Robust & Secure

Concrete will not rot, rust or corrode.  In fact, concrete actually gets stronger throughout its life.  Reinforced concrete, with its capacity to accommodate alternative load paths, is ideally suited to New Zealand’s seismic conditions.

Concrete’s high resistance to wear means less maintenance, which is particularly important as the consequences of global warming have led to more extreme weather patterns.  In certain regions of the world, concrete’s ability to withstand increasingly severe storm events has led to a surge in concrete construction.

In the path of unpredictable and violent climatic conditions, concrete buildings offer their inhabitants added security from debris.  Concrete’s virtual impenetrability also contributes to community and personal safety, as it can withstand willful damage and resist arson.
