Solutions in structural precast construction –

Precast reinforced-concrete elements have been successfully used in industrial and commercial construction for many decades. Such structural frameworks excel with their benefits in respect of fire safety, high load-bearing capacities and short construction times. Precast reinforced-concrete components are very popular with developers of logistics centers and commercial estates. Yet there are also other fields of use:
