Barfoote’s manufacturing facility is one of the most modern in Northland, and given the volume and varied work Barfoote has performed over the years, the company has developed the skills and knowledge to take on just about any concrete related task. On top of the manufacturing & delivery of precast concrete panels to locations in the Northland and Auckland regions and given Barfoote’s size and flexibility, we can prove capable site teams to erect and install panels on your behalf if required reducing expensive crane time. With over 450 m2 of steel casting tables, with ample on-site storage, no job is too large. Our site runs two 15+ tonne overhead gantries with 9 metres under the hook and 96 metres of travel.
Combined with the factory environment, if designed correctly decent economy of scales can be achieved for multiple similar panels reducing costs and turnaround time between pours.
Precast can be paired with pouring institute concrete on-site, allowing greater flexibility and rapid erection.
Precast concrete offers a number of advantages, including high-quality finishes, minimal maintenance, good thermal and acoustic performance can also be achieved, making it ideal from high-end homes to muddy paddocks.
Concrete picks up very fine details on the cast surface, so the casting off prepared steel beds provides smooth and consistent surfaces that are difficult to match without factory facilities. This can also be used to imprint aesthetic pattern finishes achieving some amazing architectural results. From woodgrains, weatherboards to logos this can be combined with exposing the aggrigrate to leave a ruff textured surface.
If concerned about how your job will look? Barfoote can a full design service, and they will even 3D render their proposed designs onto your site photographs to give peace of mind that the building sits well with the landscape. Many of Barfootes’ projects have become familiar landmarks and include warehouses, factories, office buildings and shopping complexes.
