Why use architectural cladding systems?

Precast has become the architectural cladding material of choice wherever superior aesthetics, durability, and construction economy are decisive considerations. Manufactured in its industry certified plants, Clark Pacific’s precast solutions combine the benefits of high durability, low maintenance, excellent fire resistance and energy efficiency. This powerful combination makes precast 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

The true beauty of precast is found in the virtually limitless architectural effects that can be achieved with its use. Custom-made forms are used to create panels in the precise sizes and shapes specified by the designer. These forms introduce reveals, joints, patterns, and other architectural 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 the panels at the plant, allowing designers to achieve compelling visual effects at minimal additional cost.

The Economical Choice

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 panel manufacturing techniques. Early consultation with Clark Pacific will help assure the most cost-effective approach to achieving the design vision.
