Morse Bros Joins AltusGroup as Producer Member, Expands Availability of CarbonCast Products in Western U.S.

Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) August 3, 2006

AltusGroup, Inc. (http://www.altusprecast.com) has further widened the availability of its breakthrough CarbonCast precast technology with the addition of Morse Bros Prestressed Group.

Morse Bros Prestress (http://www.morsebrosprestress.com), Harrisburg, Ore., produces architectural precast and/or prestressed concrete building cladding and framing components as well as moment frame beam/column components for buildings and elevated parking garages. The companys product line also includes prestressed bridge girders and components. Morse Bros serves Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Nevada and California from its plant in Oregons Willamette Valley.

Morse Bros joins The Shockey Precast Group, Blakeslee Precast, and Heldenfelds Enterprises, Inc., as precaster manufacturers who have joined AltusGroup during the past 12 months.

Expanding our national partnership of innovation-minded precasters is allowing us to offer the first truly national brand of precast concrete: CarbonCast, said John Carson, chairman of the AltusGroup marketing committee and director of business development for TechFab, LLC, AltusGroups carbon grid supplier. Morse Bros dramatically improves our presence in the western states, where architects have expressed interest in the weight, insulation and durability benefits that CarbonCast can provide.

CarbonCast is an innovative precast concrete technology that uses C-GRID — a non-corrosive, high-strength carbon fiber grid — as secondary reinforcing in architectural panels and as sheer reinforcing in insulated wall panels. Depending on the application, C-GRID allows thinner precast sections and can reduce the weight of architectural panels by up to 66 percent while offering significantly improved corrosion resistance, durability and insulation value. CarbonCast technology is also available in pretopped double tees and residential wall and foundation applications.

Acceptance of CarbonCast since its mid-2004 introduction has been rapid. More than 7 million square feet of products have been erected or sold to date, and millions more square feet of projects are in development.

About AltusGroup

AltusGroup, Inc. is a partnership of several of industrys largest precasters and C-GRID developer, TechFab LLC; it was formed to make CarbonCast technology and future innovations available throughout North America. CarbonCast is an innovative precast technology that uses conventional steel for primary reinforcing and C-GRID for secondary reinforcing and shear transfer. It provides long-term durability, lighter weight, finer finishes, improved insulating properties and better sustainability than traditional precast concrete.

Oldham County School Board Selects Amvic ICF Products as Dixie ICF Announces Completion of Another School Project

Crestwood, Kentucky (PRWEB) March 14, 2009

Dixie ICF, well-known throughout Kentucky and the surrounding region for their years of experience in building structures using Amvic Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF), is pleased to announce the completion of Crestwood Elementary School.

The 26,500 square foot structure integrates insulated concrete forms with conventional concrete masonry units (CMU). All exterior walls are constructed using ICF, while the interior walls use CMU and the floors are poured concrete. This fusion of materials posed its own challenges meaning that wall spaces had to be measured precisely to accommodate for the outcropping of concrete block to match up with the drywall on the ICF. The end result is a smooth, professionally finished surface.

“The strength of Amvic ICF (http://www.amvicsystem.com) has enabled us to achieve quicker build times resulting in a fast turnaround for the Oldham County School Board. The product strength was proven when we were able to pour over 5,000 forms with no pillowing, no blowouts and no additional work for other trades” says Tim Hamilton of Dixie ICF.

The speed of construction with ICF became evident when the crew of 7 ICF installers managed to stay ahead of a crew of 30 masons! Not only was the speed of construction a deciding factor for the Oldham County School Board, but they also chose Amvic ICF because it creates a stronger wall that is monolithic with no mortar joints. In an area where tornados are a concern, this element of safety was very important.

Amvic has continuously demonstrated excellence in the three key areas of ICF development: a strong interlock mechanism, unequalled foam density, and web design and spacing. All of these factors made Amvic (http://www.amvicsystem.com) the logical choice for constructing an educational building.

Some of the benefits of ICF use lend themselves particularly well in the Education Sector. Health and safety are always top of mind during any construction project, but particularly so when building a structure for children. With the mold and mildew resistance of insulated concrete forms as well as the fire resistance and structure integrity, Crestwood Elementary is a safe building that will be in use for decades. Keeping the bottom line in mind, choosing ICF means speed and ease of construction, long term energy efficiency and significantly lower maintenance costs. Finally, the impressive sound deadening properties of insulated concrete forms create a quiet and efficient learning environment. When all of these attributes are combined an Amvic ICF school truly produces a unique and special educational setting.

The decision to use insulated concrete forms was fully supported by the architect as experience showed that even during the uncertain temperature and weather of the winter months, ICF construction would carry on and maintain their schedule. This isn’t always the case when working with concrete block which can often be affected by weather.

If you have any questions about this ICF construction project, please contact Tim Hamilton at Dixie ICF at (502) 493-0711 or visit Amvic’s website at http://www.amvicsystem.com.
