2019 PCI Foundation Professor Seminar

May 21-23, Raleigh NC

The PCI Foundation offers a program for architecture professors who wish to learn more about precast concrete design and how it can be taught in the university classroom or studio.

The program will be a three-day intensive workshop that will include instruction from college professors already teaching precast as part of grants received from the PCI Foundation, precast industry experts, and architects with precast design experience. The program will take place May 21-23 at North Carolina State University in Raleigh NC.

Professors will learn the basics of precast concrete design for buildings, and will be given tools that will assist them in teaching precast concepts to students. Additionally, the topics of integrated programs and partner relationships will be covered. At the end of the program, professors will receive “Precast in a Box” — a special resource designed to offer professors a selection of teaching tools that he or she can select to use in the classroom. Content provided to professors interested in teaching precast design will include videos, books, case studies, precast details, and other useful materials. Many of the PCI Foundation-sponsored programs have offered integrated courses with either engineering or construction management departments. If professors from either of those departments wish to attend, it can be arranged.

The program is FREE to qualified attendees. Contact Marty McIntyre at PCIF for more information, (708) 386-3715 or info@pci-foundation.org.
