Precast Concrete Wall Panels

Looking for a precast concrete panels manufacturer? Look no further. Leesburg Concrete Company has been in the precast concrete industry since 1983. We take great pride in our work and enjoy working with general contractors, architects, and building owners in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina and other states along the east coast. In our PCI Certified plant, we manufacture traditional architectural precast concrete wall panels, structural cladding, and Slenderwall® by EasiSet.

Architectural Precast Concrete Wall Panels

Architects love architectural precast concrete wall panels because they add to a structure’s architectural appearance. With endless options for architectural design creativity, architectural precast wall panels can be used on both interior and exterior walls. They can be cast in any size, texture, shape, or color. When manufacturing architectural precast wall panels we adhere to PCI's strict standards with regard to dimensional tolerance, color consistency, and finish variations.

Manufactured in our Leesburg, Florida plant, our architectural precast panels and cladding provide a strong, durable facade. They stand up to the harshest weather, rain, and wind and continue to look good year after year. 

Architectural precast cladding from Leesburg Concrete offers innovative design solutions for your construction project. We work closely with our customers to design and engineer customized, architectural precast cladding that fulfills their design ideas and meets their technical requirements. Our cladding products offer an economical solution with limitless choices of textures, shapes, and integral colors.

Because our products are poured in our 18,000 square foot facility, we can pour any size product. And because the facility is climate-controlled we deliver the highest quality concrete products and never have weather delays. What that means to you is your product is delivered on time and on budget.

The Value of Precast Concrete Wall Panels and Cladding

Decorative precast concrete panels and cladding bring added value to your construction project. It is ideal for projects where complex designs or geometry is required, access is limited, or accelerated construction time is desired. But there are other benefits. Decorative precast concrete panels make sense because the product is:

  • sustainable
  • energy efficient
  • non-combustible
  • easily installed
  • provides a fire block
  • offers acoustic benefits,
  • installed quickly compared to on-site construction, and
  • requires little maintenance.

Shown to the right is a custom decorative concrete panel made for Mayport Naval Station. It is comprised of four different finishes, with three different integral colors. The final panels weighed in at about 45,000 pounds each.

Precast Concrete Panels Cost

Precast concrete panels always cost less than site-poured concrete. An article in the Journal of Construction Engineering documented a 2016 research project that compared the cost of precast concrete to pouring concrete on-site. The results showed that precast concrete panels reduced construction costs by an average of 23%. The article further addressed the fact that precast concrete reduces on-site laborers, generates less waste, less volume of building materials, and increases environmental and construction site cleanliness.

To give you an exact cost of precast concrete panels we need to know the size of the structure, the type of finish you want, whether we can use standard molds or need to create custom molds, and a few other details. But, we are more than happy to talk with you to estimate a price and see if precast concrete panels make sense for your project.

Precast concrete reduces on-site laborers, generates less waste, less volume of building materials, and increases environmental and construction site cleanliness... Precast concrete panels reduce construction costs by 23%.

Precast Concrete Panels Get Construction Projects Done Faster

With precast concrete panels, there is no downtime waiting for concrete to dry. Precast concrete panels are poured off site and delivered at the exact time and in the sequence you request. This allows your project to continue moving and be completed faster.

And installation is as easy as...

What is PCI Certification?

PCI Certified is a recognized standard within the precast concrete industry. As a PCI certified plant, we have PCI Certified personnel on staff and follow the rigorous compliance standards of the Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute. Each year PCI performs two unannounced audits of our plant. These audits are done by third-party engineers who ensure our precast concrete products are manufactured to the standards published in the PCI quality-control manuals. Additionally, they inspect random products to their project specifications to ensure they meet the product's design intent and production criteria.

Slenderwall®

As an exterior cladding wall panel system with great design flexibility, Slenderwall® reduces structural costs and on-site trades. It is designed to be lightweight (about 30 lbs. per square foot compared to approximately 85 lbs. for traditional heavy architectural precast), reducing foundation and superstructure requirements and reducing shipping and installation costs.  Read More
