Using lightweight concrete significantly reduces the overall volumes of concrete and reinforcement steel needed in the construction of tall buildings.

 

But does this reduction compensate for the higher cost of lightweight concrete?

To answer this question, we commissioned an independent comparative modelling study of reinforced concrete framed towers of 15, 30 and 45 storeys.

An independent engineering study shows lightweight concrete is quicker, cheaper and greener than normal weight, when used in reinforced concrete towers.
