SPANWRIGHT FLOORING - Precast Concrete Flooring Manufacturer Spanwright Publish Article On Advantages Of Precast

Spanwright Flooring, leading provider of precast reinforced, prestressed and hollowcore concrete floors have published an industry article on the advantages of using precast concrete in construction.

More construction industry decision makers are recognising the significant benefits of modern methods of construction (MMC); better products and processes, and improved business efficiency, quality, safety and environmental performance.

The article is called MMC (Modern Methods of Construction) and the advantages of using precast concrete in construction
Spanwright Flooring have embraced the growing trend towards modern methods of construction (MMC) by offering a range of innovative precast, pre-stressed and reinforced concrete products which can be used to reduce construction time and promote sustainable development, as well as offering the developer significant cost savings.

In recent years there has been a real shift from using traditional concreting methods, as the benefits of precast concrete and MMC are recognised and grow in popularity. The advantages of precast are clear, faster erection time, the superior quality of the result, and the lifetime energy efficiencies from the thermal mass of the concrete. Precast concrete is seen by many as the best commercial solution for bespoke concrete work.

Structural Precast Manager, Gareth McMeekin said:
“The benefits of using precast concrete are well known, but selecting the most appropriate product for each project is often more difficult. For example, reinforced precast concrete floors are more economic for shorter floor spans and light loading situations, e.g. Housing / residential construction, whereas prestressed flooring units can span longer distances and take heavier loads, making them more suited for commercial construction projects.
These issues need consideration earlier in the building design process so we have written the article to highlight the many advantages of using precast in construction”
