CTC pioneered the development of the pre-stressed concrete industry in the United States. Today, CTC's 30-acre plant includes over 150,000 sf of enclosed production facilities; a state-of-the-art batch plant; welding, rebar, and carpentry fabrication shops; bridge, gantry, and mobile cranes; and shipping by truck, rail, and barge. The result of this is thousands of bridges, buildings, piers, tanks, floats and other structures throughout the Pacific Northwest and Alaska have been built with CTC products.  (

The tour will start with a presentation about history, the prestressing process, application, and safety.  Followed by a tour through the fabrication yard to see stressing beds, equipment, and setup.    

Personal Safety Requirement
CTC can provide all personal protective gear, but asks that all coming for the tour wear long pants and sturdy shoes/boots (no tennis shoes).

New affordable housing is costly compared to rehabilitation and repair. Even with the Seattle Housing Levy providing additional financing, 1 new unit of affordable housing in Seattle costs on average $268,605 to build. 

Come join ASCE at the Rebuilding Together event on Saturday, April 28th this year. You could be part of a community of local volunteers transforming deteriorating houses into safe, healthy, and affordable homes. If interested in volunteering, please contact Megan Ramsay at
