Precast Concrete Greatly Boost Quality of Modular Home Construction

The following highlights a few reaModular Home and Insulated Foundationsons why precast concrete is helpful in modular home construction;

Precast Concrete is Safe

Nothing is as solid and secure as a precast concrete building. Homeowners sense the structure’s quality and permanence as they walk the floors and experience the quiet of the evening. They feel safe during the worst that nature can offer, including hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, and fire. Even their neighbors offer little threat because precast protects them with superior fire resistance that meets or exceeds the fire ratings of their building codes.

A multi-unit structure built with precast floors and roofs, combined with precast dividing walls, meets these requirements and can contain a fire to within the unit of origin, leaving surrounding areas virtually undamaged.

Precast concrete does not burn, give off lethal fumes or smoke, and does not fuel a fire. Furthermore, it maintains its structural integrity even in the most intense blaze. Precast stays in place when other safety devices fail, keeping fire contained and occupant’s safe.

Faster Speed of Construction

The use of precast walls speeds the erection process. Construction rates of one floor per week and better are often achieved. Architectural insulated wall panels used for the exterior of a building can provide a durable, attractive, energy-efficient envelope.

Durability of Precast Concrete

When precast concrete elements are pre- stressed, concrete is cast around highly tensioned pre- tensioning strands that run through the steel forms. After the concrete has cured, the pre- tensioning force is released into the beam placing the concrete in compression.
