Precast Concrete Basics

Mercy Jewish Center

What is Precast Concrete?


Precast concrete uses molds and forms to shape desired concrete elements for an off-site building. Once it is complete, the precast concrete pieces get delivered to the job site on a truck. From there, a crane picks the piece off the truck for use in the construction of the building.

Precast has many benefits:

  • Durability due to incorporating rebar and stressed cable strands within the precast concrete to strengthen the precast concrete pieces.
  • Efficiency by constructing building pieces off-site to speed up erection once the construction site is ready.
  • Ready-made Aesthetic factors, insulation, and interior walls.


A wide variety of structural and aesthetic design possibilities make it a versatile product.
