  • Abstract:
    Hybrid concrete construction (HCC) uses a combination of in-situ and precast concrete and is an example of 'mixed' construction, which is the term for an innovative combination of different materials or framing methods. Examples of HCC exist in many countries to fulfil varying structural requirements, so it is not clear why HCC is not better used in the UK. Research was undertaken to gain a better understanding of the selection and use of HCC. Two case study projects were investigated to explore decision-making criteria, the roles of project participants and the challenges particular to HCC. The findings suggest that HCC is selected when measurable cost or programme advantages are not the most important criteria, but where other factors such as satisfying architectural requirements (finish, colour, etc.) or operational demands (such as internal comfort or maintenance) are critical. In both cases, clients and architects were found to be the most influential team members in the frame-selection process.
