Our cast-in-place concrete construction
- blast walls
- containment structures
- retaining walls
- bridge abutments
- pump station foundations
- waste water treatment tanks and foundations
- wind turbine foundations
Traditional finishes can be applied to interior and exterior faces, so the buildings look similar to frame construction, although the walls are usually thicker.
- strong walls
- safety and disaster resistance
- mold, rot, mildew, and insect resistance
- sound-blocking ability
- energy efficiency and resultant cost savings
Thermal mass acts like a storage battery to hold heat or cold, moderating temperature swings. Cast-in-place walls have 10 to 30 percent better air tightness than comparable framed walls—because the concrete envelope contains few joints.
In addition to saving energy and money associated with heating and cooling, concrete walls also provide more consistent interior temperatures for occupants, increasing their comfort.
Aggregate can be recycled (crushed concrete) to reduce the need for virgin aggregate. Most steel for reinforcement is recycled. Some polystyrene is made with recycled material as well. Some of these techniques contribute toward achieving points in certain green rating systems such as LEED®.
