In building Pensmore, Huff Construction was faced with the challenge of creating a 1" precast wall panels that would resist cracking and withstand the elements. After several months of testing various types of concrete designs, it was determined that the best configuration was a high strength concrete mix with a stainless Helix Steel dosage rate of 166 lb/yd3.
The Helix Steel reinforced panels have performed better than expected. Thus, Huff Construction, has now implemented Helix Steel in all of their precast designs, ranging from window and door surrounds, to interior trim and other architectural cladding.
