The construction of precast concrete barracks buildings for the United States Marine Corps artillery training facility on the desert near Twentynine Palms, Calif., is described. Thin-shell ribbed roof panels are manufactured in a central casting yard and wall panels are cast on the building floors. The wall panels are erected and plywood lined steel forms for cast-in-plce ridgid frames are attached. Roof panels are transported from the casting yard, set in position on the steel forms and the ridgid frames are concreted.
