Given that concrete is the most-produced synthetic material in the world, it makes sense to focus on the green attributes it can offer. To achieve this, the Concrete Sustainability Hub (CSH) was created at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
Architectural precast concrete is a versatile, durable, economical and practical solution to most building and construction needs. However, it’s underutilized in today’s $470 billion-plus above-ground construction market. Architectural precast represents only 0.3 percent of this market, which suggests huge growth opportunities.
