Canadian UHPC leaders

Szolyd Development are leaders in the precast concrete industry, pushing technology, design possibilities and ourselves to become better at what we do. We embrace new technology such as UHPC (utra high performance concrete), and advanced prototyping techniques to make quality, well designed, cost effective precast products. We collaborate with designers, engineers, architects and product specialists to develop new concepts, processes, and cementitious mix designs for unique precast projects

SINCE IT’S INCEPTION, SZOLYD DEVELOPMENT HAS MADE A NAME FOR CONTRIBUTING A DESIGN AESTHETIC TO WHAT IS OTHERWISE REGARDED AS AN INDUSTRIAL MATERIAL.

The Szolyd ( pronounced ‘Solid’ ) Team chooses this wonderful material because it offers infinite creation possibilities to fulfill the unique designs and high craftsmanship requirements our clients expect.

Based in Victoria, BC, we have worked all over North America, and have consulted on projects internationally. Our renowned team of skilled technicians combine artistic ability and technical proficiency with the best materials to ensure your project meets or exceeds your expectations.

Simply put, our goal is to bring value to projects. By collaborating with designers about our processes and materials, we can be your partner in making your designs a reality. We can work with you early on in the conceptual stage to determine the feasibility of your project and whether or not it is worth moving on to the next stage. We can also advise you on potential timelines and budgets, types of alternative materials, and possible ideas regarding re-designs. If we can’t see the value in a project, we will question its merit, rather than wasting time with renderings and estimations.

Over the past 12 years we have developed a strong design build precast company, it is through these custom projects that we have developed the infrastructure and experience for specialised manufactured product lines.

Our history

We love concrete, always have always will. It does not always do what you want it to do, but sometimes it does spectacular things that you never conceived possible..

Craigflower basement studio

We started out in our basement with concrete countertops 17 years ago. At the time, virtually no one except a few architects thought that the material was a legitimate medium. We refined our skills as we took on new and challenging projects, a few of which didn’t always go flawlessly. 10 years ago we purchased a sub license to cast Ductal from Lafarge. Casting with UHPC changed our ideas of what was possible with concrete. We educated designers and architects about what possible, they dreamed up creative ideas and left us scratching our heads, figuring out how to build them. Over the years we have made a transition from residential to commercial projects, and as of the last 5 years we are transitioning from projects to products.
