Precast Concrete Panels: A Quick, Accurate and High Performance Alternative by Lindsay Locke

small house plans

Precast concrete is a panelized (or prebuilt) system for poured concrete that has become an alternative building technique in residential construction. The system provides benefits to the architect, builder and consumer. Precast concrete panel systems combine the energy-saving thermal mass qualities of concrete with the ease and assembly speed of a panelized building system. They install quickly, will not warp or rot, and are termite and fire resistant.
