O’Reilly Concrete’s precast columns and beams provide a flexible solution to the structural component of any project.
Precast columns and beams can be used for a number of applications from parking structures to the structural framework of high-rise commercial buildings.
They are manufactured with high-strength concrete creating a strong and durable product with no need for extra fireproofing
Precast Columns and Beams
Our precast columns and breams are available in both ‘single floor height’ and ‘double floor height’ allowing rapid building on site.
All precast columns and beams manufactured by O’Reilly Concrete are bespoke and can be designed to suit any application.
Advantages of Precast Columns and Beams
- Unlimited flexibility in design, shape and application
- Extreme durability compared to alternative building materials
- Fire retardation: concrete is a non-combustible material providing a higher degree of fire resistance than most other building materials
- Work well with other precast components, eg. wall panels and hollowcore flooring
- Provide a clean, finished look for the structural component of the building
Project Example – Media City
MEDIA CITY – MANCHESTER
|Bowmer and Kirkland Ltd
O’Reilly Concrete are working with OBR to design & manufacture the precast columns, stairs and landings for this exciting new £70m apartment development in Media City.
Media City is home to the BBC and ITV and is a mixed use development on over 200 acres.
Precast Concrete Columns and Beams
Our columns and beams are an essential component of modern methods of construction (MMC). MMC refers to the use of off-site manufacturing techniques and pre-made components to improve construction efficiency and quality. Concrete columns and beams are manufactured off-site in a controlled environment and transported to the construction site for installation.
The use of our columns and beams in MMC offers several benefits, including reduced construction time, increased quality control, and improved safety on the construction site. By manufacturing the columns and beams off-site, construction time is reduced, as on-site construction is limited to installation. Precast concrete columns and beams are also highly durable and designed to withstand extreme weather conditions, making them ideal for MMC projects.
Designed and Customised to fit
Our columns and beams are designed, manufactured and customised to fit the specific needs of a building, allowing for greater design flexibility. The use of precast concrete columns and beams in MMC also reduces the need for on-site labor, resulting in a safer and more efficient construction site.
We use our precast concrete columns and beams in combination with other precast concrete components, such as precast walls and floors, to create a complete building system. This system offers numerous benefits, including reduced construction time, improved quality control, and increased durability.
The use of precast concrete columns and beams in MMC is such a popular choice in the construction industry today as it offers a range of benefits that improve construction efficiency and quality.
