When a builder, architect, engineer or owner needs an answer to a technical question on precast concrete or a quick building estimate, the first place professionals should turn to is The Solutions Center, a new online tool designed by PCI Mid-Atlantic, a chapter of the Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute (PCI).
The Solutions Center is a way for the Design Community, along with Owners and Developers, to communicate with Precast Concrete Producers to get information delivered in a timely fashion. The online tool connects submitted questions and information requests directly to Producers, who can respond with the appropriate information and estimates.
“The pace at which construction moves today requires our producers to provide solutions as soon as possible in order to keep the process moving,” said Tom Holmes, Executive Director of PCI Mid-Atlantic. “No one can afford to miss opportunities because they didn’t get the information in a timely manner. Our precast producers are always willing to help the construction industry get the best materials needed for their project. And quite often, the best material selection should be precast because it is versatile, efficient and resilient.”
The Solutions Center features a simple, multi-step process where users upload project information, budget information, photos and drawings and add notes and comments along the way. “It’s very easy to use,” Holmes noted. “We’ve developed it to provide a robust user experience by making it user friendly and keeping it in a straightforward interface.”
Key features of The Solutions Center are:
- A 6-step process that helps users get information, solutions or a quote on their next project
- A Progress Indicator at the top of every page to show users where they are in the submittal process
- Visual thumbnails that enlarge for users to preview each step and prepare materials
- PCI Mid-Atlantic Producer Members receive the information and quickly respond
- Notification is sent to users confirming that their information has been received
- A 2-week notification is sent as a follow-up to all requests
