Jörg Reymann, Managing Director of RATEC GmbH and Reymann Technik GmbH, spoke at the first "Modular, Prefab and Construction Tech Senate" in San Francisco about "State of the art 2D and 3D precast concrete production systems in residential building”. Starting off with the fundamental question "Why precast?", the objective was to understand the key advantages of precast concrete compared to other construction methods.
In the United States, but not only there, natural disasters, such as hurricanes, floods or earthquakes have shown that concrete buildings and especially precast concrete structures were more resistant to destruction.
Relying on his more than 25 years of experience, Jörg Reymann then gave an overview of current production methods and examples from the international environment with a focus on North America.
The event took place 9-10 October 2019 in San Francisco, CA, and aimed to create a premier destination for professionals working across the built environment to gain insights and experience first-hand the latest innovations and opportunities in modern methods of construction.
