Precast & Prestressed Concrete

Precast concrete is a construction product produced by casting concrete in a reusable mold or "form" which is then cured in a controlled offsite environment, transported to the construction site, then lifted into placed into its final location. Depending on the project, precast concrete can be used within exterior or interior walls.

Like precast, prestressed concrete can be produced at an offsite plant and transported to the job site. The difference between precast and prestressed concrete lies in how they're produced. Whereas precast concrete is simply poured into molds of various shapes and sizes, prestressed concrete is strengthened by compressing it during production and through the use of tensioning agents.
