Reference project of a Mobile Precast Concrete Factory in Moscow

We designed and delivered a Mobile Precast Concrete Factory to the Moscow area in 2013 for the manufacture of precast concrete sections in a construction project encompassing some 2,000 housing units.

The architectural, structural and prefabricated section design of the project was carried out by Arkkitehtisuunnittelu Jukka Tikkanen Ltd. The developer’s building contractor was Lemminkäinen Corporation. Meetings between the contractor, the architectural office and Finninno combined the expertise of each party in order to achieve the best possible outcome.

This type of comprehensive design and project management contributes significantly to the success of the construction project and brings maximum benefit to the developer.

The Mobile Precast Concrete Factory designed and delivered by Finninno in the Moscow area included the following:

  • production facility of 23 m x 86 m
  • three 10-tonne overhead cranes
  • two-sided battery mould with 20 cells
  • two-sided staircase mould
  • production consultation.

This Mobile Precast Concrete Factory can produce:

  • load-bearing partition walls for 2,000 housing units per year, or
  • load-bearing partition walls + precast inner envelopes for 1,300 housing units per year.

The annual production capacity of the factory is approx. 100,000 m2 of precast wall sections. In cubic metres, this corresponds to approx. 16,000 m3 of concrete.

*There are about 320 work days in Russia in a year. There is work on 7 days a week, and the length of a work shift is 12 hours. The work shifts are so arranged that the working groups have 2 days of work and 2 days off.

A production facility of this size could also have accommodated 2 table moulds (4 m x 10 m) or 1 table mould and 1 elevator shaft mould.

Total need of personnel: 30 persons

Two teams of employees + maintenance man / 12 + 12 + 1 = 25 persons
2 foremen
1 supervisor
1 factory manager
1 assistant

Volume of production of precast sections

Production volume in one work shift (12 h) = approx. 330 m2 of precast wall sections, which corresponds to approx. 53 m3 of concrete.
