Bespoke precast concrete case studies

Our bespoke precast concrete projects team offers a comprehensive service from design through to finish, providing a wide range of solutions for many different precast projects.

Every construction project is different, which is why we established our bespoke concrete division back in 2009. Working directly with the client, or in partnership with other companies, we specialise in the design, manufacture and installation of precast concrete units, which are custom made to your specification.

With a dedicated design team and mould manufacturing facilities on-site, we are able to produce a wide range of precast concrete components that are completely bespoke to your construction project.

We can mass produce concrete units for any construction project or produce individual one-off components for smaller jobs.

Examples of bespoke precast components we have created include: precast concrete slabs for multi-storey car parks, wall panels for sea defence schemes, concrete stairs and seating for civil regeneration projects, concrete units and copings for the rail industry and plinths for charity trails.
