Kerkstra Precast’s hollowcore plank was featured in nine HBA Parade of Homes this past spring. Several of the homes included our multi-level garage systems while the others included our precast hollowcore plank porches.
This home included a precast hollowcore plank porch which allowed the otherwise wasted space below to be opened up and used as a mechanical room. Not only did this give the advantage of having a soundproof mechanical room, but also opened up more living space in the basement. Precast hollowcore plank porches work great for storage, root cellars or a safe room for the family and their valuables.
Featured in this home is a multi-level garage system. By setting the garage floor with precast hollowcore plank it allowed the homeowner extra storage below. He was also able to gain storage on the main level as it was easily within the design load to install a Bend Pak 9000lb 4 point hoist. He can raise a vehicle up and still pull another one in under it for stacked car storage.
