Prefab 3" semi cast concrete panel typically 8' widex 40' long
off site manufacturing
prefab panels or prefab cages
on site assembly
less materials in forms/concrete
less depth section
less beam work
The goal is to produce a floor slab that can achieve longer spans with a continuous, “flat plate” underside.
Build More With Less
Stay in Place Form that is prefabricated as a semi pre-cast slab, typically 8-10 feet wide x 40 feet long.
Hollow plastic balls are inserted into the slab and held in place by reinforcing steel embedded into 3" concrete. The end result eliminates the use of concrete that has little carrying effect while maintaining the two-way span (biaxial) strength.
Reduced Overall Cost
eliminates up to 35% of the structural concrete. When coupled with the reduced floor thickness and facade, smaller foundations and columns, construction costs can be reduced by as much as 10%.
With virtually no formwork, no downturn beams or drop heads, and fast coverage of typically 320ft2 per panel, means floor cycles up to 20% faster than traditional construction methods. Regardless of project size, shape or complexity; simply shore, place, and pour to quickly install concrete decks.
Off-site manufacturing, fewer vehicle trips and crane lifts as well as simple installation all combine to minimize operating risks, as well as lower health & safety risks.
system offers a wide range of advantages in building design and during construction. There are a number of green attributes including; reduction in total construction materials, use of recycled materials, lower energy consumption and reduced CO2 emissions, less transportation and crane lifts that make it more environmentally friendly than other concrete construction techniques.
