Abstract:
Precast facades in Australia have evolved over the past 50 years from simple small panels with basic finishes to the sometimes complex panels with high quality finishes of today. There have been some problems and lessons leant over that time. As we move forward into the new millennium, ingenuity and creativity along with the appropriate skills, design and sustainability will be the key issues for precast concrete facades for the future.
