Endless Aesthetic Possibilities
With Formliners & Colour Stains

Host: Ray Clark - Sonny Arora - Dan McBride.

Formliners can be used to create almost any design desired; brick, stone, wood, masonry, photos, mountains or cultural icons. Adding formliners to precast concrete, you are only limited by your imagination. Colour can define form, shape and space. The perfect colour dramatically enhances the visual appeal of a structure. In recent years, colour staining has exploded onto the marketplace and allowed designers to create new innovative designs. Join us to learn more about the use and applications of Formliners and Colour Stains for precast concrete construction.

Integrated Ventilation Solutions Significantly Improve
Air Quality and Reduce Airborne Disease Transmission

Host: Tom Machinchick and Jack Laken

Integrating TermoBuild Technology with the building envelope, precast concrete floors and HVAC system combines four systems: heating, cooling, fresh air ventilation, and thermal energy storage. In addition to elevated efficiency, Integrated Ventilation Design reduces the risk of the spread of infectious diseases by significantly curtailing the recirculation of stale air within the building. This session will substantiate the value of integrated ventilation design. Discover how to position precast concrete hollowcore slabs as a smart, sustainable building material for new construction and retrofits for low-energy or zero net energy intelligent buildings, and more.

Prefab Total Precast Concrete Building Systems: An Important Method of Accelerated Building Construction

Host: Malcolm Hachborn

Prefab and modular buildings are constructed off-site, in a controlled environment, using durable materials and designed to meet the same codes, standards and requirements as conventionally built facilities – but with the advantage of a much faster construction time. ABC Total Precast Systems can substantially reduce construction project timelines, shorten funding periods, and produce a quicker return on investment all while offering an unlimited array of aesthetics finishes.
