The front of the store features precast column covers to match the formliner finish on the wall panels.

Project: Erhardt Construction Office Addition

Erhardt Construction had four objectives in mind when designing their new office - matching an existing cast-in-place building, providing energy efficiency, ensuring the ability of future vertical  expansion, and meeting a tough construction schedule. All of these factors led Erhardt to Kerkstra Precast. “We selected Kerkstra Precast and their prefabricated KEEP Panel System for our building addition. It offered the best solution to meet all of our challenges. Kerkstra worked closely with us to provide the exact match to our existing cast-in-place concrete walls, capturing all of the design details and color,” Joe Erhardt, President - Erhardt Construction. This project included just over 3000sqft of insulated composite wall panels and just over 3000sqft of 12” hollowcore roof plank. The walls and roof were erected in less than 5 days, exceeding the expectations of the customer.

Project: Sky Lofts Market Square

This six story loft-style condominium, located within walking distance of downtown Royal Oak, Michigan consists of 154,000 square feet of 8” and 12” hollowcore plank. The cantilevered balconies were produced with solid, broomed panels tapered from 7” to 8”. The balconies cantilevered 6’ off the building and were connected back to the precast hollowcore. Dealing with the elements of winter construction, precast on a structural steel frame proved to be the right choice. “Precast proved to be the most economical design solution for this loft condominium. The project suffered no delays during inclement weather and allowed for the design feature of cantilevered balcony’s without unusual premiums,” Bill Korte – Frank Rewold and Son Inc.

Project: Little River Casino Resort

The Little River Casino Resort was originally designed with masonry. With an extremely tight schedule and a January construction start, along with the many other advantages of precast concrete, the construction team decided precast would be the system of choice. The hotel features 44,159 sq ft of hollowcore floor plank, 22,179 sq ft of 8: solid demising walls, elevator, stair-shaft walls, and precast balcony slabs. "With the kind of winter conditions we have in Northern Michigan, we needed to be able to work regardless of the weather conditions. Using precast allowed us to do just that," Scott Potter - The Christman Co.
