Precast Crosswall - Design & Production
FP McCann has established a reputation for providing a wide range of concrete solutions for technically demanding projects that require a precision seldom associated with precast concrete. Client designs are progressed using the latest CAD and drafting systems, including 3D modelling, ensuring BIM compatibility and providing optimum design and build solutions.
The crosswall system is designed in accordance with Building Regulation requirements and current British Standards, particularly BS EN 1992 (Eurocode 2).
Unless specified otherwise, loadings are generally to the latest revision of BS EN 1991 (Eurocode 1).
Walls are generally designed as plain walls to Eurocode 2 and are reinforced locally over windows and at openings etc. Floors can be prestressed hollowcore planks, solid reinforced or prestressed concrete slabs.
Precast crosswall components are produced at FP McCann’s modern factories, which are Quality and Environment Accredited to ISO 9001 QMS and ISO 14001 EMS. All aspects of the production cycle are carried out in strict accordance with British Standards and the clients’ own requirements.
FP McCann’s experience and knowledge of off-site construction ensures that all products are designed and manufactured for ease of assembly.
The manufacturing process is carried out by a highly skilled and experienced workforce. Concrete of the exact specifications is batched automatically by the automated mixing plants, then distributed by bullet skips to a precise location within the factory.
FP McCann operates a quality management system which complies with the requirements of ISO 9001 for the design and manufacture of precast concrete products.
FP McCann is committed to working closely with its customers, providing products and services to meet their construction and engineering needs.
Each factory has its own independent Quality Inspector to ensure compliance with ISO standards.
