Our Facility

One of the highest quality manufacturing facilities in the U.S

Dutchland is a PCI-certified facility that produces the highest quality concrete available to guarantee long-term durability and watertightness. Each precast piece is produced in a temperature-controlled plant under optimized conditions and very stringent quality control requirements. Dutchland’s off-site precast construction technique results in an unprecendented level of quality assurance that cannot be matched by any on-site casting methods.

  • Concrete panels are cast horizontally on steel tables, resulting in increased concrete consolidation.
  • Dutchland produces its own concrete with materials that come from nearby quarries and from suppliers we utilize year after year to assure predictable and consistent results.
  • Dutchland utilizes self-consolidating concrete with a very low water-to-cement ratio. (0.38).
  • Dutchland utilizes 24% fly-ash substitution to concrete mix to produce dense, impermeable concrete.
  • Dutchland concrete is designed for 5000 or 6000 psi at 28 days.
  • Dutchland shapes its own steel for rebar which enables us to reach much tighter tolerances than outside companies.
  • Precasting concrete results in a shorter overall project schedule because precast operations occur at our facility while site work, such as excavation and the installation of deep foundations, are occurring simultaneously.
  • Dutchland precast manufacturing is not adversely affected by winter weather.

Dutchland strives to be good stewards of our environment at our facility; that’s why we’ve been proactive with green initiatives and remain devoted to cleaner soil, air and water. There is no wasted concrete at the Dutchland facility – any unused concrete is used to manufacture retaining blocks. Additionally, each precast concrete solution from Dutchland qualifies our clients for LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) credit points, as our storage tanks are recognized as environmentally safe by the US Green Building Council.
