Frequently Asked Questions

Read on to learn more about ACI

American Concrete Institute Standards are a series of codified guidelines and specifications designed to ensure the optimal use of concrete in construction. These standards cover a wide array of topics including material properties, design procedures, and construction techniques, all aimed at enhancing the safety, sustainability, and longevity of concrete structures.  

ACI Standards are utilized by construction professionals to guide the design, construction, and inspection of concrete structures. They serve as the authoritative resource for best practices in concrete mixing, placement, curing, and testing, ensuring all concrete applications meet rigorous quality and safety criteria. These standards are also essential in educational and certification programs for engineers and construction personnel, fostering a well-informed workforce equipped to handle modern construction challenges.  

The American Concrete Institute Standards are owned by the American Concrete Institute, a leading authority and resource in the concrete sector. The ACI is headquartered in Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA, and operates globally, providing educational and certification services, as well as research and technical resources to professionals in the construction industry.
