Pharmaceutical companies are charged with developing and distributing medicines that allow patients to live longer, healthier, and more productive lives. Therefore, it is essential that the buildings in which they operate are efficient and durable, and that any downtime associated with maintenance
configurations of post-tensioned tendons
Zuming Xia, Ph.D., P.E.
When designing for thinner floors, using post-tensioning to resist loads and deflections provides a more optimal solution than conventionally reinforced floors. This fact is primarily due to the load-balancing effect of the draped post-tensioned tendons.

Designers have a multitude of choices in building design, especially in the selection of a flooring framing system. Post-tensioned flooring systems offer a great deal of flexibility, and when properly designed, can significantly impact the cost of materials and speed of construction. Typical

For more than 40 years, post-tensioned concrete has been used in buildings. It is widely accepted by structural engineers for offices, parking garages, condominiums and apartments.
