Please join us for an evening to celebrate the accomplishments of our local university students! We will hear from our very own Student Chapter at the University of Maryland about their competitions this past year and the other amazing things that they do. We will be welcoming Howard University as a NEW ACI STUDENT CHAPTER! We will also be hearing from industry professionals from CMC Rebar on Building Information Modeling and How it Applies to the Concrete Industry. This will be an evening to network with peers and meet some of the young professionals who will be entering our industry in the near future, and see how much they have to offer!




Understand how the development of BIM has affected the concrete industry from identifying congestion issues, working with other trades and supporting the change order process. We will also be reviewing the current challenges we face in regards to model sharing and levels of model development.


Peter Zdgiebloski - CMC Rebar - New England Sales Representative 

Peter Zdgiebloski, has been in the reinforcing steel business since 1988. He was an early adopter of CAD in the 1990’s and later BIM software in the 2000’s. Peter has detailed and coordinated 100s of projects from light commercial to heavy industrial. He has trained dozens of successful detailers over the years, many of which are detailing your projects today. Training and recruitment led him to the local community college where a “Grow your own” initiative was started. There, he instructed basic AutoCAD and Revit classes and became involved in a Region Tech Council. Peter has been involved with CRSI and ACI serving on various committees such as the CRSI Manual of Standard Practice, CRSI BIM committee and the ACI 131 BIM Committee. Within the latter committee Peter helped develop the ACI 131.2R-17 publication and two data exchanges have been derived from it. He has been involved with BIMForum and LOD definitions, crafting a presentation and several illustrations to help describe what reinforcing will “look” like at various levels. Lastly, Peters involvement in the BIM process on key projects with our customers has led to excellent quality and delivery of material.
