O’Reilly Concrete’s Hollowcore concrete flooring uses an innovative high pressure dry extruded casting system in our precast production plant in Belturbet Ireland.
Our hollowcore flooring is prestressed with tensioned steel reinforcement and can be customised based on customer requirements.
As our products are adaptable, our flooring can be reinforced with extra strength variations where needed.
All our precast and prestressed concrete products are designed, manufactured and installed by highly qualified personnel who from the team at O’Reilly Concrete.
When faced with demands for innovative applications in complex construction projects our design team liaise with architects, consulting engineers and main contractors to produce the best engineering solution.
All our products are manufactured using the most up-to-date computer aided technology which ensures a very high quality finished product.
The use of hollowcore flooring in new buildings offers multiple benefits making it a popular choice for architects and builders looking for an efficient and effective flooring solution for modern buildings.
- Reduced weight: Hollowcore flooring is much lighter than traditional concrete flooring, reducing the weight of the building and allowing for larger spans without the need for additional support.
- Speed of construction: Precast off-site, which reduces the time needed for on-site installation. This results in faster construction times, saving time and money.
- Fire resistance: Made from concrete, which has excellent fire resistance properties. This makes it ideal for use in commercial and industrial buildings where fire safety is a top priority.
- Sound insulation: Good sound insulation properties, which can reduce noise transfer between floors.
- Durability: Highly durable and designed to withstand the test of time, providing a long-lasting flooring solution that requires little maintenance.
- Design flexibility: It can be customised to fit the specific needs of a building, allowing for greater design flexibility.
Project Example – Hilton Inn Heathrow T2
HILTON INN HEATHROW T2
|Hilton Inn T2
In October 2017, O’Reilly Concrete were awarded a £5,000,000 contract to design, manufacture and install the precast frame of a new Hilton Inn at Heathrow Terminal 2.
Work on this project consisted of 13,000m2 of hollowcore flooring, 12,500m2 of precast walls, 13,000m2 liquid screed and 80 flights of precast stairs and precast landings..
How Hollowcore Flooring is used in Modern Building Methods
Hollowcore flooring is a popular component of modern building methods. Modern building methods emphasises the use of off-site manufacturing and pre-made components to improve construction efficiency and quality. Hollowcore flooring is precast off-site in a controlled environment, and then transported to the construction site for installation.
The use of this flooring solution in modern building methods offers several benefits, including faster construction times, increased quality control, and improved safety on the construction site. By manufacturing the flooring panels off-site, construction time is reduced, as on-site construction is limited to installation. Hollowcore flooring is also highly durable and designed to withstand extreme weather conditions, making it ideal for modern buildings.
Designed and Manufactured to Fit
Our solutions are designed and manufactured to fit the specific needs of a building, allowing for greater design flexibility. The use of hollowcore flooring in modern building methods also reduces the need for on-site labour, resulting in a safer and more efficient construction site.
We design and install our hollowcore flooring in combination with other precast concrete components, such as precast walls and columns, to create a complete building system.
O’Reilly Precast hollowcore flooring solutions offers a range of benefits that improve construction efficiency and quality. Providing speed, durability, quality control, design flexibility, and reduced on-site labour, all of which are essential for successful and efficient construction projects.
