How do I get started using Precast?
The best way to get started is to speak with a sales representative. They will offer advice and guidance on how to design and build the structure in the most cost-effective way. A sales representative will also help with any questions about color, finishes, panel sizing, installation process, and logistics. Pre-construction is another tool used to help a client get started with precast concrete, we are able to offer a sales model and early design assist help.
Why should I design with architectural precast, and what makes it my best option?
There are four (4) compelling reasons to choose architectural precast concrete for your building's exterior:
1. Architectural precast is the only cladding material that permits you, the designer, to custom design shape, color, texture, and pattern - only you control your building's unique, custom exterior look.
2. Architectural precast enables you to enclose your building's exterior in a small fraction of the time versus most all other cladding materials - this reduces construction cost dramatically and provides your client much earlier occupancy.
3. Proven low initial cost. Architectural precast concrete is used widely by office building developers nationwide. They tell us it is their cladding material of choice because it offers a high quality "look" at a very economical price.
4. Long term maintenance is almost negligible. All you need to do is re-caulk the precast joints after 15 to 20 years.
What types of buildings are candidates for Precast?
The possibilities for using precast concrete systems for building projects are nearly endless. Precast concrete checks the box for a variety of buildings such as: offices, schools for all ages, student housing, retail, prisons, government buildings, sports arenas, stadiums, data centers, and more.
