Cost-effective benefits of Hi-Con's concept balconies

Balconies are an essential element in many building projects, offering both a functional space and an aesthetic value to a building. However, choosing the right materials and design can be a challenge. For many, it is crucial to find cost-effective solutions that not only save time and money but also deliver quality, safety, and have a sustainable focus. Hi-Con's concept balconies offer just that – a smart and elegant solution for those looking to improve their building projects with cost-saving, secure, and stylish balconies.

Made of Ultra High Performance Concrete (UHPC) CRC i2, Hi-Con's own material, these are the world's first series-produced standard balconies in UHPC. UHPC offers a unique combination of strength, durability, and low maintenance, making it an ideal choice for those looking for a high-quality and long-lasting balcony solution.

Benefits of Concept Balconies

Concept balconies are significantly lighter than traditional concrete balconies, making them easier to handle and install.

The balconies offer a cost-effective alternative to traditional balcony materials such as steel and traditional concrete, ensuring that the project is completed within budget.

The precast design of our concept balconies allows for quick and easy installation, reducing the time and labor required on the construction site.

The balconies are delivered as precast elements, ensuring faster delivery and reducing the impact on the construction timeline.

Our concept balconies are designed to be safe and stable. The UHPC CRC i2 material used for the balconies provides improved resistance to wear and tear, temperature changes, and impact, making the balconies extremely durable and long-lasting.

The concept balcony also offers customization options so that you can choose the design that best suits your project. The balconies can be made in dimensions from 1.6 x 2.6 meters to 2 x 5 meters in the colors gray and light gray. There are also four different surfaces and three different railings to choose from.

Environmental benefits of our UHPC material

While concrete is not typically considered a sustainable material, it is still an important component for building safe and durable constructions. Instead of eliminating concrete entirely, it is essential to evaluate different concrete-based products, compare them to alternative materials such as steel, and assess the unique benefits that each material has that can help reduce environmental impact.


Hi-Con's UHPC CRC i2 material offers multiple benefits when compared to steel and traditional concrete. Because the balconies are slim, we use less cement to produce them, compared to traditional cement, which results in 25% less CO2 emission, less transportation, and smaller cranes at the construction site. The material also has a lifespan of 100 + years.

Renovating with our concept balconies

In addition to new construction projects, Hi-Con's concept balconies are also an excellent solution for certain renovation projects, whether it is a need to replace old and unsafe balconies or add balconies to an existing building. The slim and lightweight design of the concept balconies makes them an ideal solution, and since they are delivered as prefabricated elements, the installation process is quick and easy. However, it should be noted that the building must have a concrete back wall for it to be possible. If you have a renovation project that requires balconies and you are unsure if our concept balconies are suitable, do not hesitate to contact us for assistance here.
