In-situ concrete

Need a stable structure?

Unlike precast units, In-situ concrete is poured into its permanent location. The correct and consistent mixing of the concrete, suitable formwork, and careful workmanship are fundamental for achieving the structure's aimed building stability and durability.

Cast-in-place concrete is the most used method for concrete slabs, foundations, beams, columns, walls, and so on.

Scope of our services:

 

·        Formwork: Different materials are used for shuttering, such as plywood, timber, steel, aluminium or plastic. Each system has its particular characteristic, and the option to be used will determine the cost ,quality, potential shapes and finishing of the product. Talk to our team of specialists to find out which one is the best fit for your project.

 

·        Reinforcing steel: Rebar is a vital component of a structure, especially if the building has to withstand earthquakes, as in New Zealand. Experienced steel-fixers and foreman supervision will ensure the project is done accordingly to the specifications.

 

·        Concrete Pouring: This is the showtime; it's when your project starts to get shape. The clock is ticking once the mixing begins. NZS3104:2003 Specification for concrete production says that full discharge of concrete from ready-mix trucks shall be completed within 90 minutes after the commencement of mixing. Proper preparation, good mix design and workmanship are the keys to producing crack-free concrete.

 

·        Finishing: NZS 3114:1987 Specification for Concrete Surface Finishes outlines 11 classes of concrete surface finishes. Each type involves a different technique to achieve the desired outcome.
