Our wide range of sustainable concrete solutions include:

  • cc 1

    PanU-LITE ™

    PanU was the first in Singapore to supply this special lightweight concrete for structural use as a roof in 2006. This was Changi Airport Terminal 3, for which we were also the sole RMC supplier for the entire terminal. Besides being lightweight, it also demonstrates excellent thermal and sound insulation properties, thus saving on manpower, energy costs and needing less concrete. Construction costs are ultimately reduced as the building has a lighter loading using PanU-LITETM.

    The vast lightweight roof and the entire Changi Airport Terminal 3 is made of PanU-LITETM concrete. The lightness of the roof makes it possible for the terminal to be designed with slimmer and less pillars placed further apart. This enhances T3’s spacious high-roofed ambience and creates more useable gross floor area.

    Underwater Concrete

    Ideal for building waterfront structures and bridges with underwater columns and pile caps.

    The builders of Singapore's Helix Bridge had approached us to develop concrete that can be ‘cast’ underwater to withstand the changing tides. We developed this special concrete that can be poured into bridge columns or caissons, displacing water in the process. It then hardens naturally in the water. This underwater concrete eliminates the preparatory stage of pumping out sea water to create the air space, saving considerable costs and time.

    Coloured Concrete

    This special concrete can be coloured and embellished with decorative stones for aesthetic effect. It requires low maintenance and is ideal for paths, carparks, low-traffic roads and public areas. It has been put to good industrial use at Jurong Island to mark essential services lines on the ground, for safety and easier maintenance.

    The Singapore History Museum, Gardens by the Bay and the F1 race circuit use PanU coloured concrete.

    Green and Eco Concrete*

    PanU is the biggest supplier of Green Concrete and Eco Concrete in Singapore, and one of the first to launch them in 2007. More than one-fifth of the raw materials for these products are made up of recycled or cementitious materials. Using them to produce concrete consumes less energy and lowers the carbon emission footprint by up to 45%, compared with concrete produced with natural raw materials. Green Concrete is also longer-lasting and stronger than normal concrete.

    Our green concrete is used in many award-winning sustainable projects, among them Gardens by the Bay and Tampines Concourse, the first carbon-neutral building in Singapore.

    *Green Label-certified by the Singapore Environment Council. Approved by the Building & Construction Authority of Singapore (BCA).

    Shotcrete

    Shotcrete is short for ‘shooting concrete’. Unlike normal concrete that is cast in a mould, shotcrete is mechanically or manually sprayed onto the surface of a structure. It is used in challenging conditions when the work area is difficult to access, such as in tunnels and underground facilities.

    The Fort Canning Tunnel was the first PanU shotcrete project. It is the longest tunnel in Southeast Asia to be built with a shotcrete sprayed lining. Other projects include the Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway (KPE) and the Marina Coastal Expressway (MCE), in which we supplied nearly 90 per cent of the shotcrete. Some of our other notable shotcrete projects include the Jurong and Mandai Rock Caverns, and Bedok Residences.

    Liquefied Soil Stabiliser (LSS)

    A strong, durable water-resistant substitute for low-strength concrete. Used as a stable replacement for compacted soil. Significant cost savings can be accrued from its easy application and low maintenance. It flows easily, does not need labour to do compacting or leveling work, and has minimal shrinkage. Can be recycled and easily replaced.

    LSS is widely used for grouting, improving soil stability and in public areas such as pavements. Projects using PanU LSS include the Downtown Line, Marina Coastal Expressway (MCE), Circle Line, The Nex retail mall and Jurong Gateway.

    High-Strength Concrete

    This concrete is a cost-effective solution to many structural issues faced in developing high-rise buildings and long-span bridges. The stronger concrete carries loads more efficiently with a lower volume of concrete. It enables higher productivity and shorter construction periods.

    Asia Square, Fusionopolis, Interlace, Parkroyal on Pickering hotel, the Pinnacle and the Sail are among the numerous projects that use PanU’s high-strength concrete. We were the sole supplier for most of these projects.

    Self-Compacting Concrete

    Self-Compacting Concrete (SCC) flows easily under the force of gravity and fills all irregular voids without the use of mechanical compactors which vibrate and produce high noise levels. It saves on manpower to spread and compact the concrete by 70 percent and cuts down the application time by 40 per cent. SCC reduces noise pollution by 15 per cent, making it ideal for development projects close to residential areas.

    Some SCC projects include Marina Bay Financial Centre, South Beach Lifestyle Quarter, Parkroyal on Pickering, V on Shenton, Tanjong Pagar Centre, Esparina Residences, Urban Vista and HDB housing.

    Temperature-Controlled Concrete

    Temperature control is key to mega-projects that use massive volumes of concrete. When concrete sets, the deeper layers risk thermal and chemical reactions or ‘attacks’ that can cause cracks, leading to structural integrity issues. PanU has created a concrete solution with longer setting times and temperature monitoring for casting giant beams, columns, pile caps, diaphragm walls and raft foundations.

    Underground tunnels that use PanU’s temperature-controlled concrete include Singapore’s mass rapid transit stations (Circle and Downtown Lines), the KPE and MCE. This concrete is also used in raft foundations for projects such as Tanjong Pagar Centre, the Sail and Ng Teng Fong Hospital.

    Translucent Concrete

    This is one of PanU’s more recent innovations. Unlike solid concrete, translucent concrete allows light to pass through. This provides energy savings and supports green building features. It can have decorative uses in architectural and artistic applications, and offer safety applications as well.

    Translucent concrete has green attributes as well as safety and aesthetic applications.

    Floating Concrete

    PanU also produces concrete that floats! This is another one of our latest innovations - a low-density concrete ideal for building floating structures yet with the ability to retain the structural soundness of heavyweight concrete.

    One of our latest products combining structural strength with off-land applications.
