Why do we use Concrete?
Reinforced concrete has been used in Construction for hundreds of years as it is a locally sourced and durable construction material.
As it can be pre-formed (shuttered) and fabricated into any shape, Designers can create many complex and multi-level structures due to its flexibility. These are either cast “in situ” or pre-cast off site.
The structures rely upon designed steel reinforcement within the concrete frame to create a framework that will carry the designed load. The concrete (when cured) creates a permanent load bearing structure.
