OH&S risks. Because of this, erection services can be expensive. 5 High Embodied Energy The major downside to precast concrete is its high embodied energy. However, this can be offset by its extended life cycle (up to 100 years) and high potential for reuse and relocation. Are you looking for a precast concrete expert for your next construction Project?
