CoreSlab Structures is proud to have been chosen to provide the precast components for the Greenbrier High School Storm Shelter and Volleyball Facility. This structure will serve as a community storm shelter and a practice facility for the school’s girls volleyball team. The project includes a total of 71 precast pieces and a total of 8 erection days to complete.
The precast pieces include 19 double tees, with a span of 66′-0″, and 41 insulated wall panels. The walls are a combination of block/brick veneer, metal panels, and exposed precast. The walls are 2″ thick with vertical and horizontal reveals. The wall height is 33′-9″ and the panel widths are 10″ and 12″.
There are also 11 solid roof slabs, plus 4″ FEMA topping/over locker rooms and restrooms located on the back of the building.
The main precast benefits for the CoreSlab Structures project at Greenbrier High School include durability, cost savings, and speed of construction. Precast concrete is known for its durability and strength, making it an ideal choice for a community storm shelter and volleyball facility. Precast concrete also requires less labor and materials than traditional cast-in-place concrete, saving money and time on the project.
Additionally, the precast components require significantly less time to erect than traditional cast-in-place concrete, allowing the project to be completed quickly and efficiently. The insulated precast wall panels offer thermal benefits, helping to reduce energy costs associated with the building. Finally, precast concrete pieces are aesthetically pleasing and come in a variety of colors and textures, allowing them to blend in with the existing architecture of the building.
