  • The Kalasatama Fiskari and Fregatti residential buildings in Finland took the prize for Teklas 2013 Best Precast Project. The BIM model includes piled foundations, detailed and reinforced concrete elements, load-bearing structures, and thermal insulation and brickwork.

    Tangible Benefits of BIM

    While customer demand is currently the biggest factor motivating precasters to adopt BIM, producers such as Coreslab are part of a growing group that recognize its benefits.

     
  • Using BIM for Complex Precast Elements

    The new residence hall at Valparaiso University is the school's first built entirely of precast concrete. The 300 students wouldn't be moving in so soon if not for building information modeling.

     
  • Work Platform and Safety Railing

    Saf-T-Mate attaches to a sideform with a hinged connection for safe access to the top of the form. The platform has a grip strut walking surface and a receiver to attach and lock the railing into place.

     
  • Concrete Thin Brick

  • 8.3.1

    Interlock Couplers

    Use Lenton Interlok precast construction on structures requiring moment-resisting connections.

     
  • Form Release Agent

    Brick Release reacts with lime present in concrete to create byproducts that prevent the adhesion of concrete to brick surfaces.

     
  • Automated Process Control

    COMMANDbatch CP reduces product variables and offers a consistent, quality product. Each installation is geared toward the unique requirements of your plant.

     
  • Reinforcing Steel Technology

    MMFX2 has been independently proven to be five times more corrosion-resistant and up to twice as strong as conventional steel.
