Case Studies

Post-tensioned concrete provides a light, structurally efficient, durable solution for the construction of commercial office buildings, residential apartments, high-rise condominiums, and mixed-use facilities such as hotels and casinos. Longer, thinner slabs result in greater design flexibility and require less reinforcing steel to achieve the same strength as other methods of construction.

Cast-in-place post-tensioned concrete greatly reduces the floor-to-floor height when compared to structural steel options, which results in significant savings in the fa├žade, HVAC, electrical, plumbing, and vertical transportation systems. For below grade levels the reduced structural depth significantly reduces the excavation required as well as the foundation walls.
