The Face Behind the Voice

Jason Zellmer“Please connect me with Jasen Zellmer”…you may know the name and voice but probably not the face.

Jasen recently joined our AutoCad department. Working with Steve Truax, Jasen works with customers and Wieser Concrete production staff to ensure
that the precast product the customer orders matches the structure produced.

Steve and Jasen create production drawings and work with the customer to secure an approved drawing and then provide technical support as needed throughout the project.

Jason calls Durand, Wisconsin his home and looks forward to working with you on your next project!

Precast Wins the Day

Lester Park SchoolBring on the rain. Quick and efficient — precast concrete underground stormwater systems are sized to channel large discharges of rainwater through the proper outlet and at a prescribed flow to nearby bodies of water.

Stormwater management products are structures designed for underground installation that have been specifically engineered for the treatment and removal of pollutants from stormwater run-off.
These precast concrete products include vaults, catch basins and manholes. Most stormwater management products are modular in design and are available in a number of configurations. The structures and all connections are constructed
with watertight integrity so that the contents discharge only as prescribed.

This month’s featured project was originally specified as a poured-in-place tank but when the option of a Wieser precast tank was presented, the customer determined that installing the precast structure would save time and money. In addition, precast
offered additional value such as:

  • Proven strength, resilience and water-tightness.
  • With a specific gravity of 2.40, precast concrete resists buoyant forces better than any other material. Once it is installed, it stays put! AND
  • Precast concrete withstands not only the volumes of water flowing inside them, but extreme loading conditions on the outside as well. And in both cases, precast stands up to corrosive elements.

Wieser Concrete can produce and deliver the precast structures your project requires. Contact your nearest Wieser Concrete sales office to get started.
