Meter Pits & Valve Vaults

Precast Concrete Geothermal Vault

Geothermal Energy is a safe, renewable energy stored within the earth and is becoming increasingly popular due to the public’s growing concern for reducing waste.  Due to the earth’s constant temperature, geothermal energy can be efficiently used for heating and cooling purposes without harm to the environment.  Advance Concrete Products Co. is called upon for geothermal systems because we are experts in manufacturing quality underground enclosures.  Since 1966, our customers are confident their energy distribution equipment will be housed in a structurally sound, watertight, precast concrete vault, sized according to their specific requirements.  Here is an example of one of Advance Concrete Products’ precast concrete geothermal vaults, without the roof, installed by our experienced crane operator and the contractor’s job site crew.
