Sports Stadia

Concast is the leading provider of Sports and Leisure Stadia in Ireland and has worked on such prestigious jobs as Croke Park and the O2 arena. Sports Stadia are ideally suited for precast construction, due to the large number of standard units that are used in their construction. Raker beams span between columns, at regular intervals, and seating units span between raker beams to make up the basic shape of the stand. These are then combined with vomitory wall panels and stair units to create access to and from the seating area.

  • Wideslab

    Wideslab is a solid precast slab, which is pre-stressed to provide excellent span/ ratio depth. The standard slab width is 2400mm and available in depths of 80, 100, 125, 150 and 175 mm depths (our standard sizes are 100 and 150mm). Wideslab is often used with a structural screed, to aid stability of the structure and increase its load capacity.
