Why concrete in Canberra?
Concrete has been a building material for as long as men have been erecting buildings (even the ancient Romans used concrete). It’s more durable than any other surface and appropriate for anything from a warehouse floor or hard-working driveway to an elegant foyer or pool deck of a luxury resort, and won't burden building owners with constant repair and maintenance costs.When it's built with concrete, it's built to last and it is a material that gains strength over time.
Concrete also provides one of the most efficient and cost-effective means of constructing energy-efficient structures. Heavy frame buildings (concrete) generate average energy savings of 20% to 25% over light frame buildings (wood). Interior concrete floors help keep rooms cool in summer and warm in winter by holding temperature and slowly releasing heat or coolness, saving utility costs.
Concrete is safe, secure and healthy for building occupants. Being an inert construction material, concrete does not burn; it also does not feed rot and provides excellent indoor air quality. Superior quality of construction helps prevent the entry of pollen, dust and other airborne pollutants.
If you want to be environmentally-conscious you look for durable building materials that leave the smallest environmental footprint. Produced from locally available, abundant materials, concrete's long lifespan helps make it the most responsible choice for a sustainable future. In concrete's life cycle, recycling is present from start to finish.
