A new publication from The Concrete Centre highlights the benefits of hybrid concrete construction (HCC) - combining precast and in situ work. The growing number of HCC projects at drawing-board stage underlines the increasing recognition of the design and construction benefits of HCC.
HCC combines precast concrete and in situ concrete in order to realise their different inherent qualities. The accuracy, speed and high quality of precast is combined with the economy and flexibility of in situ. The results are fast construction and considerable cost savings of up to 30 per cent compared with other forms of structural framing.
Hybrid Concrete Construction: Combining Precast and In-situ Concrete for Better Value Structural Frames is available from The Concrete Centre. Tel 0700 4 500 500, email literature@concretecentre. com; or download the document from www. concretecentre. com
