Advantages of Precast Concrete

Cornell University Student Housing by Shockey

Our clients choose precast concrete because of its numerous benefits. They choose Shockey Precast because we give every project the attention and care it deserves. Drawing from extensive experience, we partner with our clients to ensure that they get everything they need.

Shockey Precast offers design–assist and design–build services to help you get all the advantages of precast concrete. Here’s a look at some of those advantages and how precast concrete can benefit you during construction and throughout the life of the building.


One of the many advantages of precast concrete is its long life. Precast concrete saves on maintenance and operating costs thanks to its resistance to aging, abrasion, impact, weathering, and corrosion. Its optimized water/cement ratio, compaction, and curing in a controlled environment makes it highly durable.

Shockey Safety


Precast concrete creates a safe envelope that protects people and equipment, standing up to weather events, fire, and other disasters. Its strength and non-combustible nature make precast concrete a safer choice both during construction and when the building is in use.


Business owners, organizations, and communities often have specific aesthetic goals in mind. Precast concrete is highly customizable, with a variety of colors, textures, and finishes to choose from. Designers and architects can fine-tune precast concrete designs as needed, ensuring that the building is not only functional but also aesthetically pleasing.

Precast Aesthetics
PCI Certification Quality


Our PCI certification means our precast concrete is produced in a strictly controlled environment, reducing the risk of flaws and unwelcome surprises. It ensures that the products we produce are of the highest quality, both in terms of aesthetics and structure. PCI inspections focus on production processes and plant operation, minimizing the need for continuous inspections and reducing project costs.


Sustainability is a major advantage of precast concrete, both during construction and during the life of the building. As your partner in optimizing your project, we help reduce waste and save energy as your project is being built. We can also help design a structure that maximizes energy savings and minimizes operating costs. Precast concrete is the optimal material for energy savings, contributing to LEED® points in multiple ways. You can learn more about the energy and cost savings of precast concrete construction on the Sustainability page.
