01 CONCRETE. DESIGN AND BUILD WITH CONFIDENCE
Concrete is the world’s most popular building material. It allows you to design and build with complete confidence.
Concrete is fluid and can be engineered and formed to your exact design and then sets strong for life.
Its free-form versatility allows you to design homes with endless possibilities in a wide range of environments. It enables your design to be built on steep sites or cliff-tops and in locations where others might not think it was possible to build your home.
Concrete helps reduce your risk because it is locally produced, easy to obtain and uses local skills.
Those involved in construction are experienced with concrete providing added confidence for efficient engineering & design, scheduling, placement, and fast project completion with minimal on-site wastage.
Concrete’s consistent performance means it is easy to meet standards and codes providing peace-of-mind.
With concrete, you can be confident you are working with one of the world’s most flexible, versatile, and trusted construction materials.
02 CONCRETE. SUSTAINABLE FOR LIFE
Across its life, concrete is a remarkably sustainable construction material, from the sourcing of materials through to design, building use and end-of-life reuse or recycling.
Concrete is locally manufactured which supports the local industry, community, and employment and is highly efficient with minimal onsite waste which reduces the impact of transportation.
Concrete is 100% recyclable and uses recycled materials in manufacture. It naturally absorbs carbon from the atmosphere throughout its life, with Global studies demonstrating up to one third of the original CO2 emissions re-absorbed.
Concrete is increasingly manufactured utilising materials that would otherwise go to waste, such as fly ash from electricity generation and blast furnace slag from steel making, all helping to reduce carbon emissions and waste. Recycled aggregates are also used where feasible, reducing the demand for natural resources.
Because of its excellent thermal mass, Concrete homes provide more stable and comfortable internal temperatures resulting in reduced energy costs and emissions over the life of your structure. Importantly, this thermal mass goes a long way to allowing home builders to achieve the highest energy rating.
Concrete’s natural aesthetic, thermal and acoustic properties save on the need for additional finishing such as floor coverings, wall linings, insulation, and fire protection. And it provides a naturally beautiful finish for low maintenance walls and external elements.
Concrete is a sustainable material that is good to live with for its entire life.
03 CONCRETE. SOLID, SAFE AND LASTING
With Concrete you are Futureproofing Your Build and Futureproofing Australia.
Concrete is Australia’s locally manufactured, proven, durable and resilient construction material that just gets stronger over time.
Concrete is a safe and secure construction choice. Concrete is futureproof against natural deterioration, extremes of weather and climate and the ravages of fires, floods and cyclones.
Importantly, concrete is resistant to termites and remains virtually maintenance free.
Concrete offers excellent fire resistance, it does not burn, emits no toxic fumes and when exposed to fire has a slow rate of heat transfer.
With concrete you know you are building something that is safe and solid, not only for today but for future generations to come.
