The Rise of Elevated, Post-Tensioned Concrete Slab Systems

The Rise of Elevated, Post-Tensioned Concrete Slab Systems

  As our communities in-fill and become more dense, more multi-level structures will be introduced. Post-tensioned slabs are becoming a larger part of the design and construction mix here. We’re seeing these systems become a more economical and viable option. Is Post-tensioning right for your job?  When dealing with multilevel structures–whether residential, parking, office or [Read More]
