Why use Urban Kwik Floor System?

The old in-situ method of constructing floors in storey buildings is by casting a lot of concrete around tons of iron rods. A lot of timber boards and props, which don’t add any strength to the slab, must be used to support the wet concrete and iron rods. The supports must remain in place for about 21 days while the concrete hardens.

 The in-situ process is inconvenient, expensive and time consuming. It involves tedious sourcing,  purchasing, transporting and storing of a lot of building materials. The likelihood for some of the materials to get damaged or stolen is very high. The quality of the floor achieved by this process is often sub-standard since strict on-site supervision is very difficult.

The URBAN KWIK FLOOR SYSTEM solves the problems associated with the conventional cast in-situ method for constructing concrete floors.

Urban Kwik Floor System

Urban Kwik Floor System is based on a highly successful concept originating from Europe. The system has been used extensively in Europe, North America and South Africa. In Ghana, it has been used in constructing homes, offices, shops, churches, warehouses, hotels, schools and universities. It is a neat, quick and economical method of constructing suspended concrete floor slabs. The Urban Kwik Floor System consists of Pre-cast Concrete Floor Beams and Floor Blocks.

Precast Concrete Floor Beam (Rib)

The precast concrete floor beam, also called rib, is a 50mm thick concrete which incorporates a lattice and the tensile reinforcements for the floor. The lattice is manufactured from high tensile steel (iron rods) and is the key to the success of the Urban Kwik Floor System. The lattice is a rigid steel truss structure which stiffens the floor beam. It provides an excellent bond and shear key between the precast floor beam and the wet-cast overlay concrete.   The precast concrete floor beam is designed and produced in accordance with British and Ghanaian Standards.

The Concrete Floor Blocks

The concrete floor blocks are produced hollow to reduce the weight of the floor slab. They are produced under strict quality control measures to ensure structural integrity and minimal loss through breakages. Our floor blocks are produced to meet Class A strength requirements of GS297-1:2010. The standard floor block size is 550mm long by 200mm wide by 140mm deep. Other sizes produced include 550mm x 200mm x 90mm and 550mm x 200mm x 200mm.



The design of Urban Kwik Floor System may be undertaken by any licensed Professional Engineer who is experienced in reinforced concrete design. A typical cross-section through the slab is provided to facilitate the design. Urban Concrete Ltd. provides this design service to our clients as part of the manufacturing process. When we undertake the design, we provide the installation plan showing rib positions, layout of additional reinforcement if required and prop centers which must be strictly adhered to during installation.


The concrete floor is constructed by positioning the precast concrete floor beams on the structure of your building. The concrete floor blocks are then laid on the floor beams to cover the entire area which requires the concrete flooring. Very few timber supports are required. A minimum layer of 50mm thick concrete is cast over the floor blocks and floor beams to achieve a flat floor surface.

The following is the installation procedure for Urban Kwik Floor System;

  1. Lay the floor beams supported on  opposite walls or beams in accordance with the installation plan provided by the engineer.
  2. Place both extreme end blocks to obtain the correct floor beam spacing.
  3. Erect the temporary support for each rib as specified by the engineer or not exceeding 1.8m centers before laying of further blocks.
  4. Complete the laying of the blocks.
  5. Where applicable, place the void former, mesh, or additional reinforcement in position.
  6. Pour the in-situ overlay concrete after watering down the complete system. Ensure even spread of concrete and do not heap the mix in one position on the deck.
  7. Strip the temporary support when advised by the engineer.


  • Easier and faster to construct.

Due to the simplicity of the system, it can be swiftly erected on site using less skilled labour than needed for     conventional slab construction, thus, reducing cost and saving time.

  • Less timber required for supports.

The floor beams and floor blocks form a complete deck unto which the in-situ overlay concrete is poured. The floor beams merely require few temporary supports until the in-situ concrete has gained strength. Thus, less time and cost is spent on constructing, stripping and disposing of temporary supports. This is good for the environment since fewer trees would be cut for the supports.

  • Less concrete required.

The hollow concrete floor blocks replace a substantial volume of in-situ concrete which leads to a significant reduction in cost and dead load to be supported by other elements of the structure such as beams, columns and foundations.

  • Design Benefits.

At Urban Concrete Ltd., we custom design and manufacture the floor beams to meet the structural requirements of your building. We provide a one stop shop service for design, manufacture, supply and installation of your precast floor. This ensures that you obtain maximum benefit from the design.
