Projects: Mixed-Use

Precast concrete helps mixed-use projects become success stories. Mixed-use projects require integration of multiple use spaces, which often have conflicting design requirements such as a parking facility (unconditioned space) with a residential facility (quiet space), or with retail. High performance precast concrete envelope and structural systems are used for all types of mixed-use projects and provides the aesthetic and structural versatility needed to make them successful. From creating open floor plates for retail and office space, to the aesthetic versatility to make a parking structure blend in with the surrounding environment, to providing passive fire protection. Precast concrete is a high performance material that integrates easily with other systems and inherently provides the versatility, efficiency, and resiliency needed to meet the multi-hazard requirements and long-term demands of high performance structures.
