Meeting Description:

The ACI Greater Michigan Chapter, together with our meeting sponsor, Hubbell, Roth & Clark, invite you to join us Tuesday, March 9, 2020, for an overview of the materials and methods used to design, manufacture and construct roller compacted concrete, including discussion of some of the newer finishing techniques, along with a discussion of its economic and performance related benefits.


As a Managing Partner at Bos Concrete, Mark Bos has enjoyed the hard work of developing a business from the start. As a small ready-mix producer, him and his brother Mike, added mixers, concrete pumps and ventured into the commercial/industrial production and placement of Roller Compacted Concrete. They have completed projects and have been subcontractors from Texas, Carolinas, Virginia, California and Michigan.  Jobs ranging from intermodal, ports, truck terminals, paper mills, food production and schools. The most rewarding reflection of his career was a long day at the port of Norfolk, VA when they produced and placed more concrete in one day than in the first year in the ready-mix business.  Mark has a BA from Western Michigan University, he enjoys putting his three kids through college and spending his hobby time Nordic Skate skiing, downhill skiing, biking and running.

Steve Waalkes has worked for the concrete industry in Michigan since 2006. Steve’s primary role with the Michigan Concrete Association is to assist owners, engineers, inspectors, and contractors with the design, specification, and construction of concrete pavements and other concrete-related products.  Steve also assists contractors and other MCA members with troubleshooting and technical support regarding issues with concrete design, construction, and rehabilitation.  Steve has also given workshops and presentations around North America, on concrete pavement practices, technology, and research.

Steve has a Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering from Calvin University and a Master of Science degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin. He is a registered Professional Engineer in the State of Illinois, and a member of the American Concrete Institute (ACI), the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), and the Michigan Society of Professional Engineers (MSPE) Western Branch.  He is a Past President of the Michigan Section of ASCE and ASCE Western Michigan Branch, and a past board member of the ACI West Michigan Chapter.  Steve enjoys working on his house, camping, and spending time with his wife and four boys.
