The benefits of concrete floors for residential development are well established, providing robust, weather and fire-resistant platforms during construction that are easily transformed into effective means of fire and noise separation between apartments and within dwellings. Concrete floors also offer inbuilt durability and resilience to overheating, flooding and rot. This webinar explores the range of precast concrete flooring solutions available for housing and provides guidance for design. Applications include separating and ground floors, but also upper floors within dwellings to offer further benefits to the construction of healthy, comfortable homes.
