Performance–Based Specifications

State of the Industry and Way Forward



Next Webinar - To be announced


Free Webinar


The presentation will discuss the efforts in encouraging the adoption of performance-based specifications for ready mixed concrete – the obstacles faced and the resources developed to address them. A review of the state of prescription in a sampling of project specifications will be discussed. The more significant items that deviate from industry standards were developed as informational Specification in Practice (SIP) topics. Each SIP identifies the commonly found prescriptive requirement, discusses the real or perceived basis for the requirement, describes adverse implications of the requirement, suggests alternative performance criteria, and Illuminates the benefits of using performance-based alternatives in place of prescriptive requirements.


The attendee learning objectives are:

  1. Relate the requirements in your specifications to industry standards

  2. Understand the benefits of performance-based alternatives that support improved fresh and hardened concrete performance

  3. Evolve design office specifications to reduced prescription with alternative performance-based requirements

  4. Recognize the synergy between performance-based specifications and quality, sustainability and cost


This webinar is approved by AIA and attendees can get 1 LU hour upon request.
