Two Options of Concrete Construction. 1) Cast off-site (Pre-cast). Components are built prior to installation, transported to the project and assembled around the existing jobsite. 2) Cast on-site (Site-cast). Labor, materials and equipment are brought to the site and constructed in-place. Example of elements that must be done on-site are, - Drilled shafts and pile caps (driven piles are cast off-site); - Footings (spread and continuous or strip footings); - Slabs-on-grade; - Slab toppings, which are often pre-cast; - Elements too large or heavy to transport, such as long beams and columns; - Irregular or special elements; - Structures requiring full structural continuity, that is, cast monolithically. Types of Concrete Elements. Each of the following will be treated separately: - Slab-on-grade, - Columns, - Walls, - Floor slabs and roof slabs, and - Other (stairs, cladding panels, etc.).
