Flood Precast Hollowcore Flooring

Building the Future at Drumalee GAA with Flood Precast Hollowcore Flooring

Flood Precast provided 200mm of Hollowcore flooring and precast stairs to Tully Developments who we’re the main contractors on the new clubhouse. Flood Precast Hollowcore Flooring units are machine cast concrete slabs, with tubular voids extending the full length of each slab, creating a lightweight building unit, saving money on materials and transport costs.

 

Flood Precast Hollowcore Flooring

We provided 280 m2 of 200mm Hollowcore and 2no Precast Stairs. Our flooring and precast stairs are designed for quick installation, to significantly increase build efficiency, and to provide high levels of construction strength and quality.

Precast Concrete Hollowcore floors offer many advantages over alternative flooring methods like metaldeck, in-situ and timber. Prestressed Hollowcore floors are fast to erect and are a great choice of flooring system for the construction of:

  • Hotels
  • Apartments
  • Office Blocks
  • Car Parks
  • Industrial Buildings
  • Sports Clubs
