The Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute (PCI) is the technical institute for the precast concrete industry. PCI develops, maintains, and disseminates the Body of Knowledge (BOK) necessary for designing, fabricating, and constructing precast concrete structures. The BOK refers to the collective knowledge of an industry that is relied upon to design and build with a specific material or system. It is from this BOK that building codes, design guides, education programs, certification, and more are derived.
PCI has developed many resources to aid architects, engineers, and other stakeholders in planning, designing, constructing and maintaining precast concrete structures. This section organizes these resources by topic, rather than by project type. Simply click on the appropriate section below.
