A Sustainable Design using reinforced concrete

sustainable design

Reinforced concrete is frequently specified for projects where sustainable design is a priority. Its thermal mass is a key component of a passive design that utilises the sun’s energy. A concrete thermal mass absorbs the sun’s energy by day and releases this heat in the cool of evening. Because reinforced concrete is also a durable material, structures are long lasting and therefore less of a strain on resources during their lifetime making an effective sustainable design.

 

Concretec New Zealand Ltd also manufactures insulated precast concrete panels that incorporate a polystyrene layer for greater thermal benefit.

 

Our business has a small carbon footprint, and we make every effort to conserve resources and minimise wastage during the manufacture of our sustainable designed reinforced concrete products.
