Abstract:
This paper focuses on the total engineering requirement of precast concrete and in particular the guidance provided concerning precast panels via AS3850-2003 Tilt-up Concrete Construction. Not only will skilled engineering input help to deliver the many benefits of precast concrete, without it the risks to safety and commercial viability can be enormous. The demand for precast concrete generally, and for panels specifically, has expanded many traditional boundaries within the structural concrete industry for design and construction civil engineers. In particular the issues related to lifting and bracing of precast are considered and risk management concepts are also applied to improve the likelihood of success and minimize adverse risk.
