10 reasons why you should use precast concrete

10 reasons why you should use precast concrete

  1. Precast concrete uses Australian materials and labour.
  2. The design of precast concrete can save up to 30% in the volume of concrete usually used for a standard suspended floor.
  3. The thermal mass absorbs and releases heat slowly which ends up saving up to 25% on heating and cooling costs.
  4. Precast can be manufactured off site while the site construction has started which saves time and therefore money.
  5. Precast is a strong material that can last for years with almost no maintenance and chemical treatment against rot and insect attack which means no emissions in the internal environment.
  6. Precast concrete structures have been successfully tested against burns, rots and water damage.
  7. The offsite-made precast concrete significantly reduces construction waste and debris on site.
  8. Precast concrete offers a wide range of shapes, colours and textures that enhances the building’s aesthetic appearance.
  9. In opposition to a construction on site, the offsite manufacture reduces the construction and labour costs but also produces less noise and dust.
  10. Precast concrete uses recycled materials such as recycled steel for the reinforcement or recycled contents for the insulation.
