Prefabricated concrete wall panels are the easiest and most economical way to enhance the aesthetics of your next project. Thanks to their unique combination of thermal insulation and pest-, mold-, and weather-resistant properties, Wells building enclosures have a greater lifetime cost efficiency than any other wall construction — and can even be used as a structural component to create more design possibilities.
Economical to produce, erect and maintain, Wells prefabrication can be customized in a virtually limitless range of colors, textures and shapes — creating a dramatic range of architectural expressions to fit any project or application.
With prefabrication, the design possibilities are endless.
A great finish puts the final touch on any project.

The limitless finishes, colors and custom features of prefabrication.
Your project's architecture is achieved using custom finishing techniques and a wide variety of surface textures to create different visual effects, from smooth, polished panels to a more natural stone look.
The color of finished design comes from the unique combination of materials used to make it. Sand and aggregate, along with cement, pigments and other materials can be mixed and treated in a variety of ways to achieve virtually any desired color and effect.
One-of-a-kind designs that include reveals, bullnoses, cornices and dentils can be prefabricated and incorporated into your project’s architecture to create a distinct appearance with greater dimension and variety of surface depth. For an even more distinct look, Wells can create a custom design solution, incorporating multiple finishes, colors or materials for limitless design possibilities.
