PNPCA Committee Members
Comprised of companies, firms, and individuals from Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and British Columbia, the Pacific Northwest Precast Concrete Association (PNPCA) works towards improving the marketplace. This is done through communicating new ideas and information, discussing new efficiencies in the production of precast concrete, and improving cooperation between governmental agencies, engineers, and precasters.
Columbia Precast Products are members of the PNPCA and sit on many of their committees. We do this to keep our fingers on the pulse of the industry as well as share our knowledge with other precast companies. These committees include:
ODOT – Oregon Department of Transportation: This committee meets to discuss ways to improve communication with the state and improving specifications of concrete products.
WSDOT – Washington State Department of Transportation: Similar to ODOT, Washington members meet to consider ways to improve the industry in the state to help each other grow.
Safety: When dealing with pieces of precast concrete that can weigh thousands of pounds, it’s important that safety protocols are put in place. This committee explores ways of improving safety, both in handling concrete as well as the machinery.
Manhole: The cornerstone of almost any sewage system, manholes allow access to the lines and help divert the sewage to treatment plants or other locations. Here we work to improve safety, production, and installation processes.
Marketing: Being able to communicate the benefits of a product is important for any industry. Finding better ways to get the word out is the main concern for this committee.
