As a compliment to the various types of precast bridge components Proform currently manufactures, we also design, manufacture and install prestressed bridge components designed to support decks and loads of all types. The durability, cost effectiveness and low-maintenance benefits of precast concrete makes it ideal in many bridge applications.
While there are many ways to construct a bridge, precast concrete components are integral in expediting the construction schedule and reducing construction costs in a region like Alberta. Precast concrete reduces the time on site, construction heating and hoarding costs and, for all intents and purposes, is a finished product moments after being installed.
Bridges that contain precast concrete fall into 4 main categories B1, B2, B3, and B4 based on the Canadian Precast Concrete Quality Assurance Certification Program (CPCQA). Proform Construction Products is one of 3 manufacturers in Alberta that are certified as a B3, prestressed straight-strand bridge members.
