October 2021: Detailing Precast
Come join us while Chris Bubser presents on Precast Detailing.
Architectural precast concrete wall panels are widely used because they are economical and can be erected quickly while offering design flexibility through countless finish options. An often overlooked advantage of precast construction is the ability to achieve high levels of thermal performance, weather- and air-tightness. As with other construction types, adding architectural interest with design elements such as canopies, glazed projections, and overhangs also presents detailing challenges. This presentation will focus on economically addressing these challenging conditions to complete the high-performance building envelope.
