  2. 2. Precast Concrete Advantages Over Cast-In-Place Concrete Performing Arts Center Las Vegas, NV Total precast parking structures allow for long unobstructed spans, creating open spaces and giving more design flexibility. With various color pigments, reveals, shapes and textures, the design options are literally endless. Structures can be as unique as imaginable, or designed to fit seamlessly into an existing development. Designed to be load-bearing Tyndall Avenue for U of A for the floor structure on their Tucson, AZ interior face and detailed with an unlimited number of colors, textures, and finishes on the exterior face, the exterior components of a precast concrete parking structure serve a dual purpose. Precast spandrels at the perimeter provide for a safer vehicle restraint system over alternative solutions in a cast-in-place structure. Tyndall Avenue for U of A Parking structures constructed with cast-in- Tucson, AZ place concrete are limited in design options for the exterior appearance. The typical Renaissance Center options are an up-turned beam, grouted Glendale, AZ masonry or a cable system, unless another material is applied over the cast-in-place frame at an additional cost. Rapid Construction Bellagio Las Vegas, NV Precast concrete has significantly shorter construction schedules than cast- in-place concrete construction. The majority of the precast fabrication is completed while the foundations are being installed in the field. Once precast installation commences, the time needed to erect the precast structure is significantly quicker than cast-in-place. Precast employs a vertical construction method rather than the horizontal one used in cast-in- place.New York New York Since precast components are already cured before they reach the jobsite, they canLas Vegas, NV be erected vertically – from the foundation to the roof – in zones. Thus, complete sections of the building are ready for sub-trades to enter and begin their work, sometimes in just a few days. Cast-in-place concrete, on the other hand, is usually erected using a horizontal method. This means an entire floor must be poured and allowed to cure until the required design strength is achieved .This keeps any sub- trades work from beginning and severely limits the ability to overlap schedule items. Coreslab delivers finished precast components to the jobsite controlling waste in the production plant.
  3. 3. Precast Concrete Advantages Over Cast-In-Place Concrete Open SpaceMany designers specify precast concrete components because of theirstructural flexibility. Design options include long clear spans or largerpanels that reduce the number of columns or joints, saving time andmaterial costs. By eliminating structural columns with long clear spans,foundation costs can be reduced as much as two thirds of structuralsteel or cast-in-place structures. Additionally, the new 12-0" widedouble tee requires fewer pieces to produce and erect resulting ingreater project economy.The long span capability of precast concrete has a significant Performing Arts Center Las Vegas, NVadvantage over cast-in-place. Precast concrete parking structures aremore open and user friendly because the columns can be spaced at36’ to 45’ apart in lieu of the 18’ spacing of a typical cast-in-placestructure.Coreslab Structures is using new framing techniques, such as litewalls, to eliminate columns and shadowy spaces.Safety & security are key qualities of any parking structure design.Precast concrete’s ability to provide open, clear spans creates light,bright interiors within the structure, reassuring users while making thetraffic pattern easier to understand and navigate. University of New Mexico City North Parking Albuquerque, NM Phoenix, AZ Precast components are fabricated in a PCI Certified casting facility which negates the need for a third party special inspection, thus saving the owner significant cost for work that would need to be performed on the site for cast-in-place concrete.Precast concrete parking structures are recognized as havingsuperior performance with less long term maintenance becausethe precast components are produced in a plant controlledenvironment with a high degree of quality and craftsmanship,which is not possible to replicate on a job site. Also, all theprecast components consist of high performance concrete (5000to 8000 psi) in lieu of the 4000 psi concrete typically used forcast-in-place structures.It is possible to design and build precast structures in excess of400’ long without the need for any costly expansion joints. Cast-in-place structures typically require expansion joints at 250’ o.c.and expansion joints historically have proven to be amaintenance nightmare. Precast structures with small planned Mandalay Bayjoints prevent leaks through precise, high quality sealing. Las Vegas, NV
