Presence simplifies selection and inclusion of high-performance precast walls in specs
BETHLEHEM, Pa. (July 16, 2014)—Specifications for CarbonCast Enclosure Systems from AltusGroup, a North American network of 17 precast concrete manufacturers, are now available on SpecLink-E, a sophisticated master guide specification system subscribed to by architects, engineers, and specification writers nationwide. CarbonCast High Performance Insulated Wall Panels and CarbonCast Insulated Architectural Cladding are both featured on the site.
SpecLink-E offers built-in intelligence designed to help architects and spec writers dramatically speed up editing tasks and reduce specification production time while minimizing errors and omissions. Combined with the industry’s most comprehensive and up-to-date master database, SpecLink-E enables the team to accelerate specification development with unsurpassed accuracy and integrity.
In addition to conventional construction specifications, SpecLink-E includes Design Criteria for buildings (formerly PerSpective, the industry’s first and only commercially available database of performance-based specifications). Design criteria are used during the early building design stages and for projects delivered via the design-build method.
The SpecLink-E software includes many productivity tools, including the ability to create automatic administrative reports, such as submittal requirements, useful during construction administration. It is sold in both independent, stand-alone modules (catalogs) or as a fully-functional interactive group.
Architects and specification writers who do not subscribe to SpecLink-E can download sample specifications for CarbonCast products at the AltusGroup website, altusprecast.com. Or they may contact their regional AltusGroup manufacturing partner for CarbonCast® precast product and technical assistance.
More than 800 commercial building structures have been installed with CarbonCast totaling more than 30 million square-feet of precast surface area.
The first-ever international partnership of precast companies, AltusGroup was founded in 2003 to develop, manufacture and market precast innovations such as the award-winning CarbonCast® line of products featuring C-GRID carbon fiber grid reinforcing. With more than two dozen structural and architectural locations in the United States, the 17 North American and three international AltusGroup companies have an unparalleled network of manufacturing plants, technical staff and sales personnel to ensure architects, engineers and contractors get the help they need—and the quality and performance they expect—when they select CarbonCast products.
