PCIF and G/C PCI Host Architecture Professors Seminar in Conjunction with UNCC

The PCI Foundation and the Georgia/Carolinas PCI brought together a diverse group of A/E/C professors from around the country to discover how the ideas and experiences of previous grant recipients might inspire the future of building education. The program was hosted by the University of North Carolina Charlotte and Metromont’s Charlotte plant. Twenty-two attendees including twelve professors from nine schools joined together for a three-day program focused on educating professors in teaching precast concrete.

The program focused in part on the work of Associate Professor Thomas Gentry from the school of architecture and Assistant Professor Brett Q. Tempest of the school of engineering who conducted an innovative integrated design studio as part of a six-year grant from PCIF.
