Concrete Innovation Council

The Concrete Innovation Council (CIC) identifies technologies and innovations which provide needed solutions for the concrete industry and helps implement their use when appropriate.


The American Concrete Institute (ACI) has formed Innovation Task Group 93‐12 ITG‐12 (ITG‐12) to develop code requirements, design, and prescriptive provisions for additively constructed above‐ grade concrete walls for residential structures for incorporation into ACI 332 and the International Residential Code (IRC).

The ITG‐12 task group is seeking proposals from qualified firms to create design and prescriptive code provisions that current building codes will adopt to meet design requirements for strength, serviceability, and durability requirements, with an optional second path of referencing performance‐based testing/certification.

The ACI Foundation’s Concrete Innovation Council (CIC) will manage the Request for Proposal (RFP) process. The awardee will be required to execute a contract with the ACI Foundation that details milestone deliverables tied to payments. Terms will be established based on the project timeline.

To support ACI’s expanding focus on technology and innovation, the CIC collaborates with the concrete community and ACI's Director of Concrete Technology to examine and support innovative solutions for industry-wide challenges. The council is comprised of a diverse set of industry representatives - material suppliers, architecture & engineering firms, contractors, academics, owners and regulatory organizations.

The field of concrete materials, building, and structures is continually infused with new ideas and practices. New materials, products, methods, designs, and equipment impact the way infrastructure and buildings are constructed. Do you have a transformative idea or initiative that can positively impact the industry?
