Precaster Gate Precast
Completed 2013

A majority of the 275,000 square foot facility’s exterior facade on the east, west and south exposures features a pre-insulated, custom-designed precast concrete wall system. The precaster, Gate Precast worked with Beck Architecture to develop the precast concrete wall system. The design features a basket weave pattern in light buff with a medium sandblast finish created with custom elastomeric formliners by Architectural Polymers. The thermally-resistive precast concrete material is not only cost-effective and aesthetically pleasing; it provides an energy efficient solution that protects the structure from the harsh Texas sun.
