Build With Strength, an initiative of the NRMCA, celebrated industry innovators at the 2023 Concrete Innovation Awards at the Keep Memory Alive Events Center in Las Vegas last night. Winners were selected by a panel of five judges for their commitment to improving the resilience, performance and sustainability of concrete.
