The National Demolition Association (NDA) and the Concrete Sawing & Drilling Association (CSDA) announced a reciprocal association agreement that will promote the exchange of information between the groups to enhance the safety and professionalism of their industries.

“Because our industries often work closely together, we think a reciprocal alliance will benefit both groups,” said Michael R. Taylor, executive director of the National Demolition Association.

“We think it’s natural to encourage a closer working relationship between our associations to foster a spirit of cooperation,” added Patrick O’Brien, executive director of the Concrete Sawing & Drilling Association.

The Concrete Sawing & Drilling Association is an international organization of more than 550 contractor, manufacturer, distributor and affiliated member companies from the concrete and renovation industry. Its mission is to promote sawing and drilling contractors and their methods, as well to provide a forum for members to share their ideas, needs, and concerns in a constructive framework to further enhance concrete sawing and drilling technologies.

The National Demolition Association is a global trade organization representing the demolition industry. At present, the association counts among its members more than 1,100 companies in the United States and Canada, as well as many companies from around the world. Membership includes not only demolition contractors, but also general contractors, civil engineering firms, and recycling, landfill and salvage operations. The association’s efforts help members stay abreast of environmental, regulatory and safety matters, keep regulators informed about issues facing the industry, increase public and industry awareness, and provide members with networking opportunities and information on the latest technical advances in equipment and services.

CSDA has been fostering a spirit of cooperation with other associations since 1993 when it was instrumental in creating the International Association of Concrete Drillers and Sawers. IACDS is an umbrella organization of sawing and drilling associations from Australia, Austria, Germany, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom and the United States. Other reciprocal members of CSDA include organizations like ASCC, CSDMA, FICAP, SMI and TRMCA.
