April 2017 PCI Webinar

"Efficient Design Assist - Precast Concrete Case Studies"

Sign up for the webinar on April 27, 2017 at Noon PST (2:00 p.m. CDT)

What does design build really mean? How does it work for precast? Designers are teaming with precast concrete industry partners who offer design influence, engineering assistance, cost controls, accelerated occupancy, and construction efficiencies. As precasters are getting more involved in projects, owners, designers, and construction managers are turning to them for innovative solutions. We will feature case studies of iconic structures and define the precaster's role in delivering successful projects.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the importance of adding precasters to the team earlier in the construction process.
  • Learn the best way to utilize a precaster to assist the project delivery team.
  • Recognize the importance of contracting with team members to ensure that risk is assigned to the proper party.
  • Learn how evolving design roles are shaping the future of the precast concrete industry.
