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.
Ibis Hotel, Edinburgh
PCS have received the order for the, design, manufacture and erection of the precast concrete frame. The hotel has a total of 165 rooms over 4 floors. The design encompasses a steel framed ground floor transfer deck. This design gives the benefits of an open and light reception area, lobby, and bar area. The project combines the benefits of precast hollowcore floors, complete room sized solid precast slabs, Twinwall, and precast concrete staircases along with lightweight metal framing exterior elevations. This unique combination of prefabricated units will allow lateral restraint, diaphragm action, and progressive collapse design, to be fully integrated in a simple, yet effective design solution. The main contractor, Anglo Holt Construction, will begin on site in summer 2013, with PCS starting in September 2013 with a planned 12 week programme.
