High Concrete Group is starting an $8 million expansion of its Denver plant that could create 50 to 70 jobs, the company announced Wednesday.
High Concrete president John “J.” Seroky said the year-long project, which he described as a manufacturing “revitalization,” will help it meet growing demand for its architectural precast concrete.
Seroky said the expansion will boost High Concrete’s architectural-precast manufacturing capacity and efficiency, lower the site’s carbon footprint and improve working conditions.
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.
