Chinese Baoye Group continues to invest in precast concrete production
The Chinese Baoye Group has built yet another precast concrete plant in Quzhou, 800 km southwest of Shanghai. Baoye will produce double walls and floor slabs of up to 700,000 square meters per year for mega-residential projects. At the heart is the latest plant technology from Vollert, a concrete plant specialist, while the focus is put on China’s hot topics, resource efficiency and environmental protection and prefab architecture as a sustainable building system.
Brazilian MARNA Pré-fabricados modernises stair production
The Brazilian MARNA Pré-fabricados Group has continuously concentrated on precast element architecture since 2008. The stair production has now been extensively modernized with a VARIOSTEP stair mould 170-17 from Vollert's special product range.
bétons feidt creates special architecture in concrete
Precast architecture is modern and different. Numerous building projects worldwide prove that. It now has very little to do with standards and norms. One of the long-standing leaders among the manufacturers of such precast elements is the concrete specialist bétons feidt from Luxembourg. Vollert technology plays a big part in this.
Earthquake-proof construction systems on a precast basis significantly change the face of Uzbekistan
The face of Tashkent as the capital of Uzbekistan is subject to constant change. The city with more than 2 million inhabitants has been the political, cultural as well as the economic center of the former Soviet state since the 1990s. New residential buildings are constructed as quickly as modern shopping malls, hospitals and universities – those projects are subject to precast architecture, also due to their high earthquake resistance.
Bangalore’s Sobha Ltd. is among the fastest-growing backward integrated property developers in India with more than 360 construction projects completed. In 2015 Sobha set the next milestone in the company‘s history with the installation of the largest onsite precast plant in India in Bangalore with German technology by Vollert. The residential construction project Sobha Dream Acres is now the first construction project implemented that is fully based on prefabricated elements.
Shanghai Baoye relies on state-of-the-art precast construction technology
Precast construction technology has a long tradition of nearly 60 years in China. The boom was brought to a sudden stop in the 1990s, however, by a lack of state subsidies and components of inferior quality. This has changed today, with state-of-the-art precast architecture, the importance of environmental and resource protection, as well as new industrialised manufacturing methods. Chinese builders such as Shanghai Baoye group invest in state-of-the-art machinery and plant technology.
Belgian Cordeel Group becomes a key player of the European construction industry
Belgian Cordeel Group is a nationally leading construction company. The general contractor implements diverse building projects, from exclusive apartment facilities to logistics or industrial parks, modern shopping malls, hospitals, schools or infrastructure projects such as bridges. With the new precast concrete plant in Temse, Cordeel has finally become one of the large key players in Europe.
BauMax is developing a precast construction system for residential buildings in Chile
A newly developed precast construction system has now conquered Chile. In addition to seismic stability, it offers shorter construction times and higher building quality. Serial production of the new house type has started.
Twins usually come in pairs: Thai SCG Group invests in modern precast concrete production
Since the 1970s, Thailand has experienced a rapid economic boom. This path was cut in a much shorter period of time than in other countries like Taiwan or South Korea. And in spite of current political instability, the demand for real estate in the cities remains uninterrupted. Furthermore, rural regions are also being increasingly utilised for low-cost living space. The national construction industry in Thailand has recognised this and continues to invest in the most modern technology for precast concrete production, including the SCG Group.
Precast concrete elements for Brazil’s construction industry
In future M3SP will produce up to 400,000 m² of solid concrete elements annually for the Brazilian market. One of the most modern precast plants in South America has been built for this in Cotia near São Paulo.
From the 3D building model to the production-stage precast concrete element: know-how and plant technology for Kazakhstan’s building industry
With an area of 2,724,900 km², Kazakhstan is the ninth-largest country in the world. As a developing country with average economic growth of nearly 10 % (since 1999), Kazakhstan excels in central Asia and leaves most other countries in this region far behind. The economic development is also stimulating the building boom. The demand for property in the large cities has not let up in the last ten years and continues to develop progressively. This is simultaneously accompanied by the cost-effective production of precast concrete elements.
With average temperatures of between 20 and 30 °C as well as fantastic beaches and diving areas, New Caledonia - the French archipelago in the South Pacific, situated 2,000 km east of the Australian coast - is one of the most popular holiday destinations worldwide. The 250,000 inhabitants live predominantly from tourism and the mining industry. The focus is placed on precast construction for the development of new buildings for residential areas and public institutions as well as new tourism projects. Architecturally appealing houses and multi-storey residential buildings are to be built as well as hospitals, schools, complete hotel complexes and industrial workshops. The precast plant of the New Caledonian LBDP Group, completed in April 2014, will in future produce floor slabs and double and sandwich walls as well as beams and columns for hall buildings.
The Indian construction company Precast India Infrastructures Pvt Ltd. has responded to the high demand from the local construction industry for solid walls, solid floors and floor slabs by opening a new production plant. The state-of-the-art pallet circulation system in the city of Pune in Western India is designed for an hourly production capacity of up to 120 m² precast concrete parts. The production technology was supplied by the plant engineering specialist Vollert Anlagenbau from Germany. The plant has been planned to cater for further expansion at a later date, with the addition of further product lines such as double walls.
