from the client
“Nitterhouse Concrete had to replicate the Spanish mission-style architecture to match the existing structures on this campus. In order to do so, a key innovation was developed for this project with the use of bolted-on precast concrete arches. The arches were produced in pieces that could be easily shipped to the site, then bolted and welded to the spandrels. As a result, a fully rounded arch spandrel was achieved at a fraction of the cost of having to produce and erect the arched spandrels as one composite unit. Precast concrete was the perfect choice to create the fluid rounded shape.”
