The Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute has named Kristine McIntosh director of education, responsible for coordinating student education efforts through the PCI Foundation plus continuing education programs for precasters, architects, engineers, contractors and other members of construction communities nationwide. In cooperation with national headquarters staff, regional directors, and individual precasters, McIntosh will work on developing programs at the local, state and national levels. Previously, she worked as an independent training and education consultant, serving such clients as the Gas Technology Institute to create technical online courses and expand their available resources.
PCI has a vast quantity of technical information and other resources available to the construction community, through its Web site, headquarters staff, regional offices and local precaster members, affirms McIntosh, the Institute’s first director of education. My goal is to leverage that information to create educational programs at all levels of the organization that will help the entire construction team become more familiar with the uses and benefits of precast concrete. Working from PCI’s headquarters, McIntosh can be reached at 209 W. Jackson Blvd., Suite 500, Chicago, IL 60606-6938; 312/786-0300.
