Greater Design Flexibility

Post-tensioned concrete has proven to be a preferred method of construction for commercial and office buildings, residential apartments, high-rise condominiums, parking structures, and mixed-use facilities such as hotels. Developers and owners who select post-tensioning benefit from longer, thinner slabs, which results in greater design flexibility as the number of columns is reduced. Further, post-tensioning requires less reinforcing steel to achieve the same strength as well as smaller shear walls and column sizes. This results in more durable, lighter structures with long, clear spans.
