Abstract
This paper deals with the very interesting subject of Sustainability of building structures and taking a close look at precast concrete structures. It reviews the specific aspects of industrialized construction in enclosed factories. These factories make possible that production conditions are controlled for the quality point of view of the precast elements. Also the conditions that make possible a better quality control than the normal on site work make possible that sustainability conditions are better met. Sustainability conditions take into account from the simple control of emissions, the working conditions of the workers to the possibility of recycling and reuse. It is also discussed the thermal properties of precast concrete elements and the way they can be used to reduce energy consumption in the whole life of a building structure thus making it possible to have more sustainable buildings.
