Couche-Tard convenience stores would like to reduce the construction time of each convenience store by several weeks. By choosing the Total Concept Concrete Precast System, this was made possible. Regardless of the outside temperature, the installation of the concrete elements continues to take place. The panels come from the factories of Saramac and Schokbeton and are already equipped with the insulation as well as the electrical boxes and other wall insertions.
The elements are assembled by welding and/or mortar and temporarily held in place on a precast slab.
No separate or additional structure is required. Concrete panels have a dual role:
1. Structural: they support the structural loads and transfer them to the foundation;
2. Architectural: they can incorporate all required finishes as well as thermal insulation. In this case, these are brick and fake stone finishes.
