Banagher Precast Concrete are to the industry fore in precast Marine solutions – we have designed and manufactured bespoke elements for use around the coasts of Ireland, the UK and further afield.
Supported by extensive research and many years experience we are recognised as one of the leading suppliers of precast marine solutions.
Our broad range of experience in this area includes flood defence, sea walls, breakwaters, container terminals, ferry terminals, jetty berths, piers, harbours and causeways.
Working in a marine environment often requires a unique solution – we understand that each project is dependent on the site conditions and landscape so our team of Engineers are available to collaborate with our clients to devise the best solution.
We advocate safety by design in our precast solutions – where possible we aim to provide the installation crew with a safe working deck which is especially important when working over water or in tidal areas.
Using innovative precast solutions maximises offsite construction which in turn allows the units to be placed rapidly on site to meet and exceed ambitious installation rates, increase site safety and reduce the number of personnel required.
Durability by Design
Precast concrete is ideal for use in harsh marine environments as admixtures can be adapted to combat the chloride-induced corrosion specific to a project.
Banagher Precast Concrete’s Technical Director is among a group of distinguished consultants from across Europe working together on project ReSHEALience. Started in 2018 it is a 4 year programme to develop Ultra High Durability Concrete (UHDC) & Durability Assessment-based Design (DAD) methodology.
The aim is to quantify and predict the durability of UHDC structures in different service conditions when subjected to Extremely Aggressive Exposures (EAE). Their focus will be on marine structures and infrastructures for geothermal/biomass energy plants, whose severe conditions challenge the performance, lead to quick deterioration and shorten the lifespan, resulting in billions Euro spent each year in repairs.
As industry pioneers we are committed to the continuous research & development of precast concrete in order to bring cost savings & efficiencies to our clients, to remain at the forefront of bridge beam design, to enhance the performance of concrete and structures and to seek sustainable practices which will benefit the environment and future generations to come.
