Singapore relies on precast concrete elements

Highly automated factories producing precast concrete elements have been initiated by the state to increase usage of precast concrete in Singapore construction industry. The slogan: out with time-consuming and labour-intensive traditional construction methods, in with maximum pre-fabrication. Straits Construction Group, one of the largest construction companies in Singapore recently commissioned such a plant. It produces not just wall and floor panels, but also pre-stressed solid slabs and 3D kitchen and bathroom modules - all this on several levels. The associated plant and software solutions have been developed by companies in the Progress Group. The subsidiary company, Ebawe Anlagentechnik assumed the principal responsibility for the overall concept and installation.
