In countries like India where the population is growing rapidly the demand for new infrastructure has also increased. The construction industry is facing a lot of problems with manpower shortage and the rising cost of construction materials. The cost of labor has gone up significantly and the availability of construction workers has become problematic. As customers are demanding on-time delivery of their homes with good quality construction work, this is leading to pressure on developers.
In such situations conventional construction methods will not be able to exploit the advantages of mass housing, thus the new construction technologies should be utilized to deliver homes fast with minimum labor and zero wastage of materials. Precast concrete can solve the problem of the current situation with a lot many benefits associated with it. Precast concrete construction is a method where building components are prefabricated off-site using advanced tools and equipment and thereafter transported to the building site where they are erected using building cranes.
Below we explain how to build affordable housing with precast technology
What does cost-efficient construction mean?
If you are planning to build an affordable building, you need to build cost-efficiently. Cost-efficient construction includes several factors. One factor is the right planning, this is the method by which error sources can be detected and eliminated in advance. This saves time as well as money. Pre-constructed blocks are the right choice for cost-effective buildings.
Cost-efficient construction with precast concrete elements
These elements are produced under controlled conditions with high quality kept in mind. Due to the simple and fast assembly on site of these preconstructed blocks, the number of workers can be reduced, and therefore labor costs are much lower compared to traditional construction methods.
A modular and efficient building system
Precast is a smart and industrialized way to construct cost-efficient buildings also it is considered to be a modular building system based on ready-made components with intelligent connections. It provides a way to design and construct homes in a reasonable time-frame, at a reasonable cost, along with long service life and low maintenance costs, and flexibility in design. Compared to the traditional system, precast uses less cement, water, steel, and labor.
Savings in concrete and energy
Precast buildings are well-suited to hot climates, which absorb and store surplus heat and slowly release it back into the air. Precast can also be used for buildings in seismic areas when the specific local requirements are taken into account in analysis and design.
Flexibility through good design
Design and engineering play a key role in the successful implementation of precast technology. A structural engineer can find the most practical and cost-efficient solutions for any type of precast building which is not the case with traditional building methods.
