3D specialist Tom Beam explains how Microsoft HoloLens helps architects design better buildings.
At High Concrete Group LLC, we understand that using quality precast concrete products is critical to the success of any construction project. Over our many years in business, we’ve been able to develop different types of precast concrete and other innovative products that architects and construction professionals prefer. All of our products are built to stand the test of time as well as provide maximum design freedom and flexibility.
Unlike casting concrete on site, we manufacture our precast concrete products off-site in a factory-controlled environment. With a precisely controlled environment, we can ensure there is minimal expansion and contraction for the highest quality precast concrete products. Our process provides superior results with unwavering consistency. It’s why construction professionals choose High Concrete precast concrete products for the most challenging and complex building projects.
Our precast concrete products are also environmentally friendly as they provide high thermal efficiency, and the tremendous acoustic insulation helps to create a quiet interior environment. The can also help in the acquisition of credits that can lead to LEED certification. The reduced lifecycle and maintenance costs make our precast concrete products a highly economical construction option.
The High Concrete Group product line includes CarbonCast architectural panels. CarbonCast is a state-of-the-art reinforcement technology primarily used in building facades and double tees in parking garages. CarbonCast makes use of C-GRID®, epoxy-coated carbon fiber composite, for secondary reinforcing and shear transfer. C-GRID offers superior strength, and its non-corrosive nature requires less concrete cover.
CarbonCast components are designed to be lighter, stronger and more durable than traditional precast concrete products, making them an increasingly popular construction choice.
Precast systems consist of precast components organized into kits to make design decisions easier. These "kits of parts" contain virtually everything you need for the precast concrete aspect of your construction project. They comprise standard and custom shapes, sizes, details and finishes that are adjusted to meet the unique requirements of your project.
