PCI Northeast will host a session at BuildBoston this year

The session is Friday November 19, 2010 from 8:30 - 10:00 AM

Ths session name is “Sustainability through Durability, Adaptability and Deconstructibility”. The longer a building remains in service the smaller the environmental impact is per year of service by incorporating strategies for durability, adaptability and deconstructablilty in the design phase of a project. All buildings eventually will be replaced therefore Design for Deconstruction (DfD) may be one of the most important green design strategies for achieving material sustainability. Precast Concrete is one of the few material systems that can meet this demand. Through a series of case examples we will discuss how precast can easily adapt to future changes. We will discuss connection technologies and strategies for adaptability and outline the requirements for high performance building design with precast concrete.

Quality Assurance – You Lifeline to a Better Project (August 19)

Webinar

All projects are designed to meet some form of specifications. Since it is impossible for an architect or engineer to observe or inspect all the materials, components, and construction, it is vital that other procedures be in place to provide assurance that the project is build as expected. This course will address certification programs and their essential elements.

PRECAST FAQ CORNER

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Which quality control manual should be specified in the specifications for my project?

A. PCI Certification provides a system of categories. This system ensures that producers are qualified to produce the products that you are specifying. Precast concrete plants can be certified in as many as four product groups:
Group A—Architectural Products;
Group B and BA—Bridge Products;
Group C and CA—Commercial (Structural) Products; and
Group G—Glass-Fiber-Reinforced Concrete (GFRC) Products

For structural precast prestressed products in Group C, Quality Control for Plants and Production of Structural Precast Concrete Products MNL-116 will govern. 

For architectural precast concrete products in Group A, Quality Control for Plants and Production of Architectural Precast Concrete Product MNL-117 will govern.
