Abstract: This paper discusses the development of three ultra high performance concrete (UHPC) rainscreen façade projects with different designs. The first project describes a large-scale production of panels with both custom and flat finishing; the second project concerns both simple and three dimensional panels for application on the eyebrow section of the building. The third project utilizes a flat panel system with highly customized, textured patterns. Because it becomes very difficult to maintain finish color and consistency across each panel processed at an industrial scale, techniques for casting are discussed in the context of each of these three projects.
