Post-Tension Concrete Structure Demolition - Brandenburg

Demolition of post-tensioned concrete structures presents the contractor with unique issues. Post-tensioned concrete is accomplished by tension-ing high strength steel cables within the concrete mass. This method is achieved in a process where metal or plastic tubes which contain loose tensioning cables or rods are cast into the concrete.
