Precast construction of a residential or commercial building or of any other facility implies using prefabricated standardized building components that are usually produced in a different place from the construction site and then just transported there and assembled.
These type of components are mass produced and easy to assemble, and are usually used in regions where the construction industry is rapidly expanding and a large number of buildings are needed in a short time, like in the case of Dubai and Abu Dhabi. They do not imply only a faster construction process, but also lower costs and higher quality than cast in place concrete products.
In comparison with other options, there is no construction system that has as many benefits as the precast concrete wall panel system, considering the speed of the process, the high quality and durability, the versatility and flexibility of implementation, as well as the level of safety during the construction process and after it is finalised. Combining all of these factors and the considerably lower costs, it is the material of choice for many specialists in the industry, for any type of project.
A widely used kind of prefabricated structural applications and construction components is Precast Concrete, which is produced in precast plants, by casting concrete in a standard mold and leaving it in a controlled environment for a period of time in order to be properly cured. After that, the differently shaped pieces are carefully lifted from the mold and taken outside in the open air for further curing before they are delivered to the construction site and assembled. There are two types of products that can be purchased, standard products that are shaped in a regular sized form that is used repeatedly, and specifically designed products, for which the forms are created in order to obtain a shape or size needed by the client. Architectural concrete is usually cast differently to suit the design wanted.
Precast Concrete suppliers in the UAE a wide range of prefabricated concrete products for the construction sector, such as light weight, medium weight and normal weight blocks, decorative blocks, screen blocks, split blocks, slump blocks, bricks, panels, all kinds of precast slabs, including solid flat slabs, hollow core slabs, double tee slabs and single tee slabs, tiles, trench covers, beams and girders, like rectangular beams, L-shaped beams and inverted tee beams, columns of different sizes, precast architectural wall panels, boundary walls, stairs, reinforced and non-reinforced pipes, including culvert pipes, storm sewer pipes, sanitary sewer pipes, pressure pipes, irrigation pipes, drain tiles, conduits, filling, bearing and sheet piles, posts and poles, septic tanks, bridge beams and joists.
You can choose from many different finishes, shapes, sizes and colors that suit your needs or requirements, or the plans of your architect.
There are various companies in Dubai and Abu Dhabi who design, supply, deliver and install precast concrete components for different types of buildings and infrastructure in the area. They follow all of the safety, environment and quality control procedures in the industry.
