Leading architects from around the globe are now appreciating the qualities and properties of Glassfibre Reinforced Concrete (GRC); from the smallest embellishments to complete facades it is now becoming the material of choice for many.
Using the higher tensile properties of this concrete material, cladding can be produced with a natural appearance to replicate stone or pre cast concrete at a fraction of the weight. The reduction in weight can be continued throughout the design leading to lighter and more cost effective support systems and primary structures. The weight saving can be as much as 80% if GRC is considered from the early stages of design.
With over 30 years of experience in the design and manufacture of GRC, BCM GRC Ltd can draw on a wealth of knowledge to assist specifiers, designers and contractors on all aspects of GRC cladding, working in all areas of the construction industry BCM GRC Ltd have worked alongside the largest contractors and organisations to show real benefits and savings to the client.
