Product description
The surface of this architectural precast concrete has been highly polished to produce an aesthetic feature from the high quality aggregate.
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.

Intended applications
• External envelope
• Structural elements
