Pre-Cast Concrete: Energy Efficiency and Quality Without Compromising Creativity
Pre-Cast Concrete assemblies are often the design solution to tight timelines and practical installation. With the addition of insulation and a toolkit of accessories, designers can improve efficiency, quality, and aesthetic often beyond stick-built options. How do you integrate continuous insulation into walls made from a series of panels shipped across the country? Join us to find out! Real-world case studies will be used to compare and contrast with frame construction.
1. Understand how the building science layers of thermal, moisture, air, and objectives of fire and acoustics can all be addressed with pre-cast walls.
2. Identify different types of assemblies such as composite and non-composite and the benefits of each.
3. Identify common installation and detail problems that occur on the jobsite.
4. Address building code compliance including meeting life safety and energy efficiency using pre-cast walls.
