ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the Concrete Industry Board (CIB) of New York's Concrete Producer Certification Program, a new standard for concrete suppliers in New York City. It says that the certification program enables producers to bring their own mix design expertise and quality control assurance to the construction and engineering value chain. It adds that a full-time manager should be employed by a producer to oversee phases of quality and assurance to become a CIB certified.
