Hybrid Concrete Construction (HCC) is about providing best value in structural frames.
HCC provides simple, buildable and competitive structures that answer client demands
for better value. It meets industry requirements for increased prefabrication, increased
off-site activity, safer and faster construction and consistent performance.
Despite the challenges thrown down by the Latham2 and Egan3 reports and their
successors, the UK has been slow to realise the benefits of HCC. One of the barriers to
HCC’s more widespread use was found to be the lack of comprehensive guidance, a
situation which this publication aims to change.
Based upon work carried out under a PII research project, this publication demonstrates
how to achieve best practice. The guidance explains the benefits that result from:
■ early involvement of specialist contractors
■ using a lead frame contractor
■ using best value philosophy
■ holding planned workshops
■ measuring performance
■ trust
■ close co-operation – with an emphasis on partnering.
The guidance is supported by case studies and shows that although there are intense
periods of co-ordination during the design phase, there are tremendous rewards on site
and in use. Best value is achieved through communication and measured in terms of
buildability, construction speed, aesthetic, quality, environmental and whole-life cost
benefits.
HCC can achieve very significant cost savings and give rise to some very satisfied
clients. This publication is intended to show how this can be achieved.
