INTELLIGENT THINKING IN CONCRETE
ICON PRECAST DESIGN SOLUTIONS FOR INDUSTRY, WITH THE USE OF PRECAST CONCRETE MANUFACTURED-FOR-PURPOSE IN STEEL AND FIBREGLASS MOULDS.
Reduced construction time and less waste, lowers costs
Cow House Construction specialise in the use of ICON Precast concrete during construction (in fact we helped design the ICON Precast system).
The use of moulds allows ICON Precast to design intelligent problem solving features, and build them into the concrete, as it is cast in the factory.
The ICON Precast concrete system greatly reduces the material and labour waste traditionally associated with concrete construction on a building site.
For example; ChrisBroadhead Construction designed precast concrete components that reduced the construction time of an 180 metre long building from 6-8 months to 8 weeks. In financial terms this design can save a client anywhere from $50 – 75k on excavations alone, and a further $47,000 in interest.
Combined with reduced wastage of construction materials and reduced on-site labour this can reduce the cost of a building by as much as 10%.
Once you free your mind from the limitations of traditional concrete design, the possibilities for use are endless. ICON Precast can be used in any application where you have repetitive needs, a need to form shapes, a need to solve problems, or where rough cast concrete becomes difficult to work with and maintain.
Using fibreglass moulds makes the finished concrete naturally smooth, so it can be easily maintained and saves on labour costs where the surfaces have to be regularly cleaned.
Precast concrete truly is the shape of things to come.
