Demountable Construction
Most concrete constructions are built on a permanent basis because of a lack of alternative. Once the construction has served its objective and is no longer required at this site it is left unused or demolished, resulting in extra cost and waste of materials. This is not the case with Aquacast products as they are of a demountable design. This innovative method gives the choice of rigid, fast construction with the added advantage of usage on a permanent or temporary basis. It can be dismounted and stored or re-assembled in other construction projects or at a different site with considerable savings in time and material. Environmental impact and disturbance is minimal.

Coastal Erosion
Coastal erosion can be prevented using several principles dependent on the type of erosion, water current, wind direction, high water level, and most importantly, the coastal soil analysis. Taking all relevant information into consideration, government authorities are adopting methods that are known to be effective in the short-term. These methods (such as piling beaches or banks with stone or concrete pieces) take up considerable coastal surface area resulting in disused areas of beach and limited access to the coast. Often the natural environment is made unsightly which can impact on tourism and house prices in such areas.

Aquacast International believes that the best and most efficient method of reducing erosion by water is by locating water breakers in the sea at recommended distances from the coast. The principle of a marina, pier, or any decorative platform can also be incorporated, thus achieving two objectives with one construction.

Aquacast International has developed several design formations suitable for this application. The method utilises the blocks as sea breakers or water barriers to disperse water force and protect coastal areas from erosion. The design formation gives the choice of constructing marinas, jetties or service platforms for many other purposes
