VIDEO: Charles Kelly at Converge 2013
B.C. Ready-Mixed Concrete Association president Charles Kelly was one of the organizers of Converge 2013, a conference where various sectors of the construction industry met to discuss preferential policy in British Columbia and beyond.
Kelly discussed the Wood First Imitative, and stressed the necessity of a mix of products, including concrete, steel and wood, on any project.
He also discussed the reasons for creating Converge 2013, including creating an industry-wide response to preferential policy, and said it was important to orient the industry towards the future and that the conference was geared towards that goal.
