Production line for housing units

The walls and floors are cast upside-down in a tunnel formwork

After stripping they are turned 180° and transported to a finishing line. The precast divider walls and the precast roof are installed on this line. Both in the tunnel form and on the finishing line, the elements are positioned in the sequence in which they will be assembled on site.

On both 9,6m long tunnel forms, 6 elements of 3m length can be cast every day. 

The units weight 10,4T and have the following properties:

  • L 3080mm x W 5720mm x H 2900mm
