Precast – The Fastest building technology, an apartment less than in a day
With the conventional building technology Flats And Villas At Palakkad, Flats At Palakkad Kerala, Flats At Palakkad For Saleeven if you crank the whole process to the full throttle your home won’t be complete in less than four month.
The technology involved in this superfast construction is called – precast; you might have assumed from the name of the technology itself; pre cast casted or fabricated before. The house is built from the factory and it fitted in the construction site. Unlike the other factory made house technology in pre-cast majority of the construction is done at factory itself. To be specific more than 90% of construction is done in the factory itself. Almost finished homeFlats At Puthur Palakkad, Flats For Rent At Palakkad is coming out of the factory with finished plumbing and wiring, kitchen fittings extra. This finished module fitted in the construction site. In apartment building project this module or cube is joined with neighbouring one at the construction site while in the old pre-built technology walls are joined to form the house. Since majority of the construction is done from the factory construction speed at the site is super-fast.
Precast technology is relatively new introduced in 2010; it got some Australian and New Zealand patents. The biggest precast project so far is running in banglore noth - Dasanapura hobli; this building project is a residential apartment complex with 1,520 houses on 12 acres of land. The project there is headed by Gavin Moore a New Zealand based builder who is the head of moor’s living which holds the patent for precast technology. Moore told about the construction style that the entire 400Sq ft house is transported diving into two, a 240 sq ft piece and another 160 sq ft piece which is joined at the construction sited and the entire house module is joined with the existing modules.
The walls of these housing modules are made up of concrete itself; the outer walls have 4 inches thickness while the inner have 3” these walls are connected to iron pillars which are self-locking. Moore claims that these buildings are not less strong than the conventional buildings in fact they are even stronger than them. Precast homes are earthquake resistant too (category 3).
Currently the 12 storeyed project in banglore is an economical one but moors tells that this technology can be used in construction of luxury apartments and houses too. Some motels and residential complex are built in New Zealand and Australia using this technology.
This building technology is most suited for vertical buildings and in the case of Bangalore project they are building four apartments in a day. Moore tells that even the four flats in day is not the full throttle and while the production capability of the factory increases this will reach to 12 flats a day; that is the speed of this technology.
Hearing the speed and flexibility of this technology do you plan to execute your next building project using precast technology? You have to get license from moores for that; they have patented this technology. Cost of construction is in par with the conventional building technology so considering the time saving resulting is lesser investing period this will prove to be economical than the conventional building method
