AltusGroup is a partnership of precast concrete manufacturers dedicated to innovative and sustainable technologies. The group operates under the concept of co-opetition where the members cooperate to develop breakthrough products and approaches, then compete for projects where they are applied. The growing organization was founded in 2003 and features 17 members across North America as of January 2014.

AltusGroup members exclusively offer CarbonCast technology for exterior walls
for commercial and institutional buildings and double tees for parking
garages. CarbonCast products feature C-GRID carbon fiber grid as a shear
connector and reinforcing material. CarbonCast Enclosure System projects
offer continuous insulation through the use of C-GRID as a wythe connector to
provide excellent thermal efficiency and energy savings. Wall panels can also
be thinner and lighter because of reduced raw material usage. Similarly, the
use of C-GRID as a flange reinforcement in CarbonCast Double Tees as a
replacement for welded wire mesh eliminates the possibility of corrosion. As
a result, precasters can use 8 percent less concrete in each double tee while
owners can eliminate the use of sealers and other chemicals intended to
combat corrosion.
