Abstract: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.

Roof panels are transported from the casting yard, set in position on the steel forms and the ridgid frames are concreted.
