TECHNOLOGY:Precast Concrete Construction System – Precast Components Assembled at Site
An already established technology for building construction, Precast concrete construction is a system where the individual precast components such as walls, slabs, stairs, column, beam etc, of building are manufactured in plant or casting yard in controlled conditions. The finished components are then transported to site, erected & installed.
The technology provides solution for low rise to high rise buildings, especially for residential and commercial buildings.
The construction process comprises of manufacturing of precast concrete Columns, Beams and Slabs in steel moulds. The reinforcement cages are placed at the required position in the moulds. Concrete is poured and compaction of concrete is done by shutter/ needle vibrator. Casted components are then moved to stacking yard where curing is done for requited time and then these components are ready for transportation and erection at site.
These precast components are installed at site by crane and assembled together through in-situ jointing and/or grouting etc.
