The Architectural Precast Association (APA) is committed to establishing and upholding the highest level of quality assurance for the production of architectural precast concrete products. Based in Tallahassee, Florida, the APA membership spans North America and is composed of manufacturers and their suppliers.

The Architectural Precast Association was organized in 1966 to advance the interests of architectural precast concrete in North America. The APA Certification Program was instituted over 20 years ago to give the design community the assurance of quality regardless of price.


The APA is Dedicated to:

  • The adoption of specifications for architectural precast concrete and dissemination of such adopted specifications to design professionals, contractors, and others concerned with quality building construction.
  • The establishment of quality control standards applicable to architectural precast concrete.
