What We Do

The rib and block deck went in fantastically well and the contractors on site were very pleased at what a great practical system it is. It has been a very happy experience and my thanks for your proactive role.

We save our customers time and resources with our patented precast concrete shutters for slabs, beams, stairs and edge ribs. The systems are custom designed and manufactured, ensuring a long lasting structure.

The Cobute systems

The products have been designed and patented to support reinforced concrete monolithic structures that favour interaction between the elements so as to ensure long-term stability; more so when the system is subjected to lateral loads such as those of a seismic nature. While the systems can be designed by any Professional Engineer, Cobute can supply Engineer calculations, layout drawings, completion certificates as well as NHBRC documents through a strong network of Consulting Engineers.

The Cobute design services

Cobute's structural design procedure follows a holistic approach that consists of two main aspects:


Individual horizontal elements

Cobute conducts design for the ultimate limit state (bending and shear reinforcement) and serviceability limit state (limiting deflections)

Design-and-supply contract

Cobute offers total security in the design of the structural frame with respect to applied loads that affect the stability of the structure


Both services can be carried out internally by Cobute's in-house Structural Engineer (hence offering a one-stop shop) or externally by the Structural Engineer appointed for the job, through co-operation with Cobute's technical team
