The company’s comprehensive services cover the detail design, manufacture, delivery and, where appropriate, the installation of architectural precast concrete units. These are supported by the following specialist resources:
An in-house drawing office with networked CAD facility running Autocad and Revit for BIM software packages for the preparation of general arrangements drawings and their development into builders work and workshop drawings and details.
In addition to the employment of an established workforce of skilled operatives, the company operates a purpose-built and equipped factory with computerized batching and mixing plant and overhead cranes serving its casting shops and storage areas. There are also workshops for the manufacture and alteration of moulds and for the cutting, bending and fabrication of steel reinforcement cages.
