Creativity in precast concrete: from design and texture to colour and the environment, NVC Precast uses its experience to deliver innovation for its customers.
Innovations in design and precast concrete construction are providing a plethora of solutions allowing designers and contractors more freedom in creating the aesthetically pleasing structures. The advancements of the precast concrete for the civil construction industry also allow construction companies the ability to consciously build in environmentally sensitive areas with minimal risk.
It’s this passion for modernism in precast concrete construction that drives intricate pattern design and colour. In a simple, yet cost-effective manner, surface texture and colour can bring an infrastructure project to life.
Likewise, the adoption of new techniques and materials in the creation of precast structures gives civil construction companies the freedom to design bespoke structures. Innovative approaches can then provide a commercial edge to contractors in the competitive tender process.
All of these design benefits aside, safety and environmental considerations are also assured through proper precast structure planning. Work in environmentally sensitive areas such as rivers or forest reserves can be managed with reduced risk to the environment, whilst reducing many onsite safety issues.
