Earlier this week, senior management provided Prairie View A&M's engineering undergraduates a tour of our facilities. Dr. Ramalingam coordinated a tour for his students in his reinforced concrete class. In addition, Prairie View Mayor David Allen joined to represent the city. The group came to get some hands on experience in seeing how piece tickets are drawn and how pieces are made, after they learned the theories behind reinforcing concrete.
The tour covered our entirety of our outside facilities including our pouring beds, batch plant, aggregate storage, welding shop, QC lab, and carpentry shop. During the tour the entire production of a precast/prestressed concrete was displayed, along with general ideas behind the advantages that precast gives.
Nothing beats hands on experience. That is why tours like this are just one of the many things that East Texas Precast loves to do to help inform and educate the future of the construction community in Texas. If you or anyone you know would like a tour of East Texas Precast, feel free to contact our office at (281)-463-0654
