•CCI Captures Florida's Prestressed Certification Market

The vast majority of Florida DOT prestressers have switched to FDOT approved CCI Plant Certification. Plants quickly recognized that a viable certification alternative did exist and would sustain against the intense scrutiny of previous certification providers. Now firmly established in Florida with 70% of the active FDOT approved plants certified by CCI, CCI is poised to offer prestressed certification services to other states;Texas and Oklahoma being the first two to have accepted CCI Prestressed outside of Florida. Certification cost savings estimates will easily exceed 60% because no membership fees are charged.

• CCI Now Offers Precast Plant Certification

Miami-Dade County Engineers recently contacted CCI and requested a precast certification for specialty precast structures in South Florida. A new law, passed last March requiring the certifications, is now in effect. Heretofore, only NPCA offered such a certification. Now there is a choice. CCI will inspect these production facilities twice per year, administer the Level I Quality Control Technician, Level II Quality Control Manager personnel certifications and approve the Quality Control Manual. Plant inspections are performed in accordance with applicable FDOT specifications. The yearly cost of certification is three thousand dollars. Florida Septic, Inc. became the first such plant to be certified by CCI.

• CCI Expands Prestressed Concrete Certification Into Texas and Oklahoma

Speed Fab-Crete, Fort Worth, in addition to its architectural precast and TXDOT precast products, produced prestressed double tees for a large job in Oklahoma and tornado shelters for Dallas area schools. PCI certification was initially specified, but CCI was quickly accepted as an equal substitute.

• Wallace Engineering Approves CCI Certification as an equal to PCI

Wallace Engineering, Tulsa Oklahoma recently included CCI Plant Certification in the job specs for an ICC 500 certified safe room for Redbud Elementary School in Edmond, OK. The structures consist of 12" thick concrete wall panels and 8' wide x 44" stem double tees.

Originally, PCI certification was exclusively mandated by the specs which limited competition and likely raised the price considerably. By including CCI as an approved alternative, Wallace was able to award the job to a lower bidding plant which was previously unable to bid on the closed spec job. This is the second job in Oklahoma in which CCI Plant Certification was approved in lieu of PCI.
