This session will provide an overview of advanced production techniques through the use of architectural precast concrete, including its composition, shapes and finishes along with the potential of Architectural Precast Concrete facades. Attendees will obtain a deeper understanding of the new categories for PCI’s Architectural Certification Program that are more specific to the various building market segments. These new categories ensure a high-quality product within each specified category, while aligning the designer’s expectations for the complexity of the project with the capabilities of architectural precast concrete.
• Discuss the purpose and benefits of certification programs
• Explain the effect of a Quality Assurance program on quality, safety and the overall construction process
• Describe the basic differences between the various PCI Architectural Certification Categories
• Explain how to specify Architectural Precast Concrete using the appropriate PCI Certification Category
