It’s All About The Finish

PRECAST CONCRETE FINISHES AND DESIGN FEATURES

When you think about a warehouse or factory, your mind immediately reverts to an image of a boring oversized ‘shed’. And in many cases that image would be correct.

Fortunately, the integration of unique elements to industrial and commercial ‘shed-like’ developments is an emerging trend – delivering some really striking outcomes.

For anyone who understands the importance of branding, you know that your brand and culture needs to be reflected in everything that you do – thus, your premises is no exception.

The traditional route was to simply apply signage to the building or fence, and maybe paint the front facade in the corporate colour. However in our experience – clients are looking for something more. The use of different materials and finishes as part of the design and construction of an industrial or commercial building, can achieve a unique look and feel; reflective of your brand.

A UNIQUE MIX

For Akura, our approach has always been to deliver buildings that are designed for the eye, budget and needs.

Our manufacturing plant has an advanced and very specific precast concrete tilt slab mix; unlike anything in Central West NSW.

The fact that we manufacture our own precast panels in-house allows for the flexibility to integrate any type of design or finish.

BESPOKE PANELS

More recently we were engaged to deliver a unique building project; constructed exclusively from precast concrete panels and structural steel.

The really interesting thing about this project was that the precast concrete panels all had a range of finishes and design elements integrated during the manufacturing process. That, coupled with the varying sizes, thicknesses and bespoke features really showcased the opportunity available to builder-developers and business owners to create an industrial development without the standard ‘shed’ look.

We’ve also integrated design features to the panels of a number of other industrial and commercial developments, using in-lay patterns, form liners, decorative false joints and polystyrene cast into the panels.

Probably the most exciting is the ability to achieve different finishes to the precast panels. Using form liners, we are able to apply a timber finish to panels for instance. Exposed aggregates is another classic finish, along with polished concrete which has definitely become popular across commercial and industrial developments within the last decade.

The magic of precast concrete panel finishes and design features is that you are really only limited by your imagination.
