Description

Precast concrete offers rapid on-site installation and cost effectiveness even in frigid weather compared to Cast-in-place concrete. PreCast is resistant to wind, hurricanes, floods, fire, and earthquakes. Concrete, as a structural material and as the building exterior skin, has the ability to withstand nature’s normal deteriorating doings, as well as natural disasters. Precast can withstand the highest of degrees to the coldest of them all. There are several methods used to protect the concrete during cold weather conditions such as; covering, insulating blankets, and most importantly enclosure of the project, and its materials to stop from causing sequential damages to the equipment and the manufacturing of the precast product in the weather conditions present.
