Regional Installation Classes

Below is a sample of the courses we can provide to engineers, contractors and installers to improve the storm and culvert systems designed and installed.  Please contact Walt Catlett at wcatlett@concretepipe.org for more information or additional classes available.

1. Pipe Installation (1-3 hours)

Does referencing DOT installation standards, for pipes under your roadways, increase the value of your infrastructure? ACPA has documented the installation of flexible and rigid culverts at the city, county and state levels. Empower your inspectors with this knowledge. Empower your culvert installation crews with proper installation practices and decrease your maintenance cost.

2. Precast Box Culvert Design/Installation (1-2 hours)

Empower your staff with a product that creates opportunity and enhances creativity. This class highlights the proper technique for installing precast box culverts, while increasing your awareness of common innovations. Provide your drainage crews with a valuable skill while saving your community money. Provide your engineers with competitive options for design and value engineering.

3. Jacking Pipe (1-2 hours)

A growing segment of pipe installation includes trenchless applications. They are less disruptive to traffic, communities, utilities and businesses. Trenchless installation saves time, saves money and improves roadway safety. It is important to know this competitive option. As our nation’s infrastructure approaches its service life, the jacking pipe procedure is a beneficial option worth knowing.

4. Post Installation Inspection (1-2 hours)

It’s in the owner’s best interest to know that all pipes in their system have been properly installed and were not damaged such that the pipe system is not compromised. Post Installation Inspection (PII) provides the owner the information needed to determine whether proper installation occurred prior to project close-out or final acceptance.

5. Precast Bottomless Culverts (1-2 hours)

Reduce user impact costs. Precast Bottomless culverts are recommended for increased flow capacity, uninterrupted opening spans, natural stream bottoms and reduced installation time. Precast Bottomless Culverts are available in spans up to 50 feet, with rises up to 12 feet. This class walks you through the steps of specifying, designing and installing this bridge replacement option.

6. Accelerated Precast Construction (APC) (1-2 hours)

What does it mean to your community when a roadway or bridge undergoes improvements? Does it impact the mobility of commuters? Does it present a safety risk to the construction workers and commuters? APC targets these tough issues. APC helps you incorporate innovative planning, design, materials and construction methods to reduce construction time and costs. The American Concrete Pipe Association (ACPA) recognizes the importance of innovation. APC, a trademark of ACPA members, targets project delivery time, product quality, durability, safety and economics.

7. Precast Drainage Structure Installation (1-2 hours)

Take a walk with us through the precast process from design to installation. We embedded the class with videos and practical exercises to increase your understanding of the process. The better you understand the precast structure process the greater savings you create for your city, county or and/or customer.
