Concrete is the material of choice for a host of new construction projects requiring tilt wall panels, industrial, commercial and warehouse flooring, residential slabs on grade and recreational surfaces. Each project has its own unique set of challenges, but all are faced with a need to minimize or eliminate fracturing. The best solution is post tensioning.
In dealing with existing concrete structures, the most common challenges are restoring cracked and deteriorated surfaces and, reinforcing slabs and columns to prevent future fractures. Restoration techniques are also ideal for strengthening structures to accommodate additional loading or to stabilize areas in which modifications or additions are to be made.
Whether new or existing, parking structures not only require a high degree of strength to handle vehicle loads, they must all incorporate barriers to protect pedestrians, and to prevent vehicles from making unplanned departures at inappropriate exit points. With respect to both construction and maintenance, barrier cable systems are the most cost effective means of dealing with vehicle impact and containing pedestrian movement through a parking structure.

The company consists of three divisions- Post-Tensioning, Restoration and Barrier Cable Systems- each with its own staff of design and implementation specialists.
