Abstract:
Precast concrete was used for the construction of the Champagne complex in Calgary, AB, Canada. Precast provided the clean façade with French Provincial sandstone finishes for the lower exterior walls, off-white finish with contrasting reveals for the upper floors, and delicate architectural features for the buildings. Precast also served as the primary structural material. Pre-installed windows allowed for faster enclosure of the building.
