Continuing code changes, increasing sustainability requirements, and a robust economy are some of the factors increasing demand for high-performance structures.
High performance is not business-as-usual. The concept of “high-performance” encompasses sustainability in the simplest form. It requires optimization of all relevant attributes for a project on a life cycle basis.
This presentation will explain what high-performance structures are and how to meet high standards. The presentation also covers the basics of precast concrete, its applications, finishes, etc. How can precast concrete help you achieve your high-performance project goals?
- Discuss the advantages and long-term benefits of high-performance design.
- Describe versatility, energy efficiency, and long-term building performance of precast concrete.
- Explain how high-performance design incorporates resiliency to provide multi-hazard protection.
