Founded in 1904 and headquartered in Farmington Hills,
MI,USA, the American Concrete Institute is advancing concrete knowledge
by conducting seminars, managing certification programs, and publishing
technical documents. The American Concrete Institute currently has
98chapters and over 20,000 members spanning 108 countries.
AMM provides exclusive news and pricing information for the ferrous and
nonferrous metals markets with a focus on North America and world
markets where applicable. Working with PTI and CRSI, AMM publishes
price indicators on its website designed to reflect the relative price
movements in three grades of steel: rebar, low carbon rod (used for
mesh) and high carbon rod (used for prestressing strand.)The higher the
number, the higher the price of the steel. The value of100 represents
the average price over an 18-month period from March2007.
ASBI was incorporated in 1989 as a nonprofit organization to
provide a forum where owners, designers, constructors, and suppliers
can meet to further refine current design, construction and
construction management procedures, and evolve new techniques that will
advance the quality and use of concrete segmental bridges.
Official Co-Sponsor of the 2010 PTI
Technical Conference. For more than 50 years, concrete contractors have
relied on CONCRETE CONSTRUCTION as their key information resource on
construction methods, technical information, and product updates. Each
issue reaches companies nationwide that are actively involved in
structural engineering, design, specifications, use, placement, and
in the spring of 2009, the Concrete Joint Sustainability Initiative
represents over 20 associations that, as a group, will concentrate on
the sustainable development applications of all concrete structures. It
aims to project a unified industry front and present a common
message.The Initiative is not an organization; it has no staff.
Officers and staff members of its partner associations attend meetings.
These staff representatives are relied on to carry out its activities.
Member task groups have been created to develop and implement current
program objectives. The three charter organizations- American Concrete
Institute (ACI), Portland Cement Association (PCA), and National Ready
Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA)- function as its steering
committee,with PCA’s Vice Chair and ACI’s President serving as meeting
Chair and Vice Chair, respectively.
The National Concrete
Bridge Council is a council of allied industry organizations dedicated
to: promote quality in concrete bridge construction; gather
and disseminate information on design,construction, and condition of
concrete bridges; establish communication with federal and state
departments of transportation,city and county public works departments,
and consulting engineers,and provide information on behalf of
the concrete industries to codes and standards groups.
The HP CIP Consortium is a cross section of
construction professionals representing contractors,
vendors,tradespeople and the engineering community, working together to
educate the public, and promote the use of high performance
cast-in-place concrete construction.
PTA's objectives are to: 1) promote the use of
post-tensioning in buildings, bridges,silos and tanks, ground floor
slabs and other structural types throughout the UK construction
industry, 2) promote best practice in the design, procurement
and execution of post-tensioned structures, 3) support and
take part in research and development to improve the efficiency and
technical capabilities of post-tensioning, 4) support high
quality in PT construction through the CARES QA scheme and other
relevant bodies, and5) support safe working practices throughout the UK
PT industry and to maintain high levels of training.
