Eriksson Software, an affiliate of Eriksson Technologies that specializes in the development of software for the precast concrete industry with the goal of improving the design process through automation – has joined AltusGroup as an Innovation Partner.
As an Innovation Partner, Eriksson will collaborate with AltusGroup’s roster of 16 leading North American precasters to provide enhanced software solutions for the design and evaluation of CarbonCast High Performance Insulated Wall Panels and CarbonCast Insulated Architectural Cladding, as well as other precast-prestressed elements made by its users.
“The software experts at Eriksson have worked closely with engineers and designers at AltusGroup companies to expedite the design and modeling of walls with CarbonCast technology,” said John Carson, executive director of AltusGroup. “Eriksson calculations have been helpful in establishing engineering best practices for our products. It is only logical that we work even more closely to build on these successes and give our members increasingly powerful tools to design CarbonCast panels and enclosures.”
“Eriksson Wall is an advanced software engineering system for precast wall panel design. With it, you can quickly design and analyze load-bearing solid or insulated precast concrete wall panels and tied columns,” said Roy Eriksson, president of Eriksson Wall. “And considering that CarbonCast is one of the most advanced, economical sandwich wall panel designs on the market, deepening our relationship with AltusGroup makes perfect sense.”
AltusGroup’s Innovation Partners are among the concrete industry’s best-known suppliers and share AltusGroup’s collaborative approach to precast concrete innovation. They include ALP Supply, Master Builders Solutions, JVI Inc., CommandSuite, Kawneer, Lehigh White Cement, Graphic Concrete and Owens Corning.
The first-ever national partnership of precast companies dedicated to “innovation powered by collaboration,” AltusGroup challenges the brightest minds in precast to develop, speed and perfect technologies that improve the built environment.
Technology platforms include the award-winning CarbonCast® line of products featuring C-GRID carbon fiber grid reinforcing, ARCIS ultra-thin precast panels for rainscreens and other applications and Graphic Concrete for imparting permanent images, graphics and patters onto precast faces. The 16 AltusGroup North American precasters 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.
