Offsite construction allows for substantial time and costs savings. This practice refers to the planning, designing, manufacturing, and inspecting of precast concrete products prior to delivery. By moving manufacturing offsite, job sites require smaller crews and reduce the risk of accident by removing troublesome obstacles. Before concrete components arrive on site, each unit is tested for quality to ensure it is ready for installation upon arrival. Because the manufacturing process begins early, concrete products are delivered based on optimal scheduling, reducing project construction schedules, site disruption, and overall project costs. Precast concrete is the construction material of choice for project leaders looking to save valuable time and dollars.
PCI Midwest offers valuable resources for designers and engineers through its Precast Focus collection. Refer to the publication titled “The Benefits of Using Precast Concrete for Offsite Construction” on PCI Midwest’s website to learn more.
