High Concrete Group LLC has introduced ThinCastTM, the thinnest precast concrete rainscreen panel available on the market. Designed for use in commercial, institutional, retail, and low- to high-rise construction, this innovation provides architects with the natural beauty and character of concrete in lightweight panels that accomplish their rainscreen design goals.
Location: Navy Yard- Philadelphia, PA
Type of Precast: Architectural Cladding
Size: 99,450 square feet
The project is a four-story office building designed by a Danish architectural firm that has relied on precast concrete to achieve the form & function in their designs. The building achieved LEED Gold certification and has won several design awards, including the prestigious Harry H. Edwards Award for Industry Advancement and Best Office Building Award from PCI in 2016. The precast concrete façade is a gravity-defying design where the loads are transferred directly through the precast panels to the foundations.
