Breslin Strategies Highlights the Benefits of “Taking Time To Teach

In a high-pressure workplace, the learning environment can be killed off by pressing urgency and lack of patience.

How to Use Technology to More Accurately Predict Concrete Drying Times

INSTALL Alliance Partner Wagner Meters highlights the latest technology providing more accurate predictions for concrete flooring dry times.It’s a known rule of thumb that a concrete slab needs about one month of drying time for each inch of thickness. However, it’s just a rule of thumb – and not a very reliable one at that – because many factors influence drying time.

Wouldn’t it be great if – despite all the variables affecting concrete drying – you could provide a reasonably tight estimation of the drying time for the concrete slab, and not just rely on that not-so-reliable rule of thumb? What if you could gather trend data about the moisture condition within the slab, compare the numbers to what you’ve learned from your past jobs, and give an estimation of the date the concrete will be ready for the installation of the finished floor?

Wagner Meters can tell you how you can do exactly that, using the latest technologies available in the world of concrete moisture testing.

ProSpec, LLC® Hosts Grand Opening Celebration in New Jersey

INSTALL Alliance Partner ProSpec, LLC hosts grand opening celebration in New JerseyThe event was located at the company’s new state-of-the-art facility in Fairfield, New Jersey, which focuses on the in-stock materials of Large Format Porcelain Tiles. Special hands-on tool and installation demonstrations of Large Format Tile applications were informative and allowed onlookers to see the benefits of the large panel size installation techniques.

ProSpec, LLC®, is a prominent Northeast Regional presenter of building materials distributed by wholly owned supply Companies – ProTile, ProTerrazzo, ProStone, ProWood and ProExterior Systems.

Taking an original approach, President Jennifer Giannini-Leavy, offered guests casual BBQ fare with ice cream for dessert to celebrate the Company’s third distribution location. The invited contractors, fabricators, and installers enjoyed “hands on” demonstrations of Large Format Tools and application. Following the “hands on” demonstrations, guests enjoyed a BBQ lunch and a short walk to an ice cream truck parked right outside in the parking lot.

ProSpec, LLC focuses on product presentation and recommendation to the project team – the owner, architect, designer and consultant. Other groups within the company – ProTile, ProStone, ProTerrazzo, ProWood and ProExterior Systems – were designed to provide contractors with customer service and logistics for materials that are delivered on time and on budget. This holistic approach to architects’ and builders’ needs provides an efficient and appreciated service.
