Precast concrete products are factory-made elements which are manufactured with concrete in a pre-engineered mold, treated and cured in a controlled factory environment, transported and erected in project site.
The primary advantage of using precast concrete products compared to traditional Cast in place construction is speed and reduced cost of construction. Also, Precast offers outstanding quality, Sustainability, No formwork needed at site and reduced construction related safety risks.
The product portfolio comprises of various types of precast or pre-stressed products such as:
Precast Columns can be single-tier or multi-tiered as required. Use of precast columns will expedite the project, as there is no requirement to wait for the curing time in order to reach the required strength as there is with cast-in-situ columns.
Column connections are often made using bolted or socket connections with foundations.

Precast Beams provide a flexible solution to the structural component of your project. Precast Beams can be used for a number of applications from parking structures to the structural framework of commercial buildings. Modern concrete has various types of concrete beams such as Normal reinforced concrete beams for traditional and residential buildings, Prestressed beams for Halls and garages and Delta beam for industrial hangers.
With same quality and speed of precast products, when high loaded, large spans floors or stadiums risers are required , the prestressed floor elements (hollow core slabs , double tee slabs , beams , bleachers,… ) are the optimum , fastest and most effective solution compared to cast in place construction
Pre-stressed precast hollow core slabs are the most widely used type of precast flooring. The system offers numerous benefits to engineers and architects because it gives maximum strength with minimum weight, versatility in span / depth ratio, a smooth soffit and a high speed of erection leading to an economical way to construct floors.
Modern Precast manufactures a full range of hollow core slabs with thicknesses ranging from 120mm to 500mm, with longest spans up to 20 meters. For further details:

Prestressed Double tee slabs are the best choice when it comes to covering Very large span halls up to 32 meters or Heavy Loaded Parking
