Building personal residences like apartments requires specific solutions that you’ll get when you use precast concrete. The material provides a wide range of benefits, from durability to energy efficiency to longevity. The process of creating precast concrete also saves you time and money because it allows site preparation to take place while the precast concrete is concurrently produced off-site. You won’t have to wait until the site is ready as you would with most other building materials.

At Nitterhouse Concrete Products, we offer custom solutions for your precast concrete apartments. And as a single-source precast provider, we will assist you throughout the entire precast design process.

Apartment buildings are meant to provide residents with comfort and security. Because of its sturdiness, durability and versatility, precast concrete is one of the most reliable building materials you can choose. It offers many benefits that are both unique and essential for an apartment environment, including:

  • Structural integrity and efficiency: Precast concrete is specifically designed to support heavy loads, which is essential for apartment buildings that house many people as well as furniture and other personal items. As a load-bearing material, precast concrete can also reduce the need and size of other structural components for enhanced building efficiency. For example, a precast concrete floor apartment can span further and carry heavier loads than other floor systems.
  • Weather-resistant: If your apartment buildings are located in an area that is susceptible to extreme weather, precast concrete is an ideal choice. Precast concrete can withstand water, flood and wind damage, which means you can count on it to be reliable and resilient during storms.  Its resistance to water damage also decreases the risk of mold developing in the building.
  • Thermal efficiency: Effective temperature control in an apartment building is crucial to the comfort of residents as well as cost savings on utilities. Precast concrete is a thermally efficient material with cast-in insulation, so it retains heat on the interior during the winter months and keeps heat out during the summer months to reduce your peak heating and cooling loads.
  • Fire-resistant: With the number of people, appliances, electronics and other variables you find in apartment buildings, there are likely to be potential fire hazards. Because precast concrete is naturally fire-resistant, it will help prevent fires from spreading so major damage can be avoided.
  • Sound deadening: The more people your apartment building can house, the more noise there will be. And if your apartment building is located in a city or by a major roadway, external sounds can be a factor as well. The density of precast concrete makes it an excellent sound attenuation material that is more effective at reducing noise than other building materials. With a concrete wall apartment, you can create the quiet, private environment that potential residents are looking for.
  • Pest-resistant: Buildings made with organic materials like wood attract pests such as termites and mice who make the material their home or their dinner. Precast concrete is so dense that bugs and rodents can’t chew on it or burrow into it, making it a naturally pest-resistant material.
