The Concrete Sawing and Drilling Association (CSDA) has redesigned is web site. The new look aims to provide the best online services for members as well as the architects, engineers, general contractors and government officials who specify concrete cutting products and applications, according to the organization.
CSDA members can log in to the members section to access safety and training materials or download sample forms and worksheets. The association currently has 27 industry-specific standards, specifications, tolerances and best practices available, along with 92 toolbox safety tips for members to use in their day-to-day work.
The site also gives members access to CSDA’s online training program, which consists of 26 web-based courses that have been completed by more than 500 students to date.
Specifiers of concrete cutting also are welcomed to the new site with many resources to aid them when specifying concrete cutting services. They can submit jobs for bid requests by CSDA members via a simple, online form or look up sawing and drilling specifications, standards and tolerances in PDF format from all the major sawing and drilling applications. There also are articles on concrete cutting capabilities and diamond tool technology, together with a contractor search where specifiers can locate a professional CSDA contractor serving their area through a clickable map.
We understand the crucial role that specifiers play in our industry, and so it is important that we address their needs while promoting our members,” said CSDA Executive Director Patrick O’Brien. “The redesigned Web site does a great job of forging links between CSDA contractors and specifiers, and keeps the association and its members ahead of the curve,” he added.
All other popular features like the membership directory, forums, cutting news section, event calendar, training information, Concrete Openings magazine, CSDA benefits and the discussion forums remain in place for members and non-members to get the most out of their visits to the site.
The redesign emphasizes CSDA’s aim of providing members with better tools to help their businesses succeed and educating specifiers on the advantages of sawing and drilling.
