Precast specialists since 1888
Waco offers concrete products for offshore construction, residential development, industrial and civil projects. We use modern technologies for the engineering, design and production of precast structural and architectural elements. This reduces the onsite work for our clients to a minimum.
Waco works on the new bond street ticket halls. London, UK
“One of Londons busiest public transport hubs shall soon be relieved by drawing people just a little south to the new tube station at Bond Street. This station has two new tickethalls which provide access to the Jubilee Line, the Central Line and the new Elisabeth Line. The natural stone clad superstructure of both ticket halls are produced and installed by Waco.The external appearance of both ticket halls are matched with the architecture of the surrounding buildings”
Europe’s longest jetty, located in the 7th petroleum harbor, Rotterdam
Rotterdam’s Europoort is one of the busiest ports in the world and often referred to as the (industrial) entry to Europe. The 7th Petroleum harbor includes a jetty for the Rotterdam Port Authority. Waco produced and transported the precast elements for the jetty over water. By the use of precast elements for the jetty the main contractor achieved more build / project efficiency.The jetty with a concrete deck of 650 meter is Europe’s longest.
Worldwide the most common product used to construct bridges is (reinforced) concrete. The material is known for its high performance, long-life, and versatility in forms as well as methods of construction. Whatever the requirements or the design, working with concrete means you are choosing for a cost-effective, easy to construct and quick to deliver solution. Bridges produced by Waco range from slim and elegant, to more bold and robust structures, without compromising on aesthetics.
Waco produces precast concrete (box) culverts. The culvert is a structure / tunnel that allows water to flow under a road, railroad, trail, or similar obstruction from one to the other side. The culvert can also be used as a longer artificially buried watercourse. Waco’s culverts are produced using the Dry-cast as well as the Wet-cast method. This means the concrete is either damp (near to dry) or wet and fluid when poured in the mold. Both methods have unique benefits, like time to delivery, strength and efficiency. Besides these characteristics, we also take requirements regarding the superimposed load and matching reinforcement into account.
