Project Spotlights & Design Assistance
Keep in mind as you are cross training employees on new tasks or providing “work from home” tasks don’t overlook the benefits of getting your projects uploaded to the Project Spotlights Page on the CRMCA Website. Once your projects are submitted via this form we can add them to the webpage as a featured project, create a Case Study for your use (pdf for print / website, etc.) and we can add the project to ConcreteTracker.org
The form is simple and self explanatory. Check it out today as well as some other projects that have been added to date.
