Precast

Definition: concrete cast elsewhere than its final position.- ACI Concrete Terminology


Precast concrete is reinforced concrete constructed by industrialized methods. It is characterized by dividing the building into components, which are manufactured in a precast concrete plant, and transported by special transportation equipment to the site. Precasting reduces construction time because the manufacturing of the elements is carried out beforehand. Precast concrete is reinforced with either reinforcing bars, strands with high tensile strength, or a combination of both.
