Tindall innovation puts manufacturing construction in motion in record time.

Precast concrete provides the edge needed to build manufacturing facilities faster and more efficiently, with greater durability and versatility.

The Tindall Precast Advantage

Precast provides much-needed design flexibility for manufacturing construction.

Tindall’s precast solutions for manufacturing construction cover a broad and varied range of requirements. Precast, prestressed framing systems are exceptionally efficient, providing long, clear spans and supporting heavy loads. Precast projects also reach completion faster and more economically than steel or cast-in-place. Partnering with Tindall early in the conceptual phase allows our expert team of in-house engineers to generate the most economical and high-performance precast building solutions.

Advantages of precast:

  • Superior framing technology optimizes span and load-bearing capabilities.
  • Precast concrete accommodates heavy loads more economically than steel.
  • Precast, prestressed concrete framing systems facilitate cleanliness and meet federal government standards for food processing facility design and construction.
  • Naturally bacteria-, mildew-, and stain-resistant, precast meets USDA Standards for Class “A” surface finishes.
  • Precast concrete is sustainable, providing energy efficiency and resilience following natural and man-made disasters
  • The mass of precast concrete provides an enhanced degree of thermal efficiency. Additionally, the presence of insulated concrete wall panels results in reduced energy consumption.
  • Precast buildings and facilities outlive steels structures due to their inherent strength, durability, and moisture control — all beneficial to food processing plant construction.
  • To meet cold storage requirements, precast structures can include insulated concrete panels with very high insulation.
  • Tindall bulb tees provide clear roof spans of more than 90 feet while supporting suspended loads beneath and heavy equipment loads above.
  • Elements exposed to public view that need architectural enhancement can include insulated wall panels with custom colored concrete mix, brick, form liner, and exposed aggregate finishes.

Precast Project Profiles

Sierra Nevada Brewery

Mills River, NC

Despite record rainfall that would have brought other construction methods to a halt, Tindall completed this Asheville brewery’s construction on schedule, creating eight total precast structures and over 1,000 components with a variety of aesthetics.


Sanderson Farms, Inc. — Processing Plant

Palestine, TX

Tindall’s Texas Division was the single source for design, fabrication, and erection of this complex precast building project. The new construction spans across 170,000 square feet and includes double tees supporting hanging conveyor belts and miles of piping.


Moss Point Plant

Moss Point, MS

To accommodate very poor soil conditions in Mississippi, Tindall designed this precast concrete structure with a light gauge steel roof supported by 120-ft. span prestressed girders connected to precast support columns to form a semi-rigid frame.

General Mills Food Processing

Covington, GA

Precast, prestressed concrete framing systems promote cleanliness and help achieve federal government standards placed upon food processing facility design and construction.


Asheboro, NC

For this food processing facility in North Carolina, Tindall developed a complex and creative total precast system to support the very heavy floor loads and meet stringent USDA requirements.

Bahlsen Foods

Cary, NC

The advantages of concrete and precast in food preparations and processing facilities include being naturally bacteria-, mildew- and stain-resistant, and complying with USDA & FDA Standards.

Stone Brewing

Richmond, VA

Tindall manufactured 79,000 square feet of insulated precast cladding panels that took only three weeks to erect. These sustainable concrete panels contributed to the project’s goal of achieving LEED Silver certification while also creating architectural appeal.

BMW LC-1 Expansion Egress Pedestrian Tunnel

Spartanburg, SC

Tindall designed, manufactured, and delivered a 12' wide x 8' tall pedestrian tunnel in specialized 4-sided sections that allows safe egress from the plant to the parking lot.
