West Park Elementary School


The highly ornate architectural precast makes this elementary school project more unique. The finish on this project consisted of a combination of acid etch, exposed aggregate and thin brick. There were also areas on the interior corridor with integral color dual finished precast. Another notable aesthetic factor was the ‘Grade A’ finish achieved on the painted interior walls.

A portion of this project included a high wind gymnasium with double tee roof panels. The common practice of precast storm shelter design reinforces PCI’s slogan that ‘precast saves lives’.

The contractor noted how well the install process went. They were also complementary for the engineering fixes created by Enterprise Precast Concrete’s team to overcome the problems resulting from precast embed locations being incorrectly placed by the cast-in-place contractor, specifically noting “There were some clever field modifications to make these work. Everyone was on board, working together as a team to solve any problems.”
