Wells Educates: PCI’s New Architectural Plant Certifications Webinar

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

Wells Educates: Precast/Prestressed Concrete Production and Assembly Webinar

Wells Educates: Durability and Low Maintenance Building Envelope Systems Webisode

The Facade Squad discusses the importance of durability when it comes to specifying requirements for prefabricated building envelope products. From a recent study, initial cost was one of the most influential factors in building facade material selection over the next five years, but that does not necessarily translate to low cost. Stakeholders emphasized that long-term maintenance and durability is also of the utmost importance and the Facade Squad will dive into how achieving these factors comes with using premium materials that maintain their aesthetic and performance characteristics throughout the lifecycle of the building.  Approved for .5 CEUs.

Wells Shares: Better Design Through Embodied Carbon with Precast Concrete Webinar

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.
