Precast concrete products to assist developers meet this challenge. Precast allows unique methods of construction to be utilised for speed, versatility and cost effectiveness.
Morley Galleria Shopping Centre and Cinema Complex and Garden City Cinemas both benefited from the greater cost and time efficiency of Delta Corporation's precast concrete over traditional in-situ methods without sacrificing quality, strength or design specifications.
The development of Garden City Cinemas used precast concrete allowing the builders to store and assemble components as required, causing the least possible disturbance to the existing centre.

Delta Corporation supplied 535 planks of Deltacore flooring totalling 4500 square metres, 61 beams which measured 9.7 metres in length, basement walls up to 4.5 metres in length and 4.7 metres in height with thicknesses of 200 and 250mm, internal walls measuring 3 metres in width, 11.2 metres in height and 175mm and 200mm in thickness. The cinema complex also features precast external walls with an exposed aggregate finish.
