Wires or mechanical anchors can be designed for use suspended from the hollowcore plank to support suspended ceilings, electrical conduits, plumbing or mechanical equipment. Coring of the hollowcore planks if required should occur in the middle 1/3″ of void. Void locations and quantity differ depending on the hollowcore depth cross section.
Parking structures are vital for the performance of hotels, office buildings, universities, stadiums, restaurants, and apartment complexes. Owners, architects, and engineers can use Cast-In-Place (CIP) or precast structures which have similar finished outcomes but very different designs and installations. Precast designs allow for open drive aisles that improve the garage driving experience and are erected much faster, as the concrete can cure offsite in a controlled environment.
