NPCA Master Precaster® Program To Be Available in Canada Through CPCI
The National Precast Concrete Association (NPCA) has licensed its Master Precaster program to the Canadian Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute (CPCI) to enhance educational opportunities and workforce skills within the industry. Individuals obtain Master Precaster status by completing six precast-specific courses that focus on general industry knowledge, production, safety, technical, quality control and leadership. Since its introduction in 2012, more than 400 individuals have completed the program and earned the title Master Precaster from NPCA. Beginning in 2024, CPCI will offer Master Precaster courses through a combination of in-person and web-based events. The courses can be taken in any order, but all six must be completed to acquire the Master Precaster designation.

Technical Developments
The National Research Council (NRC) soundPATHS tool now includes total precast concrete scenarios
We are pleased to announce that the National Research Council (NRC) soundPATHS tool has now been updated to include total precast concrete scenarios. “The National Research Council's (NRC) soundPATHS web application is a prediction tool for the calculation of direct and flanking sound transmission between adjacent rooms. The software uses the calculation procedure outlined in the 2015 edition of the National Building Code of Canada.” CPCI is proud to have contributed to the development of this tool through sponsored research from the CPCI Technical Committee and staff involvement in the multi-sector special interest group.
CPCI Publishes the Self-Consolidating Concrete for Precast Applications: Best Practice Guide
The purpose of this new best practice document is to provide guidance to precasters, designers, specifiers, and owners/agencies on the important characteristics for the design, fabrication, and specification of self-consolidating concrete (SCC). SCC is defined as concrete that flows under its own weight or, with some agitation, spreads readily into place while remaining stable. Get your free copy!
Sustainability News
CPCI Precast Concrete Guide to LEED v4.
April 2019 - Even if you are familiar with LEED, LEED v4 is vastly different than its predecessor. Take a moment to review this valuable guide. It will provide you with specific areas in which precast may be able to contribute directly or indirectly to obtaining LEED credits.
Tool for tracking GHGs in Canada's buildings has "built in" errors. The study Carbon accounting practices need improvements, may misdirect efforts to reduce emissions
April 2019 - One of the major key findings by International Institute for Sustainable Development is that LCA studies typically do not track the carbon emissions or sequestration of what is known as “biogenic carbon” from the extraction and end-of-life stages of wood building products. Collectively, these emissions can represent up to 70 per cent of a wood product’s total lifecycle emissions., challenging the prevailing assumption that wood construction materials are lower carbon than other construction materials, such as concrete and steel.
