Project Category: Thin Pre-Stressed Cladding
Block Five South Pearl Apartments
Project Cladding Goals
Arcis proposed a thin prestressed skin panel as an alternate to conventional precast. The project was awarded to Arcis by a competitive bid process. The system uses 1” and 1 3/8” thick prestressed concrete panels as large as 6’ x 14’. Not only the least cost alternative, the floor area and rentable footage of the retail area is increased due to the thin skin.
