Architectural concrete Brisbane
Concrete is often considered a drab grey material relegated to remaining underfoot, or as something to be hidden away by other structural features.
However, in contemporary architectural design, this humble but versatile construction staple, with thousands of years of history, has had the vindication it most definitely deserves.
Decorative and structural concrete can be utilised to create stunning architectural masterpieces.
Concrete reigns supreme in versatility and moldability without compromising structural integrity, allowing for striking lines and seamless curvatures, while offering a sense of class and prestige.
Concrete is not only strong and durable; it also offers a wide range of other functional and ecological benefits. Architectural concrete truly is the product of our past, that is perfect for our planet’s future.

Benefits of Architectural Concrete
Aside from concrete’s vast array of design possibilities, it provides a range of other unique properties that make it an ideal architectural construction material.
Because concrete is in a semi-liquid form before it is poured, it gives designers the freedom to create custom textures and patterns that can be imprinted on the facia or internal spaces before construction is even started.
Excellent Thermal insulator
Concrete’s density makes it an ideal insulator. Due to its thermal mass, concrete keeps the heat in during cold seasons and keeps the heat out in the hotter weather.
This is not only a perfect situation for occupants, but it is also more energy-efficient, helping to reduce energy consumption and overheads, while also helping to reduce carbon emissions.
Vibration and Sound insulation
In the same way that concrete’s density helps to insulate in the hot and cold, so it is perfect for dampening sound and vibration. Its dampening qualities are as effective from inside out, as they are outside in.
This makes it perfect for venues looking to reduce noise spill during events, as well as for residential or multi-residential developments looking to reduce traffic noise in busy areas or the Brisbane CBD.
Architectural concrete offers a vast array of other useful qualities, also, both ecological and economical.
This impressive list of benefits could place concrete on top of the list of most versatile and sustainable building materials in the world, and the best part is, it can be reused, over and over again.
