TRUE OWNER VALUE

This powerful combination makes architectural precast concrete an ideal solution for high-rise offices and residential towers, where emphasis in on prestige, luxury and aesthetic appeal, or lower-rise offices and commercial structures, where economy and durability are paramount.
AESTHETIC VERSATILITY – REALIZING ARCHITECTURAL VISION
The clearest advantage of architectural precast is found in the virtually limitless design potential that can be achieved with its use.
Custom-made forms are used to create concrete panels in the precise dimensions and shapes specified by the designer. These forms introduce reveals, joints, patterns, and other expressive detailing to the panel surface.
Specific color effects can be achieved through varying sands, aggregates, and pigments. And textures can be customized through the use of differing levels of sandblast treatments. Additionally, stone, tile or brick veneers can be attached or cast into or even replicated in architectural precast panels at the plant, allowing designers to achieve dramatic aesthetic visual effects at minimal additional cost.
AN ECONOMICAL CHOICE
Architectural precast solutions are economical to produce, erect, and maintain. Substantial cost savings can be achieved by taking full advantage of the economies of scale made possible by precast concrete panel manufacturing techniques. And early consultation with Clark Pacific will help assure the most cost-effective approach to achieving the design vision.
