Standardized precast reinforced structural members and panels point towards economy in fireproof construction of ordinary buildings up to four stories. The method described has been so developed that architects and engineers can select from tables reinforced concrete beams, columns, roof, floor and wall panels in the same manner as for structural steel. Design is in accordance with the ACI Code and cost compare favorably with similar structures framed of steel and firproofed with concrete.
