Putting the Right Tools in the Hands of the Right People

The process of creating a customized, technology-based piece of precast concrete is one that requires precision and expertise. Many tools have been developed that make this process infinitely easier- even possible at all!- yet we do not ignore the fact that there is still room for human error. We realize that to have a premiere, quality finished product, the machinery and tools we use along the way to create that product must be top-notch. 

How We Can Make Such Bold Guarantees

When it comes to mixing concrete, our industry has come a long way. It wasn’t too long ago that manufacturing companies used the 1-2-4 method: 1 scoop of cement plus 2 scoops of sand and 4 scoops of stone was “good enough.” Just like making brownies or a great sand castle. After all, this is how the Panama Canal was built, so it must be fine, right? No longer. In the world of precast concrete, and specifically at Permacast Precast Concrete Fencing & Walls, we’ve made many advancements in the multiple factors that combine to create durable, lasting concrete. While we absolutely believe in trial and error, we are fascinated by what can be accomplished using technology today. In fact, we stake our reputation on it.

Learn How We Use Additives and Structural Filler

When creating a batch of new concrete, it’s important to be aware of the environment surrounding where the concrete will be placed before even creating a new batch. This dictates which additives or fillers are included in the mix, allowing a more accurate, durable, and long-lasting concrete to be created for each project. Since Permacast Precast Concrete Fencing & Walls is created in-house, we can control the entire process from start to finish. For us, it’s not just important to create the right concrete; it’s important to create concrete in the right ways.

In Case You Missed the AIA Conference on Architecture in Las Vegas

Recently, Permacast participated in the American Institute of Architects’ Conference on Architecture.
