Precast concrete elements can be designed and manufactured with 3D surface finishes to achieve unique textures and/or profiles.

This can be done using specially made moulds, of any shape, which can incorporate patterns (using form liners) or use tiles, bricks, stone or void formers on the surface.

Any smooth finish (off form or polished) or rough finish (exposed aggregate, etched, blasted or honed) can also be incorporated, as can colours (using pigment, stain or paint). Techniques like bush-hammered or hammered-nib finishes can also be applied.

An advantage of using a 3D surface pattern is that the pattern can self-shade a vertical element, thereby reducing thermal conductivity from the sun.

With the use of CAD/CAM/CAE technologies the possibilities are endless.


Concrete is made from natural raw material, so while we take care to ensure you achieve the desired outcome, expect aggregate and colour variations and imperfections in precast.

Photos and samples are an indication only and can vary in colour, shape and texture, there is no guarantee that your precast project will look exactly like the sample that you have viewed.

Architects and builders, please be aware that minor patching/repairs may be required due to handling, transportation and installation- these are likely to be noticeable.
