Cast in Place
LeLack Construction has a comprehensive suite of in-house divisions. These in-house divisions ensure we control the process. These divisions represent a stark departure from most companies in our industry that outsource or subcontract all of the core aspects of the completed construction project. In areas outside of our in-house divisions, we utilize professional relationships and long-standing alliances in substantive disciplines, such as engineering, architecture, design and geotechnical.
LeLack Construction meets your needs at Every Stage of Construction.
Cast-in-place is generally the method of choice for pouring foundations or slabs when constructing big column supports and structures. We can also use the material for roofing or in the construction of walls.
When and Why Cast-In-Place Concrete is a Better Option
There are several situations in which cast-in-place is better than precast solutions, such as the folowing:
- Precast buildings are less flexible than cast-in-place ones because they are made off-site and transported to the construction site. When a precast building is delivered to a construction site, it must fit into the designated space, or it must be altered before it can be utilized.
- There are additional cases when connections within a structure might be problematic, such as a containment pit housing potentially dangerous liquid. Joints and connecting pieces are commonplace in precast buildings. Even though various joint sealer and liner products are available to provide a waterproof structure, cast-in-place construction generally eliminates the need for them.
- Like traditional construction materials, precast concrete buildings can be cumbersome due to their weight and size. Therefore, heavy machinery or cranes are usually required to dump and position the precast building. In the method of cast-in-place building, these additional tools are not required.
- As an extra benefit, casting structures while still in situ may be helpful when working in tight quarters. Working in a confined space, such as a home or parking garage, might make it difficult to move and position a precast construction.
