GERICON the precast concrete experts

Think integrated

Efficiency increase by a factor of 4-5: Compared to in-situ concrete or brick construction, efficiency could be increased by a factor of 4-5. Through our service, the following is possible when the planning of a precast concrete plant is carried out by GERICON:

- Investment cost reduction by 5-15 %
- Increase in production by 12- 16 %
- Increase in productivity by 10- 15 %

that is millions of euros for just one large precast plant.

Up to 5 times faster: A real-life example: it takes 0.9 days to assemble a 260 m2 apartment building with precast concrete, while it takes 4.4 days with in-situ concrete. The time saving is enormous.


Industrialized construction system

Simply clever. Cleverly simple. Industrialized building requires a different way of thinking than that which currently prevails in traditional building technology with in-situ concrete or bricks. It requires thinking in terms of complex construction processes, clever detailed solutions under constantly changing conditions. It is not nearly enough to simply build a factory for prefabricated concrete parts on a greenfield site and get started. Failure would be predetermined, as examples from practice show.

Precast is a system, not a machine

The challenge of an engineering process is to anticipate difficulties ahead of construction. Only integrated planning and consulting services, from feasibility study, precast concrete design and precast concrete plant master planning to factory construction coordination and plant commissioning, guarantee the undeniable advantages of the precast concrete building system. Benefit from increased efficiency, reduced costs and increased planning flexibility and lower investment costs overall.

More than expertise and commitment 

An essential requirement concerning the engineering design of building constructions is to anticipate and prevent difficulties during the completion of the construction work, and to anticipate and solve possible problems prior to the project realization. ZPP has been doing that - for more than 40 years, nationally and internationally with a multidisciplinary approach to their engineering ideas and their processing. Both as a general planner for complex building projects and as a specialist with a view on the big picture.

Our passionate engineers from all areas of construction and divisions are used to thinking outside the box in order to achieve the maximum for our clients. We take a holistic view of our projects, which includes the immediate surroundings, the economy and the environment. In this context we also track the changes in the markets and have a strong feel for the requirements and possibilities of tomorrow.

‘Engineering Future’ is more than just a slogan to us, it summarizes our company philosophy: Civil engineering for a better, more attractive and safer future. The best performance is our goal: This is how we think. And this is how we work.
