Cast in Concrete, a book by Susan Dawson, architect and former Working Details Editor of the AJ, will give you the knowledge on how to make the most out of the qualities of Architectural Precast Cladding. It describes how precast units are manufactured and finished, how decisions made in the design of a façade will affect the process of construction, and how to realise 'positive' procurement and fast-track construction.
This factsheet offers a calculated carbon footprint for 1 tonne of generic precast concrete used in structural and architectural applications. It also offers calculations for the carbon footprint of 1 tonne of structural precast and 1 m² of architectural cladding (with brick facing and insulation). Coming soon
This new publication will offer advice for architects and specifiers to guide them on how to specify precast cladding.
This new Code of Practice updates and combines two previous publications by the Structural Precast Association (SPA) and the Architectural Cladding Association (ACA). Coming Soon
