Total Precast Concrete Building System

Nassau 8th Precinct

Total Precast Concrete Building System Overview


Total precast concrete building systems integrate architectural and structural precast components, expanding the precast wall role from minimal structural support to a load bearing facade and super structure. This approach increases construction efficiency by eliminating scaffolding and on-site trades such as masonry and drywall, reducing RFIs, and producing an attractive, fire-resistant facade while saving time versus other construction methods.

 

Exterior Shear Wall System

Permits greater design flexibility because it eliminates the need for a structural core. The economy of precast can be seen when combining gravity load-bearing function with the lateral load resistance.

Interior Shear Wall System

Lateral loads are transmitted by floor diaphragms to a structural core of precast shear walls. The shear wall can be tied together vertically and at corners to form a structural tube that cantilevers from the foundation.

Rigid Frame System

All lateral loads are transferred to a moment-resisting frame that ties beams and columns together with rigid connections. The need for shear walls is eliminated.

Total Precast Literature

“In about 85% of the cases, that analysis (delivering the best building with the highest quality and the most responsive design for that budget) leads the designers to specify a total precast concrete solution.”
