Position Statements

ASA has produced position statements on the best practices for proper shotcrete placement. To date, position statements have been issued by the ASA Board of Directors, Underground Committee, and Pool & Recreational Shotcrete Committee. These statements have also been published in our trade magazine, Shotcrete.
