FLEXIBLE. STRONG. EFFECTIVE.

Precast/prestressed concrete is the building material of choice in Colorado, and its popularity is growing rapidly throughout the nation. Architects choose precast concrete for its design flexibility in both space planning and architectural features. Engineers are drawn to the product’s longer spans, shallower depths and inherent fire resistance. General contractors like precast for its speed of construction and limited impact to the job site. Finally, owners are attracted to the durability and low maintenance of buildings that feature precast/prestressed concrete.

Why precast/prestressed concrete?
  • More design flexibility: Precast concrete has a superior span to depth ratio. Longer spans result in open floor plans with fewer columns, allowing design flexibility and maximized light and views.
  • Fire ratings: Concrete is inherently a non-combustible, fire-resistive material. It requires no additional fire-proofing to be fully compliant with the requirements of the International Building Code.
  • Enhanced sustainability: Concrete is a sustainable product from raw material production to demolition. It is durable, energy efficient and made of recyclable materials.
