Why Precast Concrete ?
Precast concrete is highly resistant to impact, corrosion, weathering, abrasion and other ravages of time, which reduces maintenance and operating costs. A low water/cement ratio combined with good compaction and curing in a controlled factory environment ensures a dense, highly durable concrete.
Precast concrete provides the designer with an unlimited architectural vocabulary of expression. It is incredibly responsive to the designer’s needs, as it can be shaped in a cost effective manner. The only limits are imagination and creativity. Design flexibility is possible in both color and texture by varying aggregate and matrix colors, size of aggregates, finishing processes and depth of exposure.
Precast concrete components produced by internationally certified plants are produced under strict, factory-controlled conditions to ensure the highest quality in the desired shapes, colors and textures along with applicable tolerances.
Our thermal-efficient precast concrete building systems with continuous insulation offer a number of sustainability benefits during the construction process and long after the building has been completed. We help increase each building’s sustainability by reducing its embodied energy. Precast concrete’s ability to store energy and dampen the effect of temperature change on heating and cooling systems which may save a considerable amount of energy over the long term and can result in significant cost savings.
Precast concrete is non-combustible with built-in fire-resistant capability. It creates a safe envelope that helps protect people, equipment and the building itself. And it may also be helpful in reducing property insurance premiums.
