Pre-cast concrete construction projects are becoming more popular in India. Because of the requirements for build-ability, pre-cast construction has currently been adopted for infrastructure projects and urban transportation. Right now, even the quality delivery of project-specific pre-cast construction is required. The fastest-growing demand in the built environment in the dwelling and office segments suggests that general pre-cast can also advance. With a few case studies involving the author, the current study covers the planning facets of such pre-cast construction in the General Pre-cast scenario.
