Precast Concrete Panels Give Navy Yard Offices Seaworthy Aesthetic
The new office building at 1200 Intrepid Ave., in the Philadelphia Navy Yard Corporate Center is a sight to behold, described by some as gravity defying in that parts of the structure are designed to replicate the shape of a ship's hull, narrow at the bottom and wide at the top.

Highly engineered and customized, precast systems offer clear advantages. To capture this value, precast producers work with design team professionals to proactively manage challenges and effectively utilize the precast construction process. For example, precast projects tend to consider some activities earlier than they would be considered in other systems. In some cases the procurement process may need to be rethought to include contractor and precast producer inputs. The earlier in the project that the precast producer becomes involved, the more value can be realized. Precast producers provide design, engineering, and specification assistance, constructability assistance, LEED analysis, thermal performance analysis, samples, budgeting, shop drawings, mockups and systems testing, and erection services.
When specifying precast concrete, consider including a requirement for PCI certification. PCI certified precast producers undergo two unannounced rigorous inspections annually.
More than 120 areas are inspected by a completely independent auditing firm hired by PCI. PCI Certification meets IBC requirements and eliminates the need for special inspections, saving direct costs that are incurred with masonry construction. PCI certification is also available for erectors. Precast members are most vulnerable to damage during erection. Certification is an extra measure of protection you can specify to help assure project quality.
