The PCE GT Flooring Solution

PCE Ltd has designed and developed the unique GT Flooring Solution for car parks and commercial projects.

The units offer spans of up to 18m, with pre-formed soffits and top running surface to a high specification, provide outstanding finishes, speed of construction and a robust solution.

How GT floor units contributed to the Avenue MSCP’s Hybrid construction solution »

GT flooring units can span up to 18m – and be in excess of 2m wide.

Precast units are manufactured off site, in environmentally controlled conditions.

Multi storey car parks

For  multi storey car parks, GT Flooring minimises structural depth and does not require any onsite structural topping compared to other precast concrete systems: this results in a structural weight saving of approximately 3.5 tonnes per car parking space.

Reduction in the height of the finished car park is also possible by using GT floor units, which can lead to significant savings on external architectural finishes.

Commercial developments

For commercial developments, the wet cast prestressed units have a good soffit finish that can be left exposed or directly decorated – and the production methodology allows for the inclusion of pipework into the soffits for thermal control of the buildings environment.
