Residential precast panels, Geelong
With the house trends in Australia changing, the appearances of our homes are adapting and the modern look housing has changed the way we design and think about the products we use. With more design criteria to meet and council obligations imposed it makes it harder to get the design right. Some of the biggest design challenges facing modern Australian house designers is the Green Star rating increasing constantly and the fire rating of the products used and retaining values as we start to search for the best views. Concrete panelling is a major plus in all of these for residntial housing with the ability to manipulate design to accommodate different walling types for different applications we can design what ever is required. Precast concrete panels for housing and residential projects is beggining to get a foothold in what has been an industry that has remained quite traditional and resistant to change.

The biggest plus to precast panelling in house design is the thermal properties, unfortunately 9 times out of 10 this aspect of concrete is over looked or traded for appearance reasons only. With the use of high density polystyrene you can upgrade your walling to a highly efficient heat retention source. The use of the twin skin or “sandwich panel” system is the break between layers of the wall that stops the transfer of the hot to cold external temperatures whilst maintaining an even temperature inside. Thermal concrete can hold even temperatures inside for up to a week without the need for heating / cooling.
