Why Precast

Why Precast WHY PRECAST

Durability, Aesthetics and Quality.

At Spancrete, we understand that using quality precast concrete products is critical to the success of any construction project. All of our products are built to stand the test of time as well as provide maximum design freedom and flexibility.

Unlike casting concrete on site, we manufacture our precast concrete products off-site in a factory-controlled environment. With a precisely controlled environment, we can ensure there is minimal expansion and contraction for the highest quality precast concrete products. Our process provides superior results with unwavering consistency.

Every day, more architects, engineers, contractors, developers and owners specify Spancrete precast building components for their construction needs. Versatile precast concrete components can be specifically designed to meet most construction requirements.

Discover the advantages of using these components:

  • Product Quality
    • Spancrete precast products are manufactured in PCI Certified plants in quality controlled environments in Wisconsin, Georgia and Florida.
  • Reduced Life-Cycle Cost
    • The high-strength, high-performance concrete that is utilized in the production process resists weather, fire, corrosion, and vandalism.
  • Ease and Speed of Construction
    • Spancrete precast lends itself to compressed construction schedules. Components are manufactured off-site, allowing for a just-in-time delivery system. Speedy construction means earlier completion dates which equals earlier occupancy.
  • Structural Integrity and Reliability
    • The combination of standard structural shapes and the capability of casting custom shapes gives designers maximum flexibility. Economies of scale can be achieved through repetition while the inherent plasticity of concrete allows for unique shapes.
  • Aesthetic Appeal
    • An infinite variety of sands, cements, aggregates and pigments combine to achieve endless colors, textures and finishes.
  • Green Products
    • Precast Concrete is a green product and can provide up to 26 LEED points.

Environmentally Friendly

Our precast concrete products are also environmentally friendly as they provide high thermal efficiency, and the tremendous acoustic insulation helps to create a quiet interior environment. The reduced lifecycle and maintenance costs make our precast concrete products a highly economical construction option.

Our Precast Systems Create Easy Design Decision-Making

Precast systems consist of precast components organized into groups to make design decisions easier. These systems comprise standard and custom shapes, sizes, details and finishes that are adjusted to meet the unique requirements of your project.

Precast concrete products from Spancrete are used in a variety of construction projects. View our project gallery to discover the many applications for Spancrete products and services.
