Product description
This architectural precast concrete has aggregate chips of post consumer recycled float glass included as part of the normal crushed stone, providing depth in the surface and reducing the products environmental burden
To achieve a high quality concrete with little colouring, white cement, good quality sand and dolomite aggregate has been used. These premium ingredients can also lead to increased costs.
Massive structural and complex geometric forms, only limited by the transportation infrastructure, can be achieved by architectural precast concretes. Elements are very heavy but highly durable.
Concrete is not recyclable but downcycling is possible.
