Waitrose, Tesco, Asda, Dunnes Stores, Aldi, …Concast are working with the leading retailers to provide major shopping centres and central distribution centres, throughout Ireland and the UK.
Retail developments require wide open interior spaces, with a high quality finish, which can be achieved quickly yet cost-effectively with precast concrete construction. Whether it’s open plan shop floor, storage warehousing to accommodate central distribution loading bays, customer multi-storey car parking or office space, precast concrete has the flexibility to accommodate the demands of the modern Retailer.
Precast concrete gives retailers the reliability to know with confidence that new store will be built on track and in budget, in advance of the Christmas trade. Precast’s speed of erection and its ability to be erected in almost any weather ensures no time is lost, providing quicker payback than any other building material could offer.
Typical precast elements include:
