We can think of the phrase structural precast concrete as a nifty umbrella term for what is really a wide variety of concrete applications.
In its broadest sense, structural precast concrete is any concrete made from precast forms that contributes to the structural integrity of a product.
If we look a bit closer, however, we find that structural precast concrete refers to each of the products themselves, too. These can include items drawn from a fairly long list of precast forms. It includes catch basins, manholes, various vault structures, and three-sided bridges, to name just a few.
These are all conceived, designed, engineered, and produced with the utmost care and attention to detail at Columbia Precast Products. Our line of high-quality and durable structural precast concrete makes up a significant portion of the concrete products and buried infrastructure that dots the region.
Plus, we’re proud to say that we are the first precast concrete plant in the buried infrastructure industry to earn the coveted SMaRT certification. In fact, our buried pipeline products scored a “Platinum” designation. That means you can rely on us to produce our concrete using natural materials. It also means our concrete has a long lifecycle and retains its chemically inert properties.
Let’s Build Something Together!
For companies interested in partnering with us — welcome! Our leadership in the structural precast concrete industry and our SMaRT certification mean we’re equipped to deliver for both the economy and the environment.
Many of our Pacific Northwest colleagues in the contracting and building industries rely on us to help them secure city contracts when they bid for projects. Our professional and environmental bona fides will put you at the head of the line when working on these bids.
Everybody has a stake in keeping the economy growing and the rivers flowing. That’s why we place such an emphasis on our eco-friendly business practices. It’s also why we staff our facility with only the most experienced and expert craftspeople. They make up the heart of the art and science of designing, producing, and delivering structural precast concrete.
Local Business, Local Focus
Another aspect of partnering with Columbia for all your structural precast concrete needs: You’ll be buying local and buying American-made products. The money you spend goes directly into the local economy. Furthermore, the concrete forms we design and deliver are used throughout the region for all kinds of buried infrastructure and concrete construction products.
Since we’re local, we’re already a step ahead. Consider the Surface Transportation Assistance Act of 1982. It contains a “Buy America” section that rewards and encourages the purchase of American products. So many government projects require companies to use domestically manufactured items. When you work with Columbia Precast Products, you can be sure that you’re getting the highest quality, American-made concrete available anywhere.
