President's Message

Hello ACI CNY chapter members, friends, and colleagues:

I hope you were able to join us in September to hear Dr. Ken Hover speak about the wealth of information that can be found on the concrete delivery ticket! It was an informative, engaging (did anyone else have a strange craving for Oreo cookies afterwards?), and fun! We can’t thank Dr. Hover enough for sharing his valuable time with us.

Our next event is going to take place on 10/19 at Construction Robotics in Victor, NY for a hands-on demonstration of SAM100, the robotic mason, with a catered dinner by Dinosaur BBQ immediately to follow. Also joining us on the 19th will be Mike Palmer of the Mason Contractors Association of America, Upstate NY Chapter, with a brief message about the newly formed chapter. You won’t want to miss this one!Click here to sign up, and feel free to pass along this info to anyone who may be interested!

I would also like to remind all of the fine folks reading this that our 2016-2017 Design & Installation Awards season is just around the corner! If you were involved with or know of a unique, interesting, or well crafted concrete or masonry project that has a completion date between 1/1/2015 and 12/31/2016, your project is eligible! Our award event, held on 4/5, always draws an impressive crowd of industry professionals. To submit your completed project, contact either of our Awards Chairs – Nick Carparelli (Masonry Chair) and Greg Novitzki(Concrete Chair).

We hope to see all of you soon!

John Pillar, P.E., S.E.
ACI CNY President

Program description:

Take a tour of Construction Robotics facilities in Victor, NY, and watch a demonstration of SAM100, a brick laying robot for onsite masonry construction. Designed to work with the mason, SAM assists with the repetitive and strenuous task of lifting and placing each brick. The mason will continue to own the site setup and final wall quality, but efficiency improves greatly through the operation of SAM.

Also joining us is Mike Palmer of Remlap Construction,and President of the Mason Contractors Association of America, Upstate NY Chapter. Mike will present a brief summary of the goals, activities, and impressive achievements of the chapter since its formation a little more than a year ago.
