Discover High Performance Precast

Recent code changes, increasing sustainability requirements, and a challenging economy are just some of the factors increasing demand for high-performance structures. High performance is not business-as-usual. The concept of high-performance encompasses sustainability; however, it goes beyond a ‘this-or-that’ approach by requiring optimization of all relevant attributes for a project on a life cycle basis. This presentation will explain what high performance structures are, and how precast concrete can help you achieve your high performance project goals.

After completing this course attendees will:

  • Understand what High Performance structures are.
  • Be able to explain the difference between sustainability and high performance.
  • Be able to explain the concept of resiliency and how high performance design incorporates it to provide multi-hazard protection.
  • Describe how precast concrete contributes to design versatility, energy efficiency, and long-term building performance.
