With the use of BauGrid WRG, dimensional tolerances are just ± 1/8", significantly improved over conventional reinforcement.  This eliminates corkscrewing of the cages, reducing crane timeDecreased congestion allows for improved concrete placement, and less time on the job for electrical and plumbing sub-contractors.

On the 42-story St. Regis Museum project in San Francisco (structure on right of photo), one BauGrid Welded Reinforcement Grid (BauGrid WRG)  replaced 32 hoops and cross ties.  Construction time was reduced from one floor every seven days to one floor every 4 days.  Based on his experience with St. Regis, rebar sub-contractor RPS (Tracy, CA) Division Supervisor Boyd Kelly has just received approval to use BauGrid WRG for two projects in San Francisco, a 47-story and a 24-story, based on his estimate of one floor constructed every 3 days.  He estimates that with the use of BauGrid WRG, the building owners will save approximately $1.5 million.  The structure on the left, the 39-story Paramount building, also used the BauGrid WRG reinforcement system.  It is the tallest precast concrete structure ever built in a region of highest seismicity.


All of these improvements are achieved while improving the seismic performance of the structure.  Click here for more info.
