Abstract:
Describes the use of precast elements, some prestressed, in the construction of a 12 classroom, 3 story school building. The precast elements were cast off the site with maximum form reuse and delivery programed with site operations. The precast frame for the two wings of the L-shaped structure, about 135 x 99 ft each, was erected in about 4 days. Roof and floor slabs were cast in place, beginning at the top and working down by dropping the formwork in complete bay assemblies.
