Architectural concrete is fast becoming a modern and innovative trend in contemporary architecture. Whether it is from museums to concert halls, or from stadiums to bridges, architectural concrete is the latest and trendiest feature in construction. Architectural concrete not only possesses aesthetic value, but it is also a useful and modern solution for economic and civil engineering reasons.
Due to its versatile properties, architectural concrete is arguably the most useful building material. Therefore, architectural concrete is utilised for most contemporary construction tasks. Through the adaptable and fluid capacities of fresh concrete, most shapes or forms can be economically constructed and built.
Guggenheim Museum, L’Astrada Concert Hall, Ganter Bridge. All impressive and majestic structures, and what do they have in common? They are casted in concrete. Even though we may not be able to replicate the same imposing magnitude in Tacoma, we will not shy away from delivering remarkable and exceptional results! Architectural concrete can be utilised for most construction tasks, both commercial and residential. If you wish to have an urban and minimalistic aesthetic added to your building, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Types of Casts
We are able to provide a choice of cast stones for our architectural concrete projects. Customers can choose between semi-dry cast stone or wet cast stone. Our semi-dry cast stone provides the aesthetic appearance of natural stonework. Structures that have been built using our semi-dry cast stone, in previous projects, have included: columns, corbels, porticos, pavilions and date stones. Our wet cast stone provides a smoothing surface texture that is both durable and sophisticated. There are very little options, in terms of building materials, that provides both aesthetic appeal as well as structural support. With both choices of casts, we are able to meet most construction demands with additional attributes of durability, versatility and cost-effectiveness.
Additionally, we are also able to provide architectural precast concrete. Our architectural precast concrete typically suits more commercial spaces, due to the demand of more innovative, complex and intricate construction projects. The utilisation of our tailor-made architectural concrete delivers a product that is both structurally self-supporting as well as outstandingly designed. We are proud to announce that the commission of our architectural precast concrete services possesses notable characteristics of being economical, adaptable and environmentally friendly.
At Tacoma Concrete Stamping, we endeavor to deliver you with the best. When we are crafting our architectural concrete, we keep in mind factors and risks that may negatively affect and impact our end products. We ensure to avoid the appearance of pores and crevices that may be worsened by exposure to the elements, and implement fungicides, anti-bacterial products and sealants to avoid leakages and mold infestations. We also add additional layers of concrete to avoid any damage to the integral and underlying metalwork of the structures. Our specialised resin, varnishes, sealants and water-proofing tools allow us to ensure that our projects are kept in optimum state for as long as possible.
