Architectural precast concrete walls: NH15-132/5-2002E-PDF

"The purpose of this Guide is to summarize current information on architectural precast concrete and to provide designers with an understanding of this construction product illustrating recommended design details and site practices. The Guide is organized to take the user from a discussion of the characteristics of architectural precast concrete, through a presentation on the fundamentals of building envelope performance, to best practice assemblies, details and specifications. The final two chapters deal with quality assurance during the design, fabrication and erection process, and maintenance and renewal of the architectural precast during its service life."--p. 3.
