We’ve long touted the great variety of products and applications available through the use of precast concrete. Our product line is filled with customizable pieces — some big, some small — that provide infrastructural support and architectural flourishes to all kinds of modern construction projects. This includes, of course, precast concrete hotel construction. Let’s examine this topic and see what we can learn about the state of the industry.
Hospitality.net published an opinion piece that provides a good overview of precast concrete in hotel construction. In it, contributing writer Lillian Connors lists some of the advantages of using precast forms in hotel projects. One section, in particular, is worth quoting in full.
“Precast concrete is, without a doubt, the best solution for large-scale construction projects due to its efficiency, structural safety, and durability,” Connors writes. “Compared to traditional concrete constructions, precast concrete is able to withstand significantly higher load bearings, thus eliminating the need for multiple support features and costly column construction within the interior of the building.”
Connors suggests that precast concrete in hotel construction allows for not only “an aesthetically appealing interior design” but also “substantial financial savings during the construction phase.”
Columbia Precast Products
The experts at Columbia Precast Products can confirm. Our own manufacturing processes focus on the production of vaults, sewer pipes, catch basins, traffic barriers, and more. Still, we recognize and applaud the ingenuity on display among manufacturers whose work appears as precast concrete hotel panels and other structural elements.
Regardless of their application, however, all precast concrete components provide advantages that other materials simply can’t match. More and more hotel owners and developers are beginning to recognize the advantages of precast concrete building construction processes.
This is true when we’re discussing hollow core plank wall panels that provide fire resistance and sound insulation. And it’s true when we’re talking about any of the concrete products manufactured by Columbia Precast Products for buried infrastructure support.
