Abstract : A MULTIPURPOSE BUILDING OF PRECAST THIN-SHELL CONCRETE PANELS WAS ERECTED TO EVALUATE THE FEASIBILITY OF CONSTRUCTING SUCH A BUILDING WITH MILITARY PERSONNEL AND TO STUDY THE TECHNIQUES FOR ERECTING IT. TWO TYPES OF REUSABLE MOLDS, ONE OF PLASTIC-COATED PLYWOOD AND THE OTHER OF STRUCTURAL PLASTIC, EACH WITH METAL SIDE FORMS, WERE USED FOR THE CASTING OF PANELS. A DESCRIPTION OF THE BUILDING, MOLDS, AND METAL SIDEFORMS FOR THE PREFABRICATION OF THE PANELS, AND THE ERECTION TECHNIQUES EMPLOYED ARE GIVEN. SUGGESTIONS AND CAUTIONS FOR FUTURE CONSTRUCTION OF SIMILAR PREFABRICATED PANEL BUILDINGS ARE ALSO PRESENTED
