The dramatic, curved architectural facade of 1200 Intrepid takes first place in ACI Excellence Awards
The American Concrete Institute (ACI) recognized High Concrete Group LLC at its annual ACI Excellence in Concrete Construction Awards. The precast company produced the innovative architectural precast concrete system for 1200 Intrepid, the office building that claimed the top prize in the Mid-Rise Buildings category.
1200 Intrepid won against an impressive group of 13 other outstanding entrants from the U.S., France, Canada, and Qatar. The award was presented at the ACI’s 2018 Awards Gala in Las Vegas, https://youtu.be/tjeEoFjj--U.
Whether you’re designing an all or mostly precast structure or simply using precast cladding components, from traditional design-bid-build projects to fast-track or turnkey delivery, High’s precast concrete products — including the innovative, lighter weight, thermally efficient CarbonCast line of C-GRID reinforced precast products—offer important advantages and enable countless architectural design opportunities.
Brighter, more open and flexible interiors because longer spans and more open plans are made possible by precast deck systems
Virtually unlimited options of color, texture, and form
Safe Inherently superior fire resistance
Secure Excellent security and impact/blast resistance and great structural strength and durability from reinforcing, pre-stressing, or post-tensioning concrete
Environmentally friendly High thermal efficiency
Quiet Outstanding acoustic insulation and isolation
Mold and mildew resistant Weather-tight enclosures form larger impermeable components that require fewer joints
Durable Superior resistance to abuses of man and nature such as impact and soil, mold, and mildew
Economical Low maintenance and life cycle costs
Consistent results Controlled batching and enclosed factory fabrication, under controlled conditions that exceed PCI’s Plant Certification requirements
Superior to on-site cast-in-place construction and conventional outdoor precast operations
Greater impermeability and strength
Concrete mixes with low water/cement ratios are enabled by factory-controlled batching and immediate placement of concrete to yield higher strength mixes—averaging 7,000 psi or more
Precisely controlled air entrainment also results in minimal expansion and contraction and reduced cracking and surface scaling
