Precast concrete is the perfect material to link the practical with the desirable. The technical benefits and aesthetic possibilities appeal to both clients and designers alike.
FP McCann offers all forms of architectural precast components, whether as structural load-bearing members, built as part of the primary frame, such as external sandwich panels or structural columns, or as a decorative cladding element to the facades, like spandrels, mullions or fully storey high panels.
Precast concrete is ideal as a cladding material, especially where complex geometry on the facades have to be achieved, access is restricted, or the project programme demands fast on-site construction.
Our in-house design and technical department provides reassurance that the structural and aesthetic requirements of your scheme are met. In order to achieve the best solution and to ensure the most cost effective approach, we recommend contacting us at an early stage on your project, so that we can provide the maximum technical support.
