Mixed-Use Applications for Precast Parking Structures

Parking Facility has become a community building type that is used every day. The role that it plays as the entry place to our cities, towns, campuses, and buildings presents opportunities to integrate even more seamlessly into the fabric of the overall built environment. The integration of parking into the evolving mixed-use urban setting, and transportation systems, requires the parking facility to address new expectations regarding function, operation, safety and security.

This session will address areas such as site impact, mixed-use applications, and how to handle heavy loads using the newly developed Northeast Extreme Tee (NEXT) beam.

  Length: 1.0 Hour | Credits: AIA HSW 1.0 LU | PDH: 1.0

Register

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss parking structures sustainable integration with the built environment.
  • Explain the attributes of the Northeast Extreme Tee (NEXT) bridge beam and applications for the building market.
  • Understand how precast parking layouts can work with NEXT Beams.
  • Explain several cases studies for mixed use applications.

 


Learn the Benefits of Off-Site Construction using Precast Concrete, Level 2: Intermediate

Off-site construction involves the process of designing, fabricating, transporting and assembling building elements for rapid site assembly. The benefits include shorter construction schedules, greater degree of predictability in cost, reduced material waste, reduced coordination of trades and reduced risk. Learning objectives including understanding how to specify precast building systems and products. Off-Site constructions concepts will be illustrated through several mini-case studies.

  Length: 1.0 Hour | Credits: AIA HSW 1.0 LU | PDH: 1.0

Register

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand precast concrete products and buildings systems.
  • Discussing the planning, design, coordination, fabrication and installation process with precast.
  • Review mini-case studies illustrating off-site construction concepts.
  • Learn about precast specifications, design resources, and the PCI plant certification program.
  • Discuss the importance of resilient building design concepts.
