Description

The impact of precast concrete has on the construction project schedule. I will mostly be focusing on the impacts according to vertical construction projects. In a more specific view, does precast concrete save time compared to more traditional methods such as cast-in place concrete. I will examine these differences and weigh the pros and cons. I will look at various types of projects and collect data on how precast affected the construction scope and schedule of a project. Is it more beneficial to use precast on commercial projects or is it better to use it on smaller projects such as residential homes. I would like to find when is it the most optimal to use precast concrete versus traditional methods when a project has particular time constraints.
