BENEFITS / SUSTAINABILITY

MAIN ADVANTAGES OF PRECAST CONCRETE:

SPEED OF CONSTRUCTION

The modular precast system allows accelerated construction which means important cost savings to our customers. When the project is in excavations and foundations phase, precast production starts and the panels are ready for installation just as the building starts to rise.

DURABILITY

Concrete is a material that continues to get stronger and better over time. Architectural concrete fabricated by PRECARSA is specially designed to offer high performance to withstand the weathering effects.

QUALITY CONTROL

Quality control in precast concrete starts from the preliminary stages of design to the final installation of the element. Architectural precast is fabricated with highly skilled labor versus the many variables found in cast-in-place or construction sites.

COST BENEFIT

The many advantages of precast concrete as speed of construction, build quality and better building lifespan will turn in an excellent cost benefit ratio.

SUSTAINABILITY

Precast concrete contributes to LEED certification and green practices in several ways:

  • Precast concrete is a highly durable material.
  • The production and installation process allows a very reduced waste construction system
  • Precast concrete is a also reusable material.
  • The thermal mass of precast concrete absorbs and releases heat slowly, allowing to reduce temperature peaks and more efficient HVAC systems.
  • Precast concrete walls may also be made with insulation to increase thermal resistance.
  • FORMS AND COLORS

    Architectural concrete panels are made of a moldable material that can be produced to practically any shape and texture that, combined with many available colors, it gives a big array of design possiblities.
