How Precast Builds: Parking Structures that Deliver the Precast Concrete Promise
This webinar will highlight two award winning precast concrete parking structure project case studies, one in the Midwest and one on the West Coast. The learning content will focus on how the precast concrete components were able to be designed to meet the building’s program requirements. They will also describe how the use of precast concrete for the project facilitated seamless integration with adjacent natural features and adjoining structural and architectural systems.
- Understand precast concrete parking structures, including their standard components and custom design opportunities.
- Understand best practices in designing parking structures with precast concrete systems for aesthetics, resilience and safety.
- Use a mixed-use structure case study that includes a precast concrete parking structure to (Ft. Wayne, IN) to help participants understand the core value of precast concrete parking structures for owners and design teams.
- On the basis of a higher education case study presentation (Sacramento, CA), understand how precast concrete parking structures can be designed to connect with nature and provide exceptional resilience.
