Precast concrete products are important building components for Virginia’s construction industry. Precast concrete products are widely used in transportation, water, wastewater and storm water, and building construction projects.

Virginia’s precast products also tend to be procured from Virginia manufacturing sources in contrast to many competing construction products such as plastic and metal based construction products such as corrugated metal pipe that are often procured from Virginia based wholesale distributors but usually produced elsewhere in the U.S.

This report, conducted for the Precast Concrete Association of Virginia (PCAV), examines in greater details the characteristics of Virginia’s precast concrete manufacturing industry and
the contribution that the industry makes to the state economy. The report estimates the employment, output, and value added impacts of the industry as well as state and local tax revenue impacts.
