Product description:
The product covered in this EPD is a generic 1m3 of precast concrete ground beam. Concrete beams are made of cement, aggregates, water and (if needed) admixtures. In most cases the beam will be reinforced with steel bars.
The beams covered by this EPD have been manufactured through casting into preformed moulds. The dry components (a mixture of coarse and fine aggregates and cement) are thoroughly mixed before a measured amount of water is added and the mix is poured into the mould. Once demoulded, the beams are cured outside.

Primary data for the production of precast concrete beams was collected from members of the British Precast Architectural and Structural (BPAS).
