The Alcrete manufacturing system represents the ultimate customer driven process. Once an architect’s fixed drawings are received, our highly skilled Auto CAD engineers start creating detailed workshop drawings for client approval. These drawings feature the highest degree of precision and detail, including visualisation in both 2D and 3D.
Our in-house design team coordinates with the client to produce structural and panel designs to the specifications of the project. Once the workshop drawings have been approved, they are then processed by the master computer where a sophisticated CAD-CAM interface provides every piece of high technology equipment involved in the manufacturing process with the information it needs to perform its task. This information includes everything from the dimensions and shape design to concrete type and finish in an unrivalled level of precision throughout the entire process.
Building in BIM
Alcrete Building Systems is proud to say the team “Builds in BIM”. Another tool from the LEAN suite, BIM allows the Company to build the product which assists in eliminating issues at manufacture and installation. While some projects are still working in AutoCad which is equally supported, to reflect the growing change in design there is now a core BIM team consulting with the Clients as needs arise.
This team are working in Tekla and giving full structural design including modelling for projects as required. The Industry is advancing and clear digital design and modelling is part of the future of construction which the design team at Alcrete Building Systems embrace.
Alcrete technical experts and design engineers have extensive experience in a wide variety of precast pre-stressed concrete application and can provide assistance at any point from identifying the optimal structure arrangement.
Our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Arthurstown, Ireland spans over 125,000 square foot. It provides an unsurpassed service in terms of speed, precision and quality, resulting in significant cost savings compared to traditional construction methods.
Alcrete Building Systems ensure the highest standards in servicing the needs of each project. We have a highly skilled and experienced Logistics team on hand to ensure that every product is delivered safely and efficiently to site.
