      The Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute Northeast is a chapter of the national Precast/Prestressed
      Concrete Institute. PCINE serves clients in MA, RI, CT, ME, NH, VT and NY. Our goal is to educate design
      and construction industry professionals on how to save money and enhance quality by specifying precast

      In an effort to streamline and improve communications, reduce costs and our environmental impact,
      we are going paperless.
