The American Concrete Institute (ACI) selected the Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilizations (MuCEM) in Marseille, France, for its 2015 Concrete Construction Excellence Award. The award is given to a project demonstrating excellence in concrete innovation and technology, standing out above all others.
The American Concrete Institute (ACI) will be holding fall seminars focusing on its standard, ACI 318-14, Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete and Commentary, which will also be available as an online course.
Designing proper construction details is an important part of architecture and engineering practice that involves more than just a grasp of building technology. If designers are not also alert to market conditions, then their details—no matter how elegant—can be ineffective and hinder the pace of a project.
