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.
