Flood Precast worked as a sub-contactor in design and manufacture and delivery of Precast Concrete Stairs for David Ashley Construction to development of Heart of the City 2 by main contactor Galliford Try.
As part of this project, we delivered 72no precast stairs and associated precast landings to two Blocks of mixed residential and commercial known as Athol, Laycock and Isaac’s House.
ADVANTAGES OF USING PRECAST CONCRETE STAIRS IN RESIDENITAL BLOCKS:
- Superior quality is produced as it is possible to have better technical control on the production of concrete in factory.
- The moulds used for preparing the precast units are of steel with exact dimension.
- The precast stairs may be given the desired shape and finish with accuracy.
- Precast Stairs installation can be completed in a short time allowing follow up trades to use them.
