Precast

Precast concrete products are constantly being introduced to fill technology gaps identified by clients and specifiers through changes in government policy. Much investment has been injected into the technology of precast boxes for culverts in recent years. Not too long ago, the largest precast box was 3600mm X 3600mm (12-foot X 12-foot). Some customers needed larger structures to accelerate construction schedules. The concrete pipe industry responded with precast boxes that are 6m wide and 4m high. Concrete pipe producers helped with the specification and design of multi-cell box culverts to accelerate installation time, and now triple 2.4m x 2.4m reinforced concrete box culverts are not unusual.

Concrete pipe producers continue to build precast concrete infrastructure systems that now include products that not so long ago could not be seen in their yards. Precast concrete components for structures now include arches and boxes for storage, protection of utilities and services, and small bridges. The demand for larger precast systems now require the production of slabs and beams to complete drainage and storage structures.
