Rapidcore – Box Cores

"The benefits we get from using the Creagh system are the reduction in Health & Safety risks, we don’t have to worry about scaffolding, the time savings and reduction in costs are major for the company. It also allows us immediate access to all plots simultaneously once the core has been erected." - Adrian Gallagher, Wilson Developments

Rapidcore lift and stair cores are manufactured offsite in bespoke moulds.

They are installed quickly and efficiently by our specialist installation teams. Creagh can design/ manufacture the capping slabs with all temporary and permanent anchors cast in. Rapidcore can also be designed as shear walls to provide lateral stability or as an efficient replacement for blockwork or in situ concrete.

Our box cores can be used to create either just a couple floors high, or as high as 9 floors. We can provide this as an elevator shaft, or fitted with the appropriate hardware for our precast stairs. If your project requires more than 9 floors, please see our component cores.
