CCP can provide a variety of options for concrete frame construction, all of which are interchangeable to best meet the requirements of a particular site.
- Precast frame
- Crosswall construction
- Hybrid construction
Precast elements as part of an insitu hybrid frame such as shear walls, concrete decks (Demidec floors), columns and staircases is often seen as a best of both worlds solution as it marries together the advantages of precast and insitu concrete. By utilising precast elements in an insitu frame construction, programme times are speeded up, thereby saving costs.
Concrete produces robust and adaptable buildings that are inherently fire resistant, vibration free and quiet. Exposure of the concrete frame will exploit concrete’s inherent thermal properties in naturally ventilated, low energy buildings.
