Architects, engineers, builders, academics, students… we have you covered too.

The Association produces a constant supply of information across a number of platforms, which is readily available to the industry.

As well as its publications – the most notable being the Precast Concrete Handbook – National Precast also has a formidable range of other information available. From the many fact sheets that can be found on the Association’s website, a regular supply of member case studies is also available.

Another initiative, the Free Subscriber service, allows precasters, engineers, architects and contractors to sign up to receive regular electronic newsletters.

The organisation also regularly produce editorials for industry journals (such as Construction Engineering Australia, Highway Engineering Australia, Waste + Water Management, Roads & Infrastructure Australia, Built Offsite and BUILD Australia).

The Tender Service is popular for building contractors, making it easy to source prices from National Precast members, knowing they are dealing with precasters who have passed National Precast’s membership requirements.

Also available is the Find-a-Precaster service that is available on National Precast’s website, as well as the R-Value Calculator tool that calculates the thermal mass benefit of precast.

National Precast’s mission is to unite, empower, represent and promote the Australian precast industry at a national and state level, to make precast the preferred choice for sustainable construction.
