Jointly published by National Precast Concrete Association Australia and the Concrete Institute of Australia, the Precast Concrete Handbook is neither a standard nor a textbook but rather a reference document. It recommends good practice in precast construction to designers, engineers, architects, interior designers, builders and students.
Invaluable guidance is given for those involved in the design, specification, manufacture and installation of precast concrete. All information is provided in accordance with Australian Standards and sound industry practice.
This second edition is not a substantial re-write of the first edition but is an upgrade to reflect the changes in the Building Code of Australia (BCA) and Australian Standards over the past six years. It also includes updates on new technology and technical data.
