Concrete has been around for centuries, made popular for its durability and aesthetic versatility. Adding to the widely known benefits of concrete, precast slabs have their own unique set of strengths. Not only is it durable and versatile, it’s easy on the environment and can significantly reduce construction time.
Control can often feel like an evasive concept in the construction industry, but using precast slabs allows you much more control over your job site and schedule. With off-site production, pieces are poured and cured in a controlled environment and then stored in a storage yard until they are needed at the job site. This implies that you get a high quality product that requires less on-site labour and has less impact on the construction site.
Precast slabs are manufactured off-site in a covered environment which means it isn’t weather dependent like other site-cast products. Off-site manufacturing and timeous delivery allow for a cleaner, safer construction site and a project that is delivered on time.
Top quality and durability
Precast slabs are known for their high quality and durability. They can easily withstand the elements and endure years of wear and tear while still being just as strong and resilient as the day it was cured.
Gone are the days of boring, grey concrete structures. With a variety of aggregates, shapes, colours and finishes, precast provides you with a multitude of options. Other materials such as brick, stone and granite can be cast-in at the plant reducing the time, staging and cost on-site installation. With a little creativity, you can achieve the look you desire for the cost and strength of precast concrete.
