Multi‐storey Precast Concrete Framed Structures

Multi-storey Precast Concrete Framed Structures

Preference :
Of all the major forms of multi-story building construction, structural precast concrete is perhaps
understood by the fewest practitioners. This is a significant ‘blind spot’ in that part of the building
profession associated with the design and construction of large or small multi-storey precast and
prestressed concrete frames. This is due mainly to two particular factors:
 The notion of using a modular form of construction, such as precast concrete, is not widely taught
at the undergraduate level because it is thought of as being too restrictive in the wider application of
theory and design instruction.
 Precast concrete design is usually carried out in-house by a small number of specialist engineers
employed by the precast manufacturing companies.
