Builders’ Choice – Trade Contractor Award 2022

Hicrete Precast SA

Hicrete Precast was nominated several times by many builders as a top performing trade contractor. Their work on Synergy Construct’s GSA Student Accommodation project was very complex. The load bearing precast exoskeleton was not only structurally demanding but was the main architectural feature of the building with curved expanding and then tapering panels. The accuracy in the manufacturing and installation alignment required to achieve this result relied not only on precision design, surveying, and installation techniques, but a high level of skill from the precast manufacturer. Hicrete Precast demonstrated a high level of integrity in the way they managed the entire process.
