Precast for Life

Have you ever thought what might be the smallest precast product in the world? We found it out with the Red Cross, one of the largest global development aid organizations. The product is called “latrine”, a common and easy sanitation solution widely used in developing countries.

Latrines are built of a precast plate, sheltering walls and a hole in the ground. They play a critical role in improving the hygiene and health of families and communities. Local artisans have skills to build the latrines by their community requirements.
