Seamless Onsite Installation
Planning and Preparatory Works
Efficient installation of precast concrete components demands proper planning and preparatory works. This includes the method and sequence of assembly and erection, the provision of temporary supports, provision for final structural connections and joint details, calculation of erection tolerances and handling and rigging requirements. Techrete supervise site installation and maintain close liaison with the main contractor.
Precision, Accuracy & Speed
Speed of panel installation has always been a key success factor in the use of architectural cladding. Over the years, Techrete has designed and developed items of equipment to facilitate complex manoeuvres, including a variety of C hooks, tilting rigs and counterbalance rigs to facilitate the installation of panels under projecting framework. This is required in particular on high-rise buildings where installation of the precast must start before the frame has been topped out.
The installation of Techrete precast panels and associated works is carried out by fully trained and competent operatives using certified equipment for each task at hand. Drafting and implementation of Techrete risk assessments and method statements is carried out with full communication with the main contractor, which takes into consideration the ever-changing aspects of a live site.
