The product requires very little maintenance; it can simply be "washed off." The longer life cycle and fewer maintenance requirements also make precast buildings more desirable from a resale and cost of insurance perspective.
Example: Of two identical buildings being sold five years after they were built, the precast building sold for 25 percent more than the competitive material due to its efficiencies in maintenance, wear and tear, and energy usage.Lifespan
Precast will outlast the competitive set.
Quality ControlAchieve Desired Aesthetics
As precasters, we have the skill and knowledge to take an architect's vision and match the desired aesthetic with the required engineering to make it real. We create the look and engineer the pieces to work in the building.
The casting process does not rely on other critical path activities, so panels can be produced as soon as drawings are approved, ensuring panels are ready for erection as soon as foundation work and other site prep is completed. This enables quick enclosure of a building's shell because of the efficiency of the installation.
Precast concrete is incredibly responsive to the designer's needs: colors, shapes and textures are more attainable with precast than competitive materials by varying aggregate sizes, finishing process and depth of exposure.Customizable
Precast can be customized to meet the exact needs of the project, there is no "cookie cutter" approach to architectural precast or cladding.Flexible
Precast offers ultimate flexibility for a building from an attractive, durable, natural product.Designed to Match Intended Life
Precast facades can be designed to match the intended life of the building, providing long-term savings.
OthersThermal Control Advantages
Precast can help control the temperature (keep cold in for cold storage/keep heat in during winter) due to being virtually air and watertight, leading to a more energy efficient building.
