Increasingly, the need for affordable is housing is presenting a challenge in urban centres. With its intrinsic qualities, concrete presents a long-term solution to meet the needs of owners and occupants, with benefits that include:
When used in combination with passive and/or active radiant and cooling systems, concrete’s thermal mass can significantly reduce operational costs.
With its strength and durability, concrete can stand up to the wear and tear associated with occupancy turnover and reduce maintenance costs.
Concrete can be customized and modular, cast-in-place or precast for speedier on-site assembly, as required.
Precast concrete can be deconstructed and reassembled at another location to accommodate future priorities.
Concrete can be adapted for future use to suit a large variety of purposes.
