Too few building professionals have a strong working knowledge of precast construction, and we’d like to change that. When comparing masonry, site-cast, and structural precast construction, it’s easy to point out the advantages of precast. And while it’s reckless to say that one form of construction is inherently better than another, when you compare the three styles head-to-head, the differences may surprise you.

A structural precast panel is as close to turnkey as building materials get. With precast, the exterior cladding, load-bearing components, insulation, and interior substrate are all engineered into a single, multi-functional, and modular unit.

“We do everything in-house, start to finish,” said Joe Dammann, a Fabcon sales engineer with more than 20 years under his belt. “Fabcon does it all. This means our customers have one person who works with them from design to fabrication to installation.”

A building made with Fabcon structural precast panels goes up fast, requires fewer subcontractors, and delivers more value for the life of the building. To get a clear picture of how structural precast, masonry, and site-cast construction compare and differ, visit Fabcon’s VERSUS section.
