Client Program

Graduate students at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee School of Architecture and Urban Planning recently exhibited their final freshwater innovation design clusters for review to school faculty members, industry leaders, professional architects and the building community. The clusters were a part of a three-year design project aimed at developing innovative ways to conserve water and energy by grouping organizations of various backgrounds near one another in urban environments.

Why i chose precast for the project

Gil Snyder, Associate Dean of Architecture and Urban Planning, says the Spancrete® Studio program is great for teaching students advanced thinking and problem-solving skills. “The Spancrete® Studio is the first of its kind in architectural schools, and it really allows students to see how far they can push the limits of architectural design. The program has been such a success that we are now working with the Precast / Prestressed Concrete Institute and have created similar studios across the country.”
