WASTE FREE

Virtually waste free, the Modular Precast System’s thin wall technology utilizes lean manufacturing processes incorporating precise control of mix quantity, formulations, materials and labor input.
Uses less energy than either structural steel frame components or glass curtain walling.
Recycled materials such as fly ash, slag cement and concrete wash-water can be incorporated into the concrete mix. On site construction creates less air pollution, noise and debris as well as eliminating energy intensive double handling and haulage.

FASTER

The modular precast system delivers construction times up to 50% faster than conventional superstructure systems that utilize cast concrete, blockwork, and render. Also, it is ideal for large and repetitions’ projects where onsite manufacturing delivers optimum benefits.

 

STRONGER

The inherent load-bearing strength of each module means that multi-level constructions of up to 6 stories can be economically and more safely achieved than using tilt slab or traditional practices.
The system provides a highly flexible precast building system that is strong, durable, fire, termite, cyclone, water, and bullet proof.

THERMAL AND ACOUSTIC

The thermal and acoustic qualities of the modules are tremendous, with insulation being embedded within each external wall. High-tech external finishes such as Energy Star™ paint can further enhance efficiencies. When 2 modules are fixed together, a 20mm gap is left between them and sealed at all joints; the subsequent internal wall comprises two, 90mm skins of concrete with a 20mm internal air gap giving an acoustic rating of Rw60.

CHEAPER

On-site production facilities utilize reusable automated molds that can be adjusted to fit a range of openings and designated wall penetrations.

 

Moreover, on-site factory controlled fit­outs such as windows, doors, joinery,
and insulation can be pre-installed. Also, painting can be done prior to installation to reduce on-site labor and construction costs.

DESIGN FLEXIBILITY

The Modular Precast System allows wall, door, window and ceiling openings to suit design requirements, and modules can be arranged to create multilevel design structures.
MPS is perfect for repetitious building projects such as: Villas, Apartment Buildings, Hotels, Labor Camps, Schools, Hospitals, Military/Student Accommodation Projects …

The Modular Precast System provides architects and developers with endless design options with facilities that can be pre-molded into each module. The modules are assembled on site according to the plans while the rest of the structure is added (roofing, facade decoration, flooring, plumbing, and finishing touches).

6

RELOCATABLE

Both the Modular Precast System manufacturing plants and the individual modules can be sustainably relocated to another site with a under a time interval of more than 50 years.
THE MANUFACTURED UNITS ARE VERY STABLE RECTANGULAR STRUCTURES WITH THEIR CENTER OF GRAVITY JUST OVER HALF WAY UP THEIR HEIGHT. THIS IS AFFECTED BY THE AMOUNT AND CONFIGURATION OF OPENINGS FOR DOORS AND WINDOWS.
Each unit during the shop drawing phase has its own specific center of gravity calculated and located on the shop drawing so that the lifting points can be positioned to ensure that the modules lift well from the mold and are easy to install.

PROCESS

MPS uses a unique and simple construction process that is more efficient than other conventional precast system.

The process involves on-site mold construction with a high level of accuracy.

The mold can be constructed to fit various dimensions depending on the given project. Steel reinforcement, thermal and acoustic insulation, and MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) are then placed into the mold. Once every detail is put into place, concrete is then casted throughout the mold and
up to ten-hour interval is given for the curing process to reach its final state.

COMPARISON

MODULAR PRECAST SYSTEM

 

BUILD CONCEPT

► Cast complete rooms in one piece with no joints
► Full moment capacity to vertical and horizontal corners
► Install in one lift

 

ONSITE PRODUCTION

► Cast walls and floors monolithically, equivalent to a minimum of 5 and up to 14 flat pieces
► No brackets, props, or vertical joints per room

 

INSTALLATION

► One heavy lift, no propping, no levelling, minimal site fittings and brackets, dowels …
► Joints are between molds only
► Solid working platforms are immediately available for subsequent levels
without back propping
► Can erect four levels in the same day
► Precise accuracy due to monolithic construction and automated formwork

COMPARISON

CONVENTIONAL PRECAST SYSTEM

 

BUILD CONCEPT

► Five flat elements cast and installed
► individually and requiring numerous joints, brackets, and grouting

 

FACTORY PRODUCTION

► Larger area required: tables and
equipment for equivalent production
► Numerous number of vertical joints

 

INSTALLATION

► Multiple small lifts
► Individual propping and levelling
► Less accuracy resulting from small individual pieces with accumulating errors in level and line
► No immediate working platform until all jointing is completed
► Delays in processing to subsequent lifts
► Props, ladders, bolts, and brackets
► Difficult to erect more than 1-2 levels per day

TECHNICAL INFORMATION

The concrete used in the production of the modules is a minimum of 40 MPa, low shrinkage, super-plasticized mix with steel reinforcement. Class 1 finishes are achieved on all internal and external surfaces, which are suitable for direct finish application.

Maintenance and operating costs are low.

Precast concrete is more durable than other materials; it is fire-proof, termite-proof, and water-proof.

The superior finishes MPS achieve show that the concrete may be left in its natural state and not finished, painted, or covered at all.
