Webinar: PCI's New Architectural Plant Certifications

What you need to know when specifying a precast provider.
This session will provide an overview of the new PCI architectural certification program that goes into effect starting October, 2021. Attendees will obtain a deeper understanding of the new categories for PCI’s Architectural Certification Program that are more specific to our various building market segments. We will cover definitions of what each category means to you for these new categories in order to ensure high-quality producers are being utilized in the precast industry. These new certifications align the designer’s expectations for the complexity of the project with the capabilities of an architectural precast concrete manufacturer and define the importance behind these capabilities to ensure a high quality product is provided.
Speakers: Scott Monzelowsky and Jace Rossow

PCI Webinar: Better Design Through Embodied Carbon with Precast Concrete

Please join PCI Midwest and the other Chapters of the Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute in attending this free AIA-CEU approved education webinar titled Better Design through Embodied Carbon with Precast Concrete
Webinar Description: Now that architects have a good understanding of environmental impacts related to energy use, the next design frontier in tackling climate change is reducing the embodied carbon in buildings. This webinar will focus on best practices for determining the embodied carbon in a building, including credible sources for embodied carbon data. It will introduce common practices and misconceptions about comparisons of embodied carbon. A case study will be presented that highlights how design decisions may be influenced when comparing among up-front carbon, use-phase carbon, or whole-life carbon. The presentation will highlight existing tools related to quantifying embodied carbon.
Presenter: Emily Lorenz, PE is an independent consultant in the areas of LCA, EPDs, PCRs, green building, and sustainability. She serves as an engineer in the areas of green structures and practices, energy efficiency, thermal properties, and moisture mitigation. Lorenz also specializes in green building code and standard work and advocacy.
