With pressure on the construction industry to reduce build times, improve health and safety, and tackle labour availability issues, the benefits of precast concrete are clear.
Because precast concrete products are manufactured offsite under factory-controlled conditions, where the impact of the weather on production is limited, it is possible to achieve better and consistent quality control. It also means that construction sites are cleaner and safer places to be and require fewer wet and follow-on trades. All of these factors help clients to realise improved build quality and reduced installation times.
As an offsite manufacturer, at Bison Precast, we take a Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) approach to create bespoke precast solutions for a wide variety of projects. Pairing innovative design with high tech manufacturing capabilities, the applications for which precast concrete can be used are virtually unlimited. We are also able to work collaboratively with other contractors to allow, for example, conduits for electrical installation, underfloor heating mats and pipework to be accurately designed and cast into precast units.
Bison Precast has built a reputation for producing consistent, high quality products off site in factory-controlled conditions. Our products and processes comply with all relevant standards and are manufactured in accordance with BS EN ISO 9001. Our precast components are CE marked against BS EN 116.
We offer a full range of services to help you complete your project on time, on budget and to specification. From design and technical support to project management and installation and of course, manufacture and delivery. Whatever your starting point, our experts are on hand to help make your project a success.
Sales and estimating
From concept to completion, we can provide guidance at every stage of a project. But the best cost savings and construction times are usually achieved when we are involved from the earliest design stages, where we can specify the most appropriate Bison Precast products and solutions.
Design & technical
Our design and technical support teams are great problem solvers. They can provide their valued engineering input throughout the process to make sure you always have the most efficient and cost-effective solution.
Our experienced project management team is available to provide reassuring practical and professional support. Their skills and expertise in planning, organising, securing and managing resources have brought about the successful completion of many projects.
Bison Precast is a leading exponent of offsite manufacture. In adopting a Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) approach, we produce consistent, high quality products in factory-controlled conditions to help clients to realise cheaper, faster and safer builds.
Because we operate from two, strategically located manufacturing facilities, we are able to deliver to most sites within a relatively short timeframe. In addition to our own vehicles, we have formed long-term relationships with trusted logistics partners, giving us exceptional depth of experience and capability in the delivery of products nationwide to meet even the most demanding project programmes.
Our regionally based contracts team provides practical, hands-on support at a local level, helping you to implement your project in the safest and most efficient way.
