The Canadian Concrete Pipe & Precast Association (CCPPA)
A Canadian Industry association was established in November, 2013 to represent concrete pipe producers and manufacturers of precast concrete products used for a wide range of sewer and drainage infrastructure applications, and suppliers to the precast concrete industry. The not-for-profit association was established to protect and advance the interests of the concrete pipe and precast concrete products industry in Canada. 

The key activities of the CCPPA are: 

  • Specifications and Standards development and consultation with regulators, specifiers and designers, 
  • Education of professionals involved in specifying materials and products of gravity pipeline and transportation systems,
  • Government relations, Promotion of the application of precast concrete products and systems, and
  • Research to advance the knowledge of materials used for constructing precast concrete pipeline systems and culverts.

CCPPA launches Facebook Page

The Canadian Concrete Pipe & Precast Association has created a business page on Facebook to integrate its Web presence with social media sites. Information posted on the new site will be in the form of images and video reporting on product development, technology, applications of precast concrete products for pipelines and culverts – and other structures! It will report on industry issues, specifications, Standards, and performance of buried infrastructure.

The Canadian concrete pipe and precast industry appreciates your interest in the industry and invites you to LIKE our page and stay informed about pipelines and culverts.

Informational Seminars

CCPPA engineers prepare seminars that are both informative and educational for designers, project managers and inspectors of gravity storm and sanitary sewer projects. Association staff takes the time to meet with groups in regional centres across Canada to present the seminars and discuss the content. 

The first of a series of seminars for 2015 is focused on how pipe systems should be assessed from technical, financial and risk perspectives. The presentation includes recommendations on how engineers can protect themselves by addressing engineering, installation and quality control issues in gravity pipe specifications. Attendees can earn 5 professional development hours (PDHs)

 Protecting yourself as a gravity pipe engineer or inspector 
   

Learn from industry professionals on how to specify both rigid and flexible underground pipe systems. At the end of this seminar you will have a better understanding of:

  • Assessment of pipe systems
  • Rigid and flexible pipe design
  • Rigid and flexible pipe installation
  • Trenching issues
  • Drainage systems under the Building Code
  • Quality and inspection
