Structural and thermal efficiency of precast concrete

Precast concrete sandwich panels (PCSP) are structurally and thermally efficient elements used for exterior walls in multi-unit residential, commercial, and warehouse buildings throughout the world. A typical PCSP consists of two precast reinforced concrete layers (called wythes) separated by a layer of insulation and connected with connectors which penetrate the insulation layer.
