We make the sample from mixes that we have made before, adjusting the constituents to get a close match to the required colour and tone. It did not take long for the architect to choose the sample colour and the aggregate texture for the surface finish. We then made a full-scale mock-up. We have a number of different aggregates, cements and pigments held in silos at our precast plant. There are 32 components which is unusually high for a precast manufacturer. We keep this range of materials because we supply a wide variety of decorative finishes for architectural concrete, both as sandwich panels and single-skin fascia units.

There are 32 components which is unusually high for a precast manufacturer. We keep this range of materials because we supply a wide variety of decorative finishes for architectural concrete, both as sandwich panels and single-skin fascia units.
