Question mark

Did you know?

Fact 3

During its lifetime Precast concrete will effectively re-absorb much of the carbon dioxide that was used to create it in the first place. Precast units, aggregate blocks and aircrete will ultimately re-absorb the CO2 used to create them.  See more on Tarmac Topfloor for information on staircases used in the house build.
