The series also explores money-saving tools available to planners and builders through interviews with members of Congress, the administration and industry.
In the latest episode, Wyoming senator John Barrasso discussed infrastructure and his family’s ties to the cement and concrete business.
Last week, PCA president and CEO Michael Ireland explained the Life Cycle Cost Analysis approach to planning infrastructure projects.
Ireland says: “It’s taking a look at a way to make sure the money you’re spending is spent wisely. That’s why we encourage using Life Cycle Cost Analysis. We’re not telling you what product essentially is going to be picked or endorsing one particular product over another; the actual engineering tool does that. There’s going to be places where one product is better than another product, and perhaps both products are used on different parts of the system. It’s fair, it’s engineering, and it’s science.”
