Precast concrete towers consist of a shaft made from precast which is supported on insitu footings. A wide variety of shapes may be produced, including circular, square, rectangular, oval and egg-shaped. The segments can also be designed to incorporate water tanks, lifts, stairs, ladders, service penetrations and the like. Towers of up to 80m can be constructed using precast.
Precast poles can be either prestressed-spun or steel reinforced, and are commonly used for street lighting, and power and communication transmission.
