The mission of the PCI Foundation is to foster educational and research initiatives focused on innovative approaches to the integrated and sustainable use of precast concrete design, fabrication, and construction. It is a charitable 501(c) 3 corporation which supports the inclusion of precast concrete programs at accredited college and universities throughout the US.
As part of this Foundation, Wells Concrete is a Studio Sponsor for the Minnesota State University, Mankato Engineering and Construction Management Program. Teaching future engineers, architects, and construction management about designing with Precast Concrete is a unique program funded by PCI Foundation. Precast Studios are collaborative education opportunities developed at leading universities with architectural and structural engineering programs.
We are also a studio sponsor for the University of Minnesota Duluth. This multidisciplinary educational program aims to combine the traditional approach to concrete engineering education with cutting-edge knowledge related to resiliency and business management. Traditionally, engineers learn the basics of concrete design, while possibly discussing precast concrete, but they fail to investigate why to choose precast concrete or how does resilient precast concrete fit into an organizational dynamic. This program will address those questions and others while challenging students to push the envelope of resiliency in precast concrete.
Not able to attend the BBQ, but still want to support the cause? You can donate to the foundation here.
