Precast Concrete Stairs were designed, manufactured and installed for our client Bennett Construction Ltd for their large Grade A office building with a gross internal floor area of 25568 sqm 91-94 North Wall Quay in Dublin.
What is Grade A Office Specification?
A grade A office building is the pinnacle quality that can be achieved. This property will be brand new or have undergone a complete redevelopment with a high-specification renovation, it will be well-located with good access and be professionally managed.
Advantages of Precast Concrete Stairs:
There are many advantages of precast concrete stairs:
Saves Construction Time: Precast Concrete construction saves time, the risk of project delay is also less. The precast concrete casting can be carried on simultaneously with other works on site therefore saves time.
Quality Assurance: The key factors which regulate the quality of construction such as curing, temperature, mix design, formwork, etc. can be monitored for Precast Concrete. So, improved quality construction can be performed.
Usage of Prestressed Concrete: By using pre-stressed precast, structural materials of high strength and load-bearing capacity can be achieved, which can result in greater clear span, reduced size of the cross-section of structural members, etc.
Cost-effective: The simplified construction process reduces the time, increases the productivity, quality and safety and thus the cost is reduced.
Durability: Precast Concrete structure has a longer service time period and minimal maintenance. The high-density Precast Concrete is more durable to acid attack, corrosion, impact, reduces surface voids and resists the accumulation of dust.
Aesthetics: As the structures are prefabricated in a controlled factory environment, several combinations of colours and textures can be used. A wide range of shapes and sizes are available to choose from with smooth finishing and thus the aesthetical value of products are increased
