26 • April 2018 www.concreteproducts.com NEWS SCOPE PRECAST Precast/prestressed producer and design/build specialist Clark Pacific, West Sacramento, Calif., has launched CP Campus Housing, a set of integrated structural and façade components that maximize flexibility for Type I dormitory or apartment projects, and enable more owners and designers to leverage off-site construction for cost and schedule savings plus reduced campus disruption. "Traditionally, each new campus housing project is approached as completely new, yet when you compare projects side by side, there is very little variance in the structure and layout," says Clark Pacific Director of Corporate Development Roy Griffith. "With CP Campus Housing, our custom manufactured systems are designed to work together to provide a cost competitive and durable building with minimal site disruption." In addition to a set of standardized components, CP Campus Hous- ing also includes the Collaborative Design Interface, a rapid design tool that leverages those components and provides schematic stu- dent housing designs. With a prefabricated structural design in hand, designers can then focus on building aesthetics and unique project needs that add value. "Owners tell us that they want to use more prefabrication and off- site construction in their projects but don't know where to begin," notes Griffith. "CP Campus Housing makes it easy to start designing for prefabrication and brings prefabricated campus housing projects to market in less time, with less risk and with greater cost certainty." Clark Pacific programs a robust design tool for a hot market Clark Pacific equips CP Campus Housing with standard components: structural precast and integrated enclosure framed panel with pre- installed windows; internal structural frame; three different pre- fabricated and factory-topped slabs to accommodate mechanical, electrical and plumbing; plus, provisions for floor-to-floor heights equivalent to other systems. While owners and design teams are aware of its benefits, he adds, many design-build teams are not familiar with designing for prefabrication. By standardizing on the structural and integrated façade components and simplifying the approach to prefabricated student housing, CP Campus Housing accelerates the learning curve for designers who are unfamiliar with prefabrication and gives owners the advantage of a prefabricated structural design early in the proj- ect. — www.clarkpacific.com/solution/cp-campus-housing www.hydronix.com Tel: +1 231 439 5000 or email:enquiries@hydronix.com Our new sensor models retain the existing proven exterior design but have been updated internally for an even better performance • Accurate, consistent, real time moisture measurement • Digital technology with precise linear output • Easy to integrate into new or existing systems • Remote calibration and confi guration • Temperature stable Updated: Hydro-Mix for Concrete Mixers Updated: Hydro-Probe for Aggregate Bins Our Moisture Measurement is Better than Ever
