Precast for Owners

Posted on April 29, 2021 by Ben Ahneman

In any format, the advantages of precast benefit every member of the construction team, but especially the owner, whose goals are always paramount.

Ahneman_042921_BodySpeed to Market is one of the largest benefits to the owner.  With precast construction the amount of time the construction team is onsite actually building can be reduced since all precast products can be produced off site and shipped to the project and erected per the delivery schedule.  Just in time shipping reduces congestion of deliveries for smaller metro jobsites reducing scheduling delays.  In northern climates reduced costs for heating and hoarding with all precast being made off site and can be erected in the winter months.  Increasing speed to market can also help in reduction of construction loan interest being accrued by a shorter construction cycle.

Other benefits for the owner include:

  • Early input
  • Meets USDA surface standards
  • Effective pricing
  • High quality
  • Energy efficient
  • Strong image
  • Fire resistant
  • Low maintenance
  • Safety
  • Smooth & ledge free finishes
