Precast Concrete Off-Site Construction: Techniques & Case Studies
​The National Institute of Building Sciences 2014 Off-Site Construction Industry Survey found precast concrete structural components were the most often used elements of off-site construction.  With the looming shortage of skilled workers forecast to exceed 2 million by 2017, prefabrication may become a necessity and a more common method of project delivery.  The benefits include shorter construction schedules, greater degree of predictability in cost, reduced material waste, reduced coordination of trades and reduced risk.   This course provides an overview of the most common systems of precast concrete products, covers basic design criteria and capabilities, and explores case studies showing how precast was used to solve diverse design and construction challenges with off-site construction.
  • As a result of completing this course, learners will be able to:
  • Understand precast concrete products and buildings systems.
  • Discuss the planning, design, coordination, fabrication and installation process with precast.
  • Review mini-case studies illustrating off-site construction concepts.
  • Learn about precast specifications, design resources, and the PCI plant certification program and be able to discuss the importance of resilient building design concepts.
