Because we prestress strands of steel through our concrete during the curing stage of production, our precast concrete panels are able to achieve larger heights vs. non-prestressed panels. Also, prestressing helps reduce hairline cracks because of the inward compression it creates. Here is an example of our 53ft prestressed panels used as a training tower for firefighters.
Due to concrete’s high thermal mass, precast dairy barns use less energy than conventional barns. By moderating the daily temperature loads, thermal mass creates a more comfortable living space for your cows without you having to spend extra on operating costs.
Here's a cool project we did in Prince George. It's an 84,400sq.ft #precast #concrete building which took us only seven months complete. You might not realize it, but this picture only shows half of the facility.
Due to the high humidity and ammonia, traditional poultry barns require regular maintenance to reach their full-service life. Because precast concrete is much more durable and is designed to withstand harsh working environments; operating and maintenance costs are significantly lower. Agricultural leaders recognize that precast concrete adds a considerable amount of value to their facilities because of the quality and low total cost of ownership.
