Educational Event

Concrete Stands the Test of Time

Overview

AIA Milwaukee

Learn how the durability of pre-cast concrete can be made beautiful and functional through a variety of designs, colors and finishes for any project inside or out.

The purpose of this program is to provide you with a better understanding of what kinds of products are available, examine raw materials used and define the manufacturing process.  Learn how the durability of pre-cast concrete, architectural pavers for on grade and roof deck applications as well as site furnishings can be made beautiful and functional through a variety of designs, colors and finishes on any project.  This includes breakthroughs in technology which allow for finishes that look like carved stone, pottery or even wood.  We will also take a look at interior products such as terrazzo flooring and hard surface material as well as precast terrazzo accessories like base, treads and risers, etc.  We will look at the variety of installations methods that can be used for each product.  Also, we will be discussing the use of recycled materials that can be added to product make up for LEED points or simply greener thinking as well as permeable pavers.  Custom precast is ever changing but we will look at some interesting examples which show the types of unique finished products that make a project stand apart from others.
