Advantages

  • Since precast is manufactured in a controlled casting environment, it is easier to control the mix, placement and curing.
  • Quality can be controlled and monitored much more easily.
  • Since a precaster can buy materials for multiple projects, quantity discuss can lower costs.
  • Weather is eliminated as a factor – you can cast in any weather and get the same results, which allow you to perfect mixes and methods.
  • Less labour is required and that labour can be less skilled.
  • On site, precast can be installed immediately, there is no waiting for it to gain strength and the modularity of precast products makes installation go quickly.
  • Repeatability – it’s easy to make many copies of the same precast product, by maximizing repetition, you can get plenty of value from a mould and a set-up.
  • Accelerated curing, by heating the precast parts, greatly increases strength gain, reducing the time between casting the part and putting it into service.
  • With the ability to so tightly control the process, from materials to consolidation to curing, you can get extremely durable concrete.
