Post-tensioned concrete provides a structurally efficient, reliable,
and cost-efficient solution for the construction of concrete parking
garages. By eliminating closely spaced joints found in other
construction methods, properly designed post-tensioned parking
structures are virtually crack-free, maintenance free and offer great
aesthetic freedom and flexibility for today's architectural designs.
Millions of square feet of cast-in-place, post-tensioned parking
garages are built in the United States each year. Post-tensioned
parking garages continue to gain market share in terms of both the
number of structures built and volume (number of spaces). When all of
the factors are evaluated, it is easy to see why cast-in-place,
post-tensioned concrete parking garages are the system of choice for
the nation's hospitals, universities, developers, parking operators,
commercial owners and public institutions.
