Build for Tomorrow with Precast, Prestressed Concrete

Buildings are designed to meet the needs of today, but also must be ready to rise to the challenges of tomorrow. Change is a constant. Whether it’s adapting to a shifting climate or evolving to meet the needs of future occupants, buildings must be strong and flexible to serve communities now and in the decades to come.

Precast, prestressed concrete has many attributes that help architects, engineers and owners build for tomorrow. In the right applications, precast is durable, efficient, resilient, sustainable, safe and healthy. Learn more about how precast, prestressed concrete can contribute on your firm’s next project.

   



Precast concrete stands the test of time, and can deliver a service life of 100 years or more. Strong, solid and able to stand up to even the harshest environments, precast performs today and tomorrow.

Built in tightly controlled plant conditions, precast is resource efficient. It is also site efficient, in that its erection requires no storage or staging and creates minimal disturbance to the jobsite. And the thermal mass effect can contribute to energy efficiency strategies that save emissions and costs over time.

Buildings of tomorrow must stand up to environmental and human-caused stress, and precast concrete can aid in that effort. A resilient building is one that not only withstands environmental change, storms, blast and other disturbances, but also can return to usable function soon after.

By delivering a high level of performance and energy efficiency over a long service life, precast minimizes its production impact by spreading it over an extended life cycle. It is a high performance material that has many advantages to sustainable design.

In any time, a building’s first responsibility and highest purpose is to keep its occupants safe. The inherent strength of precast protects occupants from severe storms, earthquakes and blasts. It is also a noncombustible material that stands up against the threat of fire.

Buildings of tomorrow must not only provide safety, but also support the health of occupants. Precast, prestressed concrete is an inert material that does not off-gas or promote the growth of mold.
