MAIN CONTRACTOR Roger Fahey
ENGINEER Patrick J. Newell Consulting Engineers

Our precast portal frame solution is ideally suited to General Purpose and Sports Halls. Long clear spans can easily be achieved with the prestressed T4 roof beams. Self-compacting concrete, used in conjunction with our adjustable steel moulds, ensures excellent surface finish. This allows for the columns to be left exposed / flush with the blockwork, if required. The 50N concrete provides excellent inherent fire and durability characteristics.


For this project we provided:

  • 18no. 10.5m high columns

  • T4 prestressed roof beams

  • A clear internal space of over 21m x 36m

  • Precast gutters and

  • Preinstalled sockets for roof purlins
