Bob Moore Construction President Earns Career Honor From the World's Largest Concrete Construction Industry Organization
ARLINGTON, TEXAS - March 7, 2017 - Ed McGuire, President of Bob Moore Construction, has been named a Fellow of the American Concrete Institute (ACI).
The ACI is a global authority and resource for standards, technical resources and educational programs on concrete construction.
According to the ACI, a Fellow is an individual who has, “made outstanding contributions to the production or use of concrete materials, products, and structures in the area of education, research, development, design, construction, or management.” The rank of Fellow of the Concrete Institute, or FACI, was first established in 1973; since then only 856 people - approximately 20 professionals per year – have achieved this recognition.
Mr. McGuire’s selection as a Fellow of the ACI follows his 2015 presentation of the Tilt-up Concrete Association (TCA)’s prestigious Murray Parker Memorial Award, to honor his career achievements in growing the tilt-up industry around the world.
Mr. McGuire is a nationally recognized leader and expert on concrete and tilt-up construction, with 30+ years of industry experience. He has provided executive-level oversight for construction and field operations for Bob Moore Construction since 1992, and has served as company’s President since 2014. In the past several years he has served on a variety of national industry committees and boards, including:
- Chair of ACI C650 - Tilt-Up Constructor Certification Committee.
- Secretary for ACI 211 Committee – Proportioning Concrete Mixtures.
- Member of ACI’s committees on Design of Slabs on Grade, Construction of Concrete Floors, and Tilt-up Construction.
- Former President and Vice President for the Board of Directors for the TCA.
“I’m tremendously honored to be selected as a Fellow of the ACI,” said Mr. McGuire. “I’ve always pursued opportunities to participate in the ACI’s committees because the organization has a major impact on the concrete construction industry – not just in Texas or the United States, but around the world. They do a remarkable job of making our industry safer and more effective every day.
“To be part of this organization is a privilege,” Mr. McGuire added, “but to be named a Fellow by the ACI is truly humbling, a highlight in my career. “
Mr. McGuire and the other new Fellows will be recognized at the opening session and keynote presentation of the ACI Convention and Exposition in Detroit, MI on March 26.
