PRECAST

WHAT IS PRECAST CONCRETE?

The concept of precast construction includes those buildings, where the majority of structural components are standardized and produced in a location away from the building, and then transported to the site for assembly. In short proposed structure split into simpler components, produced as individual units and assembled in position to form complex structure.

Better building through technology

As demands increase for fast design-build schedules and sustainable structures, precast, prestressed concrete systems are fast becoming the most effective way of achieving these goals. Our knowledge and experience allow us to creatively solve structural issues quickly, competently and economically. We are passionate about taking on challenges and delivering quality precast systems

WHY PRECAST CONCRETE?

When all economic factors are considered, precast / prestressed concrete is increasingly the choice of today's designers. Industrial manufacturing techniques permit cost savings which cannot be achieved in step by step field construction methods.

PRECAST CONCRETE ADVANTAGE

Precast Concrete is high tensile steel and high compressive strength concrete are combined to form components which frequently would not be achieved within the same size limitations using other modes of construction.

Inherent in high strength concrete are fire resistance, immunity to corrosion, resistance to organic attack, and weathering resistance. These result in an increased life span of structures.

Industrial manufacturing methods permit a degree of quality control which is normally unattainable for field work. Precast concrete affords the designer the opportunity of preinstallation inspection and approval.

Precast concrete construction permits fabrication of project superstructures concurrent with installation of foundations resulting in substantial savings of overall construction time.

Shorter construction time results in savings in main contractors’ overheads and financing cost. High quality, durability, flexibility, and aesthetics will result in significant cost savings in construction cost, energy consumption, maintenance costs and long lifespan of the building.

With precast concrete, architects and designers can full reign to their imagination allowing all sorts of decorative patterns, reveals, cornices, recesses and curvature in their design. Precast concrete surfaces finishes offers a rich and varying array of possibilities, allowing greater freedom and creativity

ADDITIONAL BENEFITS

In addition to the advantages listed above for precast, prestressed precast system offer the following added features:

Light Economical construction

Prestressing and high strength concrete makes it possible to use less material to achieve similar load-bearing capacity and, hence, make substantial cost savings in both reinforcement and concrete. Reduced section sizes lead to lower dead loads and cost savings in foundation.

Long Spans

Prestressing of the precast elements means longer and more efficient spans, allowing large, open spaces reducing the number of columns and beams in the structure.

High load capacity

Precast prestressed elements can carry much heavier loads as compared to normal reinforced concrete structures, which make them ideal for heavy load bearing structure such as tunnels, bridges, car park.
