January 2018 Meeting Sponsor is Precast Concrete Manufacturer's Association of Texas

Precast prestressed concrete is a manufactured product. Precast prestressed concrete is unique among building products and building systems because it can act as a complete building system or as an enhancement to cast-in-place concrete, steel framed or even masonry structures. A total precast prestressed concrete structure might combine structural prestressed steel reinforced concrete beams, columns, double "t"s or hollow core slabs with insulated wall panels, spandrels or architectural precast panels to construct buildings with both form and function. As an architectural veneer, precast concrete easily compliments and connects to cast-in-place concrete, steel framed and masonry structures providing sustainable aesthetics and durability.

Precast Concrete Manufactures' Association is a group of
Texas and Oklahoma precast prestressed concrete fabricators that manufacture concrete products for an array of building projects including parking structures, hospitals, schools and multifamily residential buildings. Additionally, PCMA members fabricate most of the bridge components, traffic barriers and transportation related retaining wall panels used in Texas. Please explore our website to learn about precast concrete products, our member fabricators, AIA and professional development opportunities, sustainability and more.
