With a lifecycle of 50+ years precast concrete pipes are better for the environment. They protect drinking water, drainage and sanitation systems. By containment, reduces risk of flooding, leaching of harmful chemicals and erosion. Natural resources are used in the production of concrete and steel reinforcement is sourced from steel scrap. Precast concrete is manufactured in a controlled environment efficiencies and waste are improved every year. Precast concrete is resilient to the elements and climate change.
