50 years experience has shown that Stresscrete has the ability
to design and manufacture virtually any precast item needed in infrastructural
Stresscrete designs and manufactures a full range of bridges
from short span farm bridges, through to medium span (6-20m) double hollowcore
bridges and major highway bridges spanning up to at least 28m. We manufacture
about 20 bridges each year.
Stresscrete can design and manufacture sizes of prestressed
concrete distribution poles to cover the full variety of situations faced
by Power Supply Authorities. These distribution poles are typically from
9 to 14m long. Holes can be provided at spacings to satisfy local requirements.
In 1986, Stresscrete won the New Zealand Concrete Society's prestressed
concrete award for the 11,000 poles that they designed and supplied for
the North Island main trunk rail electrification project. In 1992 Stresscrete's
patented process for producing hollow concrete poles won the award for that
year. Our hollow poles are typically from 15m to 23m long. Stresscrete staff
represented New Zealand on the joint standards AS/NZS 4676:2000 and 4065:2000
for the design and construction of power poles.
Stresscrete is the sole NZ manufacturer of prestressed concrete
railway sleepers and has the capacity to make over 40,000 sleepers per year
to track specification 116.
POST-TENSIONED PRECAST CONCRETE RESERVOIRS
Stresscrete has designed and manufactured the components
for precast prestressed concrete reservoir structures since the late 1960's.
Specialist post-tensioning design and supervision skills developed for bridging
during the motorway projects of the 1960's and 70's were applied to reservoir
wall construction. Design methods have been upgraded in order to satisfy
modern earthquake codes while construction improvements and stressing techniques
have been continuously modified.
Stresscrete has the ability to design and manufacture a
full range of culverts.
Stresscrete won the NZCS award in 2000 for the Manapouri
Tunnel Outlet Tailrace and tail liner.
Stresscrete won the New Zealand Concrete Society's concrete
award in 1992 for the Auckland Harbour Bridge moveable lane barriers.
We have designed and manufactured many types of retaining
walls. We have proven to be a very reliable supplier with a vast experience
and knowledge to lessen the risk in your project.
