Precast Structures is the industry specialist in the design, manufacture and erection of offsite modular building techniques using precast concrete manufactured by our manufacturing partners. We have the ability to choose the best design solution for your specific project utilizing a wealth of precast concrete options.
PCS has built a reputation based on extensive experience of economical design, the latest manufacturing processes and the use of composite steel and concrete materials most appropriate to the project.
The adoption of Modern Methods of building construction is limited when restricted to a single material and is often constrained by conventional design thinking.
PCS designs are innovative in both manufacture and concept. By directly employing in house erection teams the practicality of the erection process is factored into the project design.
With the experience of the PCS team a partnership can be developed with the Project Design Team and assist in developing new solutions, by providing critical design information at early development stages. This can assist in the choice of precast concrete as the correct solution to the building design development.
