Echo's total solution approach

Well-informed construction professionals are placing increasing reliance on Echo’s precast hollow-core flooring and concrete slab technology. We’ve been manufacturing hollow-core panels- both prestressed and reinforced – to the highest international standards for three decades and we service South Africa’s major construction markets from our precast concrete plants in Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg.

Cost and time savings and Echo’s Total-Solution approach are prime sales features. So are aesthetics, structural integrity and hassle-free construction.

Our involvement begins with the drawing board and ends with the finished product, be it a multi-storey building using prestressed hollow-core flooring, concrete-slab roofing, prefabricated concrete walling, or security walling using heavy-duty concrete slabs.

This entails our working in close cooperation with architects, structural engineers, quantity surveyors and other construction professionals to prepare well-integrated and professionally engineered building strategies which satisfy all critical criteria and deliver superior concrete structures – within budget and on time.
