Commercial, industrial, and even residential building projects can benefit from the addition of concrete walls. One of the main benefits of precast concrete walls is they are incredibly budget-friendly. As concrete wall contractors, we perform all construction on-site – this includes building the formwork, and casting and curing the concrete. That means no hefty transportation costs are necessary.
Because concrete walls are completely customisable, many architects and building designers favour concrete construction. Each wall is purpose built specifically to meet your unique requirements.

As concrete wall contractors, we have years of experience creating, lifting, and patching concrete walls. We pride ourselves on providing the best quality concrete walls on the market. Here’s a quick overview of the process.
The first step involves the creation of the formwork, which is basically a custom-made mould on the ground. The formwork is constructed on-site out of timber and ply, the concrete wall is usually reinforced with metal, such as steel mesh. This reinforcement ensures the walls are strong and durable and will last for years to come.
When the formwork is ready to go, concrete is poured and left to set. Often we require more than one concrete wall of the same shape and size. To ensure the process is quick and space-efficient, we use a special chemical agent to separate each concrete wall. That way, we can create a stack of walls in the one formwork.
Once the concrete is cured to strength, we remove the formwork, lift the concrete walls, and position them using a crane. The entire process takes place on your property so there are no additional transportation costs involved.
As we mentioned above, one of the top benefits of concrete wall construction is the elimination of all transport fees. Here are three more benefits you should consider when deciding whether or not precast concrete wall construction is right for you:
Using a crane, we lift and position cured concrete walls. Once in place, we joint seal, and add any finishing touches to ensure a perfect, professional result. This process unfolds very quickly – sometimes within a day. It’s amazing how fast your construction site can transform.

I have been working with Simon for the previous 2 months on our industrial unit development at Molendinar. Simon always arrived ahead of time to assess the site conditions and completed all the tasks at hand in a professional manner. His management of time constraints and ability to problem solve situations was truly appreciated. In my 25 years working with tilt panel contractors, it was a pleasure to work and deal with Simon.
