Why Us - See Our Product Installation Benefits

 

DesignStone’s modular elements are smaller, & lighter in weight in comparison to other products claiming high performance enabling DesignStone structures to be erected quickly without the use of specialized heavy lifting or specialized machinery. DesignStone is delivered to the job site in a modular format, this means no cutting ultimately enhancing the speed of construction. Additionally, the DesignStone precast panels are a face finished product, this eliminates the need for other contractors or materials to finish the building envelope, unlike most other precast building techniques.

 

DESIGNSTONE IS A COMPLETE SYSTEM

DesignStone is a face finished product, that is, once installed our resilient precast external façade is considered finished.

Other resilient concrete wall systems require external cladding to be installed, for the builder, this means an extended construction duration. 

 

DESIGNSTONE IS INSTALLED EASILY

DesignStone can be installed without specialised concrete machinery or heavy lifting equipment.

Other resilient concrete wall systems require specialised concrete pumps to place the concrete core-fill, this is done over several days adding significant cost to the project. Concrete pumps and heavy lifting equipment in some instances deem projects non-viable should the project be in a rural, hard to get to locations.

DESIGNSTONE IS SIMILAR TO TRADITIONAL FRAMING

DesignStone`s electrical, gas, water, and HVAC (services) are installed in a manner similar to traditional framing. methods. 

Other resilient concrete wall systems require services to pre-identified or manually chased on location.

DESIGNSTONE IS BRACED BY WAY OF INTERNAL WALLS

DesignStone`s installation methodology is like traditional framing methods and relies only on internal walls for bracing. 

Other resilient concrete wall systems rely on specialised temporary bracing to be installed and in some instances re-installed as the wall gains height.

DESIGNSTONE IS SUPPLIED AS A COMPLETE KIT

DesignStone is a complete wall system comprising of an external cladding and a structural load-bearing concrete core-filled framing system.

Other resilient concrete wall systems are typically load-bearing structures only.

Fast, dry and clean erection, reduced scaffold hire, early lock-up and finishing, all reinforce major economies in hoisting and handling. This can mean substantial savings of interest on bridging finance, of rent for temporary accommodation, as well as through earlier commencement of income flow from investment properties.
