Precast Concrete -Technology used in Large Scale Constructions

Efficient, economical and durable, precast concrete offers a wide range of benefits, making it a go-to choice for large-scale construction where efficiency is key. Precast concrete is made by casting concrete in reusable molds or forms in a controlled environment and transported to the construction site to be lifted for use. Owing to its speed and quality, precast concrete helps speed up the construction process; the material is environmental-friendly and requires less manpower. Since traditional insitu concrete or structural steel construction requires multiple trades, consultants and lead times, most companies are moving towards precast concrete.

Here are a few benefits you can expect from using precast concrete in your construction projects:

Offsite Preparation Facilitates Timely Delivery

The strength and quality of concrete are driven by its curing process, with climate control playing a huge role. Offsite preparation in a factory allows the team to control the climate and create ideal conditions for curing precast concrete. This helps in achieving the desired precision, strength and consistency while facilitating timely delivery of the project.

Withstand Natural Calamities

Prefabricated structures are not only opted for their cost-effectiveness but also their strength. Lightweight yet immensely strong, they can bear a lot of weight, and they minimise the requirement for additional support within the internal structure. Moreover, since precast concrete expands and contracts and is fire and disaster-resistant, it can easily withstand flood damage, rain penetration, debris, and other calamities.

Rust & Pest Resistant

Structures like overpasses and bridges with high wear and tear are all made of precast concrete. Precast concrete is strong and highly resistant to chemical exposure, enabling it to protect any structure from spills or rusting. Precast panel installation can easily give a longer life to any structure.  Houses made of precast concrete have strong protection against pests since the material is not made of organic raw material and its density is relatively high.

Cost-Efficient

Leveraging precast concrete technology in construction projects helps in saving cost massively since factory cast concrete offers quality control, uses assembly line techniques for fabrication and is more efficiently manufactured. The time saved from manufacturing precast concrete offsite, reduction in site defects, propping and scaffolding costs, and reduction in build time helps minimise financial cost and drive down costs.

Versatile

Owing to its benefits, precast concrete is used in a wide range of applications across industries. Since it is factory-made, precast concrete enables incorporating elements such as insulation materials which would otherwise be impossible for the material prepared on site. This also helps in saving labour, cost, and space during construction.

Finished Product

Precast concrete is a finished product, so you don’t need to put linings or cladding over the product which eventually eliminates the need for applied finishes.

Sustainable

A controlled environment allows maximisation of material efficiency since precision helps reduce material wastage which is harder to achieve onsite as contractors are motivated to order more concrete than is required; this also impacts the quality. Also, since concrete is recyclable, you will opt for sustainability in your precast concrete construction projects.
