ARTO Technical Director William Love recently attended Committee Week for the National Precast Concrete Association (NPCA)
The NPCA represents manufacturers of diverse precast products ranging from septic tanks and utility boxes to decorative wall panels and architectural details. William serves as Chairman of both the Building Product Committee and the Architectural Subcommittee in order to develop standards for and increase awareness of precast concrete architectural products.
The committee & subcommittee have developed a comprehensive repair guide for architectural precast concrete products which standardizes procedures for repair both before and after installation. Once formally approved, the repair guide will supplement the NPCA’s industry leading QC/QA manual and plant certification process.
Other projects include developing new AIA CES offerings, including an exciting course on sustainability to debut at the upcoming PrecastShow (Indianapolis, January 11-13, 2013), as well as guide specifications for commonly used products. Visit the NPCA website to learn more about the exciting possibilities of architectural precast concrete and the many resources available for architects and design professionals.
