Blast Resistant Design

Fresno Federal Courthouse

Whether for courthouses, prisons, service member housing or other federal building projects, blast resistant design considerations have become much more prevalent in construction since the Oklahoma City federal courthouse bombing in April 1995 and the terror attacks on September 11, 2001.

Blast resistant precast offers an economical and sound strategy to address anti-terrorism and force protection design requirements, without sacrificing aesthetic aspirations of the owner and design team.

As Clark Pacific has shown on numerous projects, starting with the Lloyd D. George US Courthouse in Las Vegas (the first US Courthouse built after the Oklahoma City bombing), you can achieve state-of-the-art blast resistance and beautiful architectural features integrated into single precast panels.

We are fortunate to have worked with some of the most capable design firms in the country on issues of blast consideration in precast and we have applied our learning across many projects.  We can bring our experience to bear for your team on your next project.

Precast. Building for Life.
