Abstract:
Three hundred and fifty thousand square feet of precast panels, aggregating approximately 6700 tons, were factory produced, trucked 117 miles to job site, and erected to form the walls, floors, and roofs of various types of buildings. Eight basic panels, ultilizing 4-ft module, were adapted to barracks, mess halls, warehouses, and various other occupancies. Average weight of about 38 psf for the 24-ft span panels was a factor in making transportation and production at a factory economical.
