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.
The Heights Residence Halls at Montclair State University, Montclair, New Jersey, feature carbon fiber-reinforced horizontal insulated load-bearing cladding.
When it’s first mixed, concrete is a liquid, so it can take the shape of the form it’s poured into, the mold that’s designed to your specifications. Curves, dentil details, colonnades, cornices, projections, colors, forms, finishes … all are possible and defined by your design, as well as:
Virtually unlimited colors and textures can be achieved through the use of various aggregates, cements, pigments, and finishing techniques.
Textures including formliner shapes, artwork, and lettering provide distinctive accent treatments.
Finishes ranging from light sandblast and acid etch to heavy retarded exposures allow surfaces to be differentiated and deepened to meet design requirements.
Almost any veneer, including brick, stone, and tile, can be incorporated into a precast facade.
Brighter, more open and flexible interiors because longer spans and more open plans are made possible by precast deck systems.
