The Role of the Local Partner - Making Studios Happen!

When sponsoring a Precast Studio or education program at a university, the PCI Foundation typically makes a significant contribution that extends over four or five years. This allows us to plan for the future, but also allows the students and professors at the school to get to know the local industry and understand how the school and its industry partner might work together. That local relationship has been key in making our programs successful. In some cases, it has been a regional organization and members from several producers, and in other cases, a single producer will take on the role of "local partner."

The local industry partner is a key component to the sucess of PCIF programs over the years. Not only in terms of funds donated to make the studio possible -- but also in the willingness to take time and money to give the students a unique industry experience.
