Cast in Concrete

  • Comment

Precast concrete is a unique building material; it combines the visual qualities of a good stone with the advantages of prefabrication, opportunities for fabric energy storage and a solidity and strength that recall traditional concepts of enclosure.

To make the most of these qualities you need to know how to use precast.

Cast in Concrete, a book by Susan Dawson, architect and Working Details editor of The Architects' Journal, aims to provide that knowledge. It describes how precast units are manufactured and finished, how decisions made in the design of a facade will affect the process of construction, and how to realise 'positive'procurement and fast-track construction.More than 20 case studies are included.

Cast in Concrete can be obtained from the BPCF,60 Charles Street, Leicester LE1 1FB (price £25, enclose cheque payable to BPCF) or by credit card from www. theconcretebookshop. com
