Although concrete is the most commonly used building material in the world, we often overlook the nearly limitless possibilities offered by the manufacture and use of precast concrete components in the Building Industry.
The proven technology behind precast production, design and construction stretches back hundreds of years. Combining architectural and structural stability and functions, the use of precast concrete components, which increase in strength over time, creates advantages that include speed, flexibility and aesthetics. As structural stability has to be maintained for long periods, the hard, tough surface and extreme resistance to everyday use, precast concrete remains a popular product of choice in commercial and residential construction projects where owners, designers and developers are further attracted by the superior durability, sustainability, minimal creep and shrinkage, fire resistance and sound-control features.
Advanced technologies used in the manufacture of versatile precast concrete components, where stagnation is curbed by a continued effort to renew ideas, designs and materials, create an improved quality product when compared with in-situ cast concrete components. Additionally, the quality of precast products can be monitored prior to installation into a fixed structure or site work.
The considerable advantages of the utilization of precast concrete components in construction are combined with the inherent benefits of concrete to provide a superior construction product.
