A PRECAST BEBO ARCH STRUCTURE WILL PROVIDE:
A HIGH QUALITY PRODUCT
Fabrication of BEBO Arch units by experienced crews in a controlled environment ensures a high quality product. Units are cast in the plant under comprehensive quality control eliminating the drawbacks imposed by weather and site conditions.
Precast BEBO Arch™ structures are highly cost competitive with cast in place structures, particularly when installed in deep fills.
QUICK AND EASY ON-SITE INSTALLATION
The installation of a BEBO Arch involves preparation of the site, casting or placement of strip footings, placement of BEBO Arch sections and final backfilling of the structure. Depending on project size, preparation of the site may be completed in a matter of hours. This preparation work may be scheduled for immediately prior to delivery of the precast units to the site. Placement of each BEBO Arch unit is carried out by crane and is a straightforward and rapid operation.
Precast fabrication of BEBO Arch units reduces the amount of work on-site and possible impact of weather on project schedules. BEBO Arch units can be preordered to allow projects to proceed on-site in early spring.
REDUCED WATER CONTROL COSTS
On projects where the work site involves a water course, a precast structure eliminates the need to maintain a dry site for the entire duration of the project to prevent damage or disruption to form work, rebar, etc. reducing water control requirements and costs.
EASE OF INSPECTION
The Purchaser has the option to inspect the BEBO Arch units at the plant prior to delivery. With cast in place structures, deficiencies such as low concrete strength represent a costly problem as the product is already in place.
Precast concrete products have all the durability advantages of high quality concrete, without the concern of breakdown of protective coatings, corrosion or other problems associated with other materials. Precast concrete culverts are a low maintenance solution.
