Setting-up a profitable precast production is not a piece of cake. Instead, it is a quite complicated puzzle with contradictory interests of city planners, architects, investors, builders, precasters and most of all – users of the buildings. Or is it so?
Building construction planning
Precast can be amazingly flexible building method. Cooperation of architects, structural designers and technology developers has concretized most innovative buildings in the era of industrialized building construction.
When designing modern minimalistic villa or busy business center, precast is a choice of pragmatists. Precast walls are sound insulated and fire and moisture resistant. Precast also reduces need for cooling and heating.
Precast saves materials and resources in the building phase. In structural design, cooperation with precast technology supplier can actually save money in the building process.
Precast production technology planning
Precast production investment is as heavy as you want. There are multiple precast products and production options. You can build the whole house with precast. You can also set-up the whole production outdoors or have it totally automated. Or then you can acquire only one tilting table for a small-scale production of varying precast products.
When the demands of factory capacity, flexibility and level of automation are clear, precast technology and machinery supplier can provide you with preliminary production plan. As a one-stop-supplier, Elematic can also support in finding the best production practices.
From precast production plan, profitability calculations can be processed for your feasibility study. The factory layout draft is normally provided with the supply contract. From the corporate investment planning perspective, it is good to reserve 0.5-1 year for production solution definition.
