The Benefits of Precast Concrete in Commercial Buildings
Speed and Simplicity
Its simplicity, and the speed of construction it offers, have ensured that precast concrete is a popular and widely-used building material for commercial buildings. It presents high-quality and environmentally-sustainable solutions in a variety of commercial settings.
Quality Assurance and Precision
Because precast concrete sections are fabricated offsite in climate-controlled conditions, quality can be assured and tight manufacturing tolerances respected. Precast concrete cures in optimal conditions, and as a result its longevity and structural strength are far more reliable than those of concrete poured in an unpredictable atmosphere.
Building in Bad Weather
On-site, construction using precast components can proceed in all but the worst weather conditions, saving expense and ensuring that tight building deadlines can be met.
Custom Fittings and Follow-On Trades
Precast concrete panels can be produced with openings and fixings for electrical and other utilities already in place, producing yet another time saving. Follow-on trades such as electricians and floor-layers can get to work without delay, reducing overall construction time.
A major advantage of precast concrete in office and industrial buildings is its ability to create large open interiors with a minimum of columns and beams; these wide spans are particularly useful in settings such as multi-storey car parks, warehouses, and retail premises.
Pre-cast concrete commercial buildings offer a high-quality business environment which can be ready in a relatively short period, yet tailored to the customer’s specific needs. They offer excellent value for money in both construction and running costs.
