Precast Concrete Fences For Multi-Family Housing Project

Featured Image

Multi-family housing is on the rise with new developments appearing all over the nation. Over the last 10 years, construction spending in the multi-family housing segment has grown 18% leaving developers and contractors looking for options that will help aid in the reduction of spending while meeting the many demands required for a multi-family housing project. A common requirement for multi-family projects is fencing around the perimeter of these properties and providing adequate property security and aesthetics while controlling the annual maintenance costs has been a challenge for many developers and project managers. Hilltop Concrete's precast concrete fence systems offer developers, contractors, owners, and managers of multi-family facilities the perfect solution to meet the project's fencing needs.

Developers are constantly faced with making decisions on how to satisfy the needs of their property while meeting the demands placed upon them by cities to provide adequate security around their properties for their future residents and many cities will require full perimeter fencing around the complex for a variety of reasons. Our precast concrete fencing options provide security that is second to none and offers a sense of security that you just do not get from other fencing options. Unwanted persons are easily deterred by a precast concrete fence and unable to access the property without properly checking in at the front or unless they have been properly invited. Another reason why cities have these types of requirements is to provide privacy for their adjoining neighbors and it is the burden of the developer to determine the best solution for their property and the future owner of the property. Because we offer a variety of patterns, developers are able to maintain an aesthetic that is sure to please residents on both sides of the fence and our systems can be configured in various heights, so adjoining neighbors are able to maintain the privacy they desire in their own backyards.

Developers also need to consider the future needs of the property owner and grounds management. Overall maintenance costs are going to be extremely variable depending on the size of the housing development being constructed. For example, Fannie Mae suggests planning on spending approximately 2% of the property's value per year on maintenance. It just makes sense for a developer to look into fencing options that will save them time and money in the long run. Other fencing options are susceptible to natural elements and require timely and costly maintenance throughout the years. With a precast concrete fence, developers can reduce the future costs for owners and their grounds crews because our systems are not impacted by natural elements, meaning they will not rot or warp over time, are not susceptible to termites, or fungus and will not require costly annual maintenance. Our precast concrete fencing systems will provide a long-lasting and durable option that will look as good as the day it was installed years down the line. This is a win-win for developers and owners!
