The 2014 PCI Foundation Studio at the University of Southern California

For the 2nd Annual Precast Concrete Facades conference, this year the University of Southern California folded the precast presentations into the larger FACADE TECTONICS 14 conference in Los Angeles.  This was a very successful strategy, as it allowed the precast speakers access to a larger audience.  

Well over 400 architects attended this conference, and the precast presentations were full.  They had a number of outstanding presentations, and hope to encourage PCI producer-members to provide even more presentations for the 2015 conference.

Douglas Noble and Karen Kensek coordinated the conference and gave special thanks to Clark Pacific, CoreSlab Structures, and Walters & Wolf for continued sponsorship.  Doug Mooradian of PCI West put in many hours to encourage the precast participants and support the program.
