What engineering (and CCI alumni) can do
Twenty CCI alumni converged on the shop of alumnus Caleb Lawson of Price Concrete Studio (now Lawson Design) in Orlando, FL in April 2019. They made this monstrous cantilevered concrete conference table in 2 days. I was blown away by how many people came all the way to reunite, meet face to face, and forge new bonds and friendships. And work hard to create something truly awesome.
The final dimensions are:
- 14 ft overall, 11 ft cantilever.
- 1200 lbs of GFRC for the top alone.
- 1600 lbs of steel lagged to the floor.
- Designed (engineered!) to hold a load of 500 lbs at the end of the cantilever.

The team was all alumni of the Ultimate Creative Concrete Training class, from around the U.S., Canada and England. Thank you everyone!
