Precast concrete provides unique benefits that can be found with no other material because it is naturally based and offers exceptional building aesthetics. Together with structural ability, speed, and economy, precast building construction is an unparalleled choice to get the most out of your project. Additionally, working with ATMI Precast means your materials come from a single source that offers services from concept to completion. Read on to learn why a precast building system works in so many different markets.
The flexibility in methods and techniques of precast concrete construction makes it a material that can be molded into both structural and architectural elements. Working with precast concrete offers the ability to plan and construct the core and shell of a building as a total precast building system, with respective architectural features and aesthetics planned and incorporated in the process. Together with design, project management and erection competencies, precast concrete allows for a single source provider and the essential efficiencies your project deserves.
ATMI Precast offers resources to advise on economical building design and layout for your precast building project, including 3D modeling and value engineering. We also advise on field erection logistics. See 3D Model.
SPEED OF CONSTRUCTION
ATMI Precast has the ability to start the design process and manufacturing prior to beginning on-site activities. Additionally, our year-round unimpeded manufacturing and erection capabilities mean your precast construction will stay on schedule. We offer unmatched economy and speed to complete your project on budget and on time.
AESTHETIC & DESIGN FLEXIBILITY
Precast concrete provides a variety of color and textures including sand blast, acid etch and retarders to enhance appearance and presentation in your construction project. We also provide creative solutions such as inset brick and the use of liners to simulate natural stones. See Finishes section for further information. Precast concrete members can handle higher loading and longer span capabilities, providing for more flexibility with office and parking structures.
DURABILITY & SUSTAINABILITY
Concrete is a hard and highly-durable material that is resistant to wear, weather and damage. Sustainability is evidenced by precast concrete's ability to facilitate LEED Certification. Precast concrete as a construction material is clean and waste-free, and the addition of by-products reduces requirement for cement in the mix.
The concrete material’s high thermal mass can be increased through use of a core of thermal insulation.
PCI CERTIFIED HIGH QUALITY
Rigorous and verified full time PCI inspections maintain a quality manufacturing environment at ATMI Precast with annual certification from PCI.
