The Canadian Concrete Pipe & Precast Association (CCPPA)

CCPPA 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.

Prequalification Requirements for Precast Concrete Drainage Products 2016

Owners of infrastructure projects that purchase precast concrete drainage products from prequalified plants, receive products that have been tested for quality through the manufacturing process and inspected upon completion. Concrete drainage products supplied from a prequalified plant comply with the requirements of the latest editions of CSA standards for concrete pipe, CSA A257.1, A257.2, A257.3, A257.4, ASTM C507M, and OPSS 1351. Reinforced concrete box units (including three sided structures) shall comply with the latest edition of the Ontario Provincial Standards Specification (OPSS) 1821 and the Canadian Highway Bridge Design Code, CAN/CSA S6. Concrete Pressure Pipe complies with AWWA C301 or C302.

This Edition has Two Divisions

DIVISION I THE REQUIREMENTS FOR PLANTS PREQUALIFIED IN ACCORDANCE WITH CSA STANDARD A257 AND OPSS 1821.

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. 

Seminars are focused on how pipe systems should be assessed from technical, financial and risk perspectives. The presentations include recommendations on how engineers can protect themselves by addressing engineering, installation and quality control issues in gravity pipe specifications. Attendees can earn professional development hours (PDHs)

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

SEMINARS PREPARED FOR:

  • Design Engineers/Technologists
  • Project Managers
  • Contract Administrators
  • Construction Inspectors
