In March 2021, ACI launched a new online document platform ACI 318 PLUS. This platform conveniently links the content of the ACI 318 document with curated, related content from other ACI committee documents, periodicals, videos, 3-D graphics, etc. The platform also allows users to create their own e-notes for personal use and resources to be shared with other individuals. The platform is built around the ACI CODE 318-19 and its related design and detailing manuals. The platform will grow to include additional ACI documents as needed. This webinar aims to provide an overview of the platform and show you how you may be able to obtain free, no-obligation access to the platform.

The webinar was well attended by 500 plus participants.
