Ozinga Partners with Notre Dame Students for PCI Competition


In late 2017, Ozinga partnered with students from Notre Dame for the Engineering Student Design (Big Beam) Competition held by the Precast Concrete Institute’s Student Education Committee. During this annual competition, universities across the country must partner with a PCI producer to build a precast/prestressed concrete beam in hopes of winning a prize for best performance within different areas. Every year, the length and loading conditions of the beam changes, and this competition's specs included making a beam that was 22’ long. Ozinga partnered with Notre Dame for this competition in the past, and we were happy to do it again.
