Speed of Construction
No structure is put into service more quickly than a precast structure. Any precast utilized on a job site will help save time and on-site labor costs. Instead of weeks of forming, casting, curing, form dismantling, and site clean up, finished pieces are erected quickly and efficiently, achieving schedules measured in days, not weeks. For typical 1000 car parking structure, total precast structures can save more than 30% of the construction schedule, and post and beam solutions can save more than 15%.
This time savings means less overall disruption to the neighborhood, quicker time to service and revenue generation and potentially shorter construction loan periods. Precast’s time savings translates directly into cost savings for the owner.
