No other building material can match the long term durability, low-maintenance and cost-reduction qualities of Precast concrete. Many structures require large, unobstructed open plans for flexible space planning. Precast offers flexible building systems that encourage and enhance new approaches to meet the changing needs of modern buildings. Precast is cost-competitive, consistently high quality and offers more flexibility than most other structural and cladding materials.
Precast beams and column framing systems provide incredible flexibility in layout. Frames can be massive and strong or light and delicate. Standard shapes and sizes are available for columns, beams, walls and stairs. These sizes can be modified and customized to suit specific project requirements. Prestressing beams will reduce construction depth and allow longer clear spans. Lateral forces can be resisted by cantilevered columns, diagonal bracing, shearwalls, frame action or a combination of methods.
