Prestressed Concrete Committee for Economic Fabrication Minutes of May 23, 2000 Meeting

We wish to thank PennDOT for volunteering to record and distribute the meeting minutes and attachments.  These materials will be posted on the ERC Infrastructure Teams website in the near future, and hard copy-mailed to appropriate individuals with a ** designation who do not have an electronic mail address.  These individuals are asked to distribute the materials in a timely manner to others in their office who are on the mailing list.

Our appreciation is also extended to the Subcommittee chairmen, to all presenters, and to all attendees for their active participation in the meeting.  As noted, the various chairmen are again requested to convene their groups in any appropriate manner, to address and resolve issues previously discussed.  Continued status reports/recommendations/ballot items will be requested at the next meeting.

With the approval by the States of the family of prestressed concrete bulb-T shapes, we consider this to be a landmark meeting in the short life of the PCEF.  A key item at the next meeting will be status updates by each state on what family of bulb-T shapes are being implemented through coordination with industry.

The attached minutes are supplemented as follows:

III. B.  Materials and QC/QA Subcommittee

All Committee members are requested to respond to Mr. Scalia by September 1st with any comments on the draft specification guidelines.  The intent will be for a final version to be distributed to the States for review in advance of the next meeting.

VIII. C. Standardization Subcommittee

All Committee members are requested to respond to Mr. Martin by September 1st with any comments on the Guidelines and Details of the Intermediate Diaphragms.  Again, the intent will be for a final version to be distributed to the States for review in advance of the next meeting, in order that a vote be taken for adoption.

X.  HPC Definition

All States or Division Offices are requested to return the completed HPC project forms to the Chairman.  In addition to new projects, we request that the forms also be used for as many completed and on-going HPC projects as possible.

XIII.   Next Meeting

Please note that the next meeting is scheduled for Thursday, October 26, 2000, location still to be determined.

Once again we thank the membership and their management for their support of this Committees activities.  Please feel free to submit any agenda items to our office by September 15, 2000.
