Build like everybody is watching!
Cobute is committed to building the best structures with its precast concrete shutters for slabs, beams, stairs and edge ribs. The only question is - is it going to be your structure?
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 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.
Cobute's structural design procedure follows a holistic approach that consists of two main aspects:
Cobute conducts design for the ultimate limit state (bending and shear reinforcement) and serviceability limit state (limiting deflections)
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
