Precast can make unique contributions to sustainable projects in terms of reducing both the initial and lifecycle carbon footprints, says High Concrete Vice President of Marketing Gary Graziano, AIA. [Our] all-new AIA-registered courses explain recent trends, technological advances and practical design approaches in precast that can help designers fulfill their visions for people, planet and prosperity. Architects may earn their full year's requirement of four Sustainable Design LU hours, plus 3.5 HSW/LU hours, through Concrete Innovations and Answers, he adds.
