Transforming Construction: Portland Hollowcore Leading the Way

Transforming Construction: Portland Hollowcore Leading the Way

In the dynamic realm of construction, innovation is the cornerstone of progress. Portland Hollowcore, headquartered in Cape Town, South Africa, stands at the forefront of this transformative journey. We aren’t merely constructing buildings; we’re pioneering the future of construction with our revolutionary hollow core technology—a precasted slab solution that redefines efficiency, sustainability, and strength in construction practices.


What is Hollow Core?

Hollow core technology represents a breakthrough in construction methodology, offering precast concrete slabs characterised by voids or hollow cores. These cores not only reduce the weight of the slabs but also provide inherent structural benefits, making them ideal for a wide range of applications in modern construction.


Redefining Efficiency:

In the realm of hollow core construction, innovation takes center stage, with two primary methods at play: extrusion and slip forming slabs. At the forefront of our achievements lies the mastery of the extrusion technique, a cornerstone in the manufacturing of hollow core slabs. This cutting-edge process empowers us to craft these slabs with unmatched efficiency. Through precision extrusion of concrete using specialised equipment, we achieve remarkable manufacturing speeds, guaranteeing the smooth progression of your project while adhering to budgetary constraints.


Strength Without Compromise:

Hollow core construction distinguishes itself with an exceptional blend of strength and lightweight design. Our extruded hollow core slabs may be lighter, but they boast remarkable robustness, capable of supporting heavy loads and withstanding harsh environmental conditions. You’ll receive a resilient, long-lasting structure without compromising on structural integrity.



Upon receiving approved plans, our streamlined process ensures swift panel design and processing for casting. Our proficient team guarantees speedy installation, leaving your site orderly and prepared for the subsequent construction phases.

Commitment to Sustainability:

In today’s environmentally conscious world, sustainability is paramount. At Portland Hollowcore, we take pride in the eco-friendliness of hollow core construction. By minimising material wastage and reducing energy consumption, our hollow core slabs not only exhibit strength and durability but also contribute to environmental preservation.

Beyond the benefits mentioned, hollow core construction offers numerous advantages over traditional methods. With its rapid installation, reduced need for support structures, and minimal disruption to surroundings, it emerges as an ideal choice for diverse applications, ranging from residential buildings to bridges and beyond.


Serving the Western Cape:

Our commitment extends throughout the Western Cape, with a service radius of 400 km from Cape Town. We’re dedicated to bringing innovative construction solutions to our region, ensuring that projects are executed efficiently and sustainably.


Whether you’re a developer aiming to streamline construction processes or an architect seeking innovative solutions, Portland Hollowcore stands as your preferred partner. With our expertise, dedication to quality, and unwavering commitment to sustainability, we’re poised to help you shape the future—one hollow core slab at a time.
