Student housing faces many demands. With turnover, move ins and move outs, visitors, and the occasional party, most dorms experience a lot of hard use and require very durable construction. They must also provide safe and comfortable studying environment. High performance precast provides all this and more. Precast is inherently very resilient, and provides protection from storms, fires and manmade threats. It also provides excellent sound insulation helping to control noise. It’s thermal benefits and low maintenance will also help keep life cycle costs low; and it also can be constructed quickly, so tight schedules can be met. Overall, precast concrete provides an excellent alternative to traditional stick-built, or cavity wall construction methods.
