PRECAST CONCRETE: PRECISION ENGINEERING FOR CIRCULAR STAIR TREADS

The Ft. Worth Arena has circular stairs leading to the entry level as shown in the image below. The AAS team custom fabricated the stone pieces using wet-pour architectural precast concrete to realize the design vision of concentric circular pattern.

  • The AAS team developed custom molds for unique radial shape of the stone pieces required for stair treads at every step/level.
  • The molds design included the circular grooves required on each stone piece.
  • The shape, size and tolerance for each stone piece was confirmed in the design phase using CAD drawings.
  • The project team provided detailed settings plan that identified position of every stone piece.

The in-house color lab developed batch mixes to coordinate color of the precast concrete panels with the dry vibrant-tamp cast stone, and GFRC panels used on the exterior façade & surrounding support buildings of the arena.

Detailed engineering enabled stair treads design to dissolve with the overall end user experience.

DESIGN ASSIST, CONSTRUCTION ASSIST FOR PROJECT SUCCESS


Advanced Architectural Stone (AAS – formerly ACS) has well developed system to design and manufacture products that are customized for every project.

The accuracy and precision of the stone panels, along with ability to realize any complex shape or intricate design details enables designers to create high-end design whether that is for monolithic stone veneers, architectural stone cladding, modular architectural columns, custom signage, or other unique branding/cultural icons on exterior facades of buildings.

The AAS team has developed methodology to review design schematics and collaborate closely with contractor, or architect for the project.

The AAS system is designed for project specific focus, integrating required installation support in the design of stone panels as well.

See in this video project examples of the AAS design assist, construction assist to architects, general contractors and masonry contractors.
