Precast concrete is rapidly becoming one of the most popular forms of building in the Gold Coast. This is a result of its excellent track record over many years, and the reduced cost involved. The most prominent areas where precast concrete is used are in both major public and private developments. There are also a growing number of private contractors applying for precast concrete foundations in the greater Brisbane area. However, there is also a growing trend for other types of construction using precast concrete, including residential apartments and townhouses.
