ACI Ceramic Pre-Cast Building Systems
“Life Safety, Asset Protection, & Sustainability”
ACI Ceramic Pre-Cast
The light weight ceramic precast composite panel proprietary assembly processes have unique benefits and applications that provide significant structural strength characteristics and sustainable modular solution for fast developing mid-rise and hi-rise urban communities. Ceramic composite panel infrastructure technology provides featured improvement to public safety and capacity to be implemented in less energy dependent Net Zero communities. Thus, contributing to the creation of communities that operate on significantly lower carbon foots prints and require less energy for building operations. The system features high-performance fire ratings (ASTM-E119-12) matched with high thermal values. The Thin shell light weight design of the precast building system raises the bar in structural performance testing at significantly high strength to weight ratios. The composite panel provides a high-performance technology at a low-cost due to novel efficient product manufacturing assembly methods, allowing for a technology that is economically competitive with current building technologies available on the market. In addition, the panels are wall, floor, and roof assemblies that interface in complete enclosure as an erector set allowing for significant gravity loads, high wind loads, seismic movements, and high moisture exposure without deterioration of the structure. The composite building systems meet and exceed the requirements set forth by international building codes.
Two landmark projects were completed in Raleigh-Durham, NC that serve as case studies where the panels were successfully implemented. The technology was selected by the architect through material selection and specification, 3rd party engineer designed engineered shop drawings, and approved for construction process installation by local city officials.

ACI Ceramic Pre-Cast Design Process
All ACI Ceramic Pre-cast panel shop drawings and connections are designed using BIM Software programs. This allows for designers to 3D map all members and materials implemented in the fabrication process. The detailed modeling program provides a high level of confidence as well as a transparent design network with architects, engineers, general contractors, erectors, and fabricators. In addition, all panel shop drawings for construction are sealed by US Professional Engineers and approved by the Project Architect prior to the start of panel fabrication. The prefabrication design process contributes to a productive and accelerated construction process through the project life cycle.
