Cost savings - the speed of installation of CC, its low logistical footprint, having no requirement for specialist contractors, and the flexibility of the material when dealing with non-uniform culvert profiles and construction types, result in significant cost savings by using CC over conventional remedial solutions for both masonry and corrugated steel culverts.
Environmental savings - traditional sprayed solutions, whether concrete or bitumen are increasingly becoming prohibited by environmental agencies due to their adverse effects on the local ecology. The low alkaline reserve, low wash out rate and lower embodied carbon properties of CC, mean that CC can safely be used in live water courses without adverse effects to the local environment.
Logisitcal footprint - unlike expensive pre-formed GRP sections, heavy pre-cast concrete sections or pumped concrete solutions, CC can be supplied in man portable batched rolls which do not require plant equipment or specialist contractors for installation.
Durability - CC has excellent abrasion resistance, can withstand extremes of environmental weathering and provides robust protection against puncture, impact and animal damage. Lining concrete infrastructure with CC increases the operational life and reduces full life cycle costs of existing assets.
