GRC in Architecture

Most ambitious designs can be created. It can be moulded to form modern futuristic designs or to replicate traditional historic features. GRC can be painted, faced with fine aggregates, coloured or simply left with a natural white or grey, smooth or textured finish.

Features and Mouldings for exteriors with GRC

Complex & intricate ambitious designs can be created. It can be moulded to form modern futuristic designs or to replicate traditional historic features. GRC can be painted, faced with fine aggregates, coloured or simply left with a natural white or grey, smooth or textured finish.

Door & Window Surrounds with GRC

Moulded GRC components such as window sills, window surrounds, cornices, door portals and columns can add decoration to residential and commercial buildings while also meeting functional needs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

GRC for Modular Building
picture

The qualities of GRC are shown to great advantage in the area of modular building. GRC panels are light and easily transported but also resistant to damage. Small units of GRC can be transported in one piece and placed in position. The strength of GRC is sufficient so that, even in thin skin construction, small modular buildings can be designed without heavy structural frames. GRC walls can incorporate thermal insulation if required, while the absence of steel reinforcement can be a benefit. Aesthetically, the full range of natural and applied finishes, and freedom of design, which characterise GRC permit solutions to satisfy any architectural requirement.

GRC in Building

Wall Cladding with GRC & its ability to be moulded into thin, lightweight panels with a wide variety of shapes, forms and surface finishes. In recent years, a shortage of skilled workers combined with the need to produce lighter weight building components has led to significant advancements in the use of prefabricated GRC elements. Builders worldwide are appreciating the increase in speed of construction that GRC provides. Furthermore, engineers are discovering that small additions of alkali resistant glass fibres can benefit the quality of traditional concrete elements, whether precast or cast in-situ. Research has shown that high-modulus alkali resistant glass fibres can help to Control cracking and improve durability.

GRC in Acoustics

GRC has found favour with acoustics engineers as a primary choice for both internal and external acoustic barriers and screens. GRC’s high density, exterior usage (being water resistant) smooth surface finish and ability to be easily moulded in the required design detail, has been used to advantage in concert halls and other auditoria. In road and railway construction, GRC noise barriers, which can either disperse or absorb sound, have provided nearby residents with a better environment. GRC not only offers functional solutions in such applications, it also gives designers the opportunity to create interesting features that enhance the aesthetics & acoustics for exteriors as well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

GRC in Landscaping
picture

Seating, planters, receptacles, kiosks, bollards, signs, statues and fountains, to name but a few, all benefit from being made in GRC with its ability to tailor shape, form and surface finish and to be aesthetically compatible with the chosen environment. GRC also provides theme park and zoological architects with a medium through which they can turn dreams into reality. Many of the world’s largest theme parks and zoos use GRC to create rocks capes, replica buildings, simulated environments for animals, and much more.

GRC in Renovation
picture

GRC is an ideal material for use in renovation. Thin lightweight panels are easy to fix and minimise the weight imposed on the existing structure. In many cases the opportunity is taken not only to improve the aesthetics of the building but also to improve the thermal and acoustic properties. GRC’s ability to be moulded and finished with natural materials means that traditional architectural forms can be maintained when required.
