Using a ‘cast on-site’ method at ground level allows the trades to start work on a finished slab. This minimizes logistical issues and allows the building envelope to be erected earlier thus reducing the total construction time.  Because the floor slab is placed first, other trades can work sooner and safer from a smooth concrete surface, which saves time and money. The “SiteCast process” offers savings that extend beyond the panel construction timeframe.
