Since Fabcon’s first plant began operation in 1971, we’ve strived to be proficient in all things precast. Now, almost 50 years later, we are a leading force and industry innovator making us uniquely qualified to provide service to precast buildings regardless of how long they’ve been in use. We ensure you get all of your needs met in one place; Fabcon is your one-stop shop for all things precast.
Structural precast is a highly engineered and intricate product, and nobody knows it better than we do. What we’re trying to say is that we know precast inside and out—literally. And because of that, Fabcon recently established our Work to Existing (W2E) division. Its purpose is to assist building owners with repairs or modifications to their precast facilities. Our W2E division means that adaptation and modification are great alternatives to a full-scale move. Fabcon can keep your precast building looking as great as it performs—regardless of who manufactured the original panels.
Sure, precast buildings are tough, but they often lead physically trying lives. The life of a Fabcon building may be 30, 40, or even 50 years, and the equipment the buildings house is just as rugged. Precast facilities stand up to time, severe weather, and face off against skid steers, semi-trailers, and snow removal equipment. Once cosmetic issues begin to arise, W2E can address them and make sure the blemishes don’t turn into something far worse.
OUR PRECAST REPAIR TECHNICIANS ARE GIFTED ARTISTS WITH AN AMAZING ABILITY TO MATCH TEXTURES & COLORS AND KEEP YOUR FACILITY LOOKING UP-TO-DATE AND READY FOR BUSINESS.Fabcon can minimize or even erase the visible damage. A run-down facility is bad for your reputation; your building should represent your brand. Our precast repair technicians are gifted artists with an amazing ability to match textures and colors and keep your facility looking up-to-date and ready for business. Plus, Fabcon delivers the same service from Maine to Texas. So no matter where you are, our dedicated team can help make and maintain your vision.
In addition to decades in harsh climates, it’s common for precast buildings to be repurposed—churches become car dealerships, warehouses become office buildings—W2E can help with the transition. Cutting a hole in a structural wall might sound straightforward. It’s not. Because precast panels are highly engineered, a window cannot simply be cut into them; doing so would compromise the structural integrity of the building and make for unsafe working conditions. Adding or removing dock doors, daylighting features, and man doors, for example, requires the skills of an engineer who understands the structural components of precast… and a cutting crew with surgical skills.
Our engineering and field crews are uniquely qualified to make safe, attractive modifications to any precast structure’s envelope. Many of our engineers, project managers, and field personnel have worked with Fabcon for over 20 years, making them the best at what they do. Our expertise makes us the most cost-effective choice for your project. Tasks that normally take several companies to complete, Fabcon can do all in one place.

The best part is that it’s never too late to work with the best of the best. If your precast building isn’t a Fabcon building, no worries! W2E works on any precast structure, even if you don’t know whose panels were used in the original construction of your building. W2E Business Unit Manager Tyson Intile stated, “It happens a lot that people don’t know how their buildings were built. That’s not an obstacle for us at all—we’ll figure it all out and get the job done!”
It’s time to make the most out of what you already own. With us, you can avoid the work interruptions and complications of relocating by expanding, modifying, or repairing your current facility instead. Fabcon is your one-stop precast shop… and if you can dream it, we can do it.
