Celebrate Northeast Prestressed Products, LLC involvement in the rehabilitation of a historic Pennsylvania Structure, Coplay-Northampton Bridge, which is designed to achieve PennDOT’s goal of 100-year service life for bridges. Use of deck joints was minimized to the fullest extent possible, and the selection of prestressed concrete spliced girders will reduce maintenance needs and extend the service life compared to a steel structure.

- Earlier this summer Tindall Corporation launched T-SLAB™, an all-new, patented slab system that leverages the time-tested principles of Roman arch design and multiple concrete types to deliver a stronger, lighter, and more versatile slab. This groundbreaking product was designed to deliver all the advantages of the industry’s most effective building materials in a single, cost-effective, and 100% precast solution.

Shockey Precast posts two new parking project case studies. One of these, Reston Arboretum Parking Garage in Reston, VA may be small, but the project offered both big challenges and big successes for Shockey Precast and the Project Team. Precast was specified at the beginning of the design process to accommodate the project’s aggressive schedule and to realize DNC Architect’s unique vision for the garage’s exterior finish. To complement the adjacent Reston Arboretum office building, which features an exterior that includes several shades of taupe, the architect specified the darkest shade of taupe Shockey Precast was able to produce. To achieve the desired finish and color, we used a dark taupe-colored dye in the concrete mix for the architectural face. The result is an exterior finish that beautifully complements the original Reston Arboretum office building.
