Precast Concrete Off-Site Construction: Techniques & Case Studies
Hosted by the Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute
The National Institute of Building Sciences 2014 Off-Site Construction Industry Survey found precast concrete structural components were the most often used elements of off-site construction. With the looming shortage of skilled workers forecast to exceed 2 million by 2017, prefabrication may become a necessity and a more common method of project delivery. The benefits include shorter construction schedules, greater degree of predictability in cost, reduced material waste, reduced coordination of trades and reduced risk.
This webinar will provide an overview of the most common systems of precast concrete products, cover basic design criteria and capabilities, and explore case studies showing how precast was used to solve diverse design and construction challenges with off-site construction.
