A cross wall construction system utilises precast, precision engineered concrete components to create a stable and structural frame.
The frame is held together by a series of vertical and horizontal ties, designed to meet progressive collapse criteria set out in the Building Regulations.
Our precast crosswall frame solution comprises structural panels forming internal and external walls along with floor slabs.
Crosswall buildings are durable, have good acoustic values and are virtually maintenance free. They are quick to erect, offering the client a rapid room occupancy programme.
The crosswall system is ideally suited to multi-storey repetitive cellular structures such as hotels, custodial, education, student accommodation, private and public housing and provides significant time and cost savings compared with traditionally built structures.
We offer crosswall solutions incorporating hollowcore floors and also solid RC units to suit specific project requirements. Window and door openings can be cast into walls using steel formers, the size and shape of which are determined by the project requirements.
Electrical conduit and sockets to carry wiring for smoke detection and lighting can also be cast into walls and solid floor slabs inside our factory. The build process can be further enhanced by the incorporation of heated floor elements cast into our solid RC flooring units.
Crosswall design solutions provide ready-to-decorate surfaces and finished floors (no screed required), reducing the need for follow-on wet trades and thereby offering a reduced on-site construction period.
