Image of i.Check App

On-Site Solution with i.check

Our i.check application provides you with the needed technical information at your fingertips. This handy app was created to help you be proactive in alleviation potential issues with Masonry or Concrete projects. Pictures with cause and effect information on your mobile devices gives you a quick reference right on the project. Our app provides some helpful checklists to help avoid future trouble or to help you troubleshoot in the middle of a project. Concrete producers and masonry contractors are using the app as part of Quality Assurance programs. The Checklists are for Concrete: Production and Maintenance, Quality Control and Pre-Construction. Our team of technical service engineer are open to hear your feedback for future upgrades as well. Our goal is to provide on-site solutions to help customers identify, improve and prevent issues. If your student club (ASCE, AGC, ACI, etc.) would be interested in a written project competition using i.check, we will sponsor a technical judge and a few prizes. Try a fun activity identifying issues you may see on your campus by doing a 300-500 word write up with a few photos. If interested use the contact us function in our i.check app.

Seminars we Deliver

Over 150 years of innovation and experience has culminated into a wealth of industry knowledge that is integral to our success. Partnering with the American Institute of Architects (AIA) has enabled us to share that knowledge with architects looking to meet their professional goals and advance their careers through continuing education. We have an internal speakers bureau here at Lehigh Hanson that formed a team from our Sales, Quality Control, Technical services and marketing on various topics about our construction materials and their applications. As official Education Providers through the AIA, we proudly offer many relevant courses. We have registered at least 10 of these courses for AIA credits and are willing to present these in person in the states where we have operations and sales. Please talk to your local sales or quality control/technical services representative or contact us at icheck@lehighhanson.com.

These topics are: Photocatalytic Concrete Technology, Self-Consolidating Concrete, Environmentally Conscious Portland-Limestone Cement, Pervious Concrete – A Concrete Technology for Run-Off, Cement Manufacturing and Mortar Technology, Comparing Cement and Lime to Masonry Cement, Proper Masonry Workmanship, Masonry Sand Properties and Effects, Designing with Color Mortar, The use for Slag Cement for Sustainable Concrete, Reflective Floors, Key to Success for Hot and Cold Weather Concrete .
