Prescription to Performance

The American Society of Concrete Contractors (ASCC) is a supporter of the P2P initiative, shifting from a prescription-based philosophy to performance-based specifications for concrete.

Performance-based specifications for concrete encourage innovation within the industry, and place rigorous quality standards in place resulting in better concrete designed to meet detailed performance specifications, such as concrete strength and durability resulting in enhanced project results.

Prescription-to-Performance Contractor Checklist

The American Society of Concrete Contractors (ASCC) has developed the following Prescription-to-Performance (P2P) contractor checklist intended for use in a pre-construction meeting between the concrete producer and concrete contractor to define each party’s responsibilities related to concrete performance.

It is important to note this contractor checklist only applies to properties of fresh concrete performance and is not a contractual document. The Prescription-to-Performance checklist does not provide an organizational framework for a partnering process.

The downloadable Prescription-to-Performance P2P Checklist PDF document is available below.
