Precast Concrete – Introduction
For the better part of the last century, architecture has evolved and changed in many case for the better. Buildings could be built taller, larger, and structurally more sound based on a number innovations. One such innovation was the invention of pre-cast concrete forms. Initially standard concrete in appearance, these forms have morphed into designer structures created to not only provide structural support and strength, but are often times used in modern architecture to provide innovative design to the appearance of the building to which they are adhered. Below will be a brief overview of the history, uses for both yesterday and today, as well as where those creating and utilizing precast concrete look to take it in the future.
