Precast Concrete Panels Give Navy Yard Offices Seaworthy Aesthetic
The new office building at 1200 Intrepid Ave., in the Philadelphia Navy Yard Corporate Center is a sight to behold, described by some as gravity defying in that parts of the structure are designed to replicate the shape of a ship's hull, narrow at the bottom and wide at the top.
Precast concrete webinars let you learn at your computer
As an AIA/CES Approved Passport Provider, High Concrete Group offers online courses for continuing education credit. There's a 10-question quiz at the end of each narrated presentation that you need to pass with a score of 8 or better to receive your LU hour. You may take the quiz more than once; only a passing score counts.
Precast concrete webinars are AIA-registered for 1 LU/HSW or LU/HSW/SD hours. When you sign up you can choose to receive a certificate of completion. If you include an AIA member number we'll log your successful participation on AIA Discovery.
Are there others in your office who would like to learn about precast concrete? Consider getting a group together for a box lunch or seminar.
