The Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute (PCI) has created a new website that offers information and resources on precast concrete’s resilient properties.
“Precast Protects Life” explores the adaptability, resiliency, life safety, and life quality of precast concrete, with videos, case studies, articles, and webinars. The information presented is intended for architects, building owners, contractors, and other relevant stakeholders.
“We are excited about the launch of our new Precast Protects Life website,” said Jim Schneider, executive director of PCI Mountain States region. “We hope to start conversations among designers, engineers, contractors, and the public about the importance of life safety and resilience in the built environment. Buildings and communities have always faced threats from forces like fires, storms, earthquakes, and floods. The idea of resilience is not new, but it has taken on greater importance given that a changing climate and the increased complexity of our structures and society have made us increasingly vulnerable to these threats.”
