The American Concrete Institute is offering a seminar in 24 cities, February–May, on the newly-released ACI 318-14, Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete and Commentary. The new ACI 318-14 represents the first major change in Code organization in over 40 years and has been completely reorganized from a designer’s perspective.
The seminar will help practitioners become acquainted with the new organization and various technical changes to the code as quickly as possible and demonstrate how they can ensure designs fully comply with the new code. The philosophy behind the new organizational structure will be demonstrated through a thorough review of the Code’s outline and provisions in the major chapters, to give attendees new insight into the background behind the new organizational structure and how the new organization makes it easier to find needed requirements. The seminar will cover all the major changes. ACI plans 50-plus seminars to support the 318-14 rollout, starting with:
Detroit, February 17 Chicago, April 2
