Precast Building and Design in General
Yes you can. Precast requires specific designing skills in seismic areas and connection details are different, but precast has been used successfully in seismic areas too.
Building with precast doesn’t limit the architects design work in any way. Precast concrete can be made in various shapes and sizes and even printed on. Check references for different kind of precast buildings.
Precast can be made into any shape or color and finished with several techniques. This together with longer spans gives architects and other designers more freedom than ever. Check references for different kind of precast buildings.
Generally the most economical distance is max. 100-200 kilometers, depending on the delivered precast product and road conditions.
Precast suits well for any type of building: residential, commercial, industrial, public to name a few. There is a suitable solution for both indoor and outdoor production.
Sandwich panels consist of two concrete leaves with an insulation layer in between.
Compared to cast-in-situ, precast uses less of everything – less cement, less water, less steel, and less labor. It produces less waste on the site and in the factory. This makes CO2 footprint of precast much smaller than in cast-in-situ construction.
Precast offers a safer and healthier working environment. Material handling is easier and less scaffolding is needed. Precast technology works in virtually all environments – cold, hot, moist or dry.
Because of Elematic’s world wide network of providers, connections and connection expertise can be acquired almost anywhere locally.
