- Sound Insulation: Precast Concrete floors are a dense material and greatly reduces noise between rooms and between neighboring houses.
- Durability: Precast Concrete flooring and precast concrete stairs are long-lasting and maintenance free.
- Thermal Insulation: Precast Concrete behave like a thermal storage heater, they can store thermal energy during daytime and release it back
