LOW COST HOUSING

Low cost housing refers to houses that are inexpensive to build. IT doesn't mean that the houses will be inexpensive to live in.

The goal of low-cost housing is to save money while also maintaining buildings quality.

Following Properties Reduces Cost Construction:

Locally available materials . Improved skills and technology.

Without sacrificing the strength, performance and life of the structure.

Low cost housing is done by proper management of resources as well as by

utilizing cheap building materials.

PLASWALL SYSTEM

Plaswall is a unique fibrocement lost in place or permeant concrete formwork

•It replaces costly steel aluminum and plywood formworks

•It produces a complete Load Bearing wall with a complete rendered finish

•Increases site production by as much as

300%

•Requires significantly lower skilled labor to build high quality concrete homes and buildings

ADVANTAGES

COMMERCIAL ADVANTAGES

•WORKABILITY

PLASWALL allows easy installation up to THREE (3) TIMES faster than any conventional construction.

The site assembly of the main components can be done faster, reducing financing and labor cost.

It is also completely scalable in terms of deploying multiple sets of equipment. One set up can produce enough numbers of PLASWALL for the simultaneous erection of number of houses a day.

•FASTER ROI

Quicker installation and lower cost ensure faster and higher returns on capital investment.

•VERY LOW MAINTENANCE:

with a minimal maintenance, there are no issues of cracking

or chipping. Latex paint which have five times more life span compared to normal paints add to the life of construction.

COMMERCIAL ADVANTAGES

•PRE-DEFINED BOQ:

Bill of Quantities, defined before work, results in a predictable cost and better inventory control.

•REDUCED CONSTRUCTION COST:

Considerable savings in construction time and labor cost due to minimized use of SKILLED MANPOWER and NO requirement of heavy equipments on site.

ADVANTAGES

GREEN ADVANTAGES

SAFE AND BIO COMPATIBLE:

There is NO CFS (cold formed steel) in the polystyrene (in case of thermal panels) and forestry products can be avoided completely.

HIMI is manufactured from 100% recycled plastic. There is no forest decimation involved in hardiflex

sheet. Hence, a green product.

•SOCIAL BENEFITS:

Unskilled workers receive on- the-job training and thus, get better job opportunities. Secondly, at competitive cost, Plaswall building system is built

to exceptional standards that enhance a citizen’s

lifestyle.

•MINIMUM WASTAGE:

Wastage is minimized as it is fabricated to order.

The concrete and other materials’ volume usage

is exact and predictable.

TECHNICAL ADVANTAGES

•FIRE RESISTANCE:

Plaswall is Non-combustible and has fire resistance for one hour as determined by ASTM E 119 tests.

It is excellent thermal insulation acts as a thermal shield.

•ACOUSTIC INSULATION:

Its inbuilt sound reduction properties make it excellent for sound absorption and noise isolation.

Concrete walls carry sounds, thus hampering privacy.

•TERMITE RESISTANCE:

Plaswall is TERMITE and VERMINE FREE whereas traditional building are quite vulnerable to such pest.

It is also RUST-PROOF and ANTI-ROT.

•HUMIDITY RESISTANCE:

Plaswall is humidity/ waterproof unlike conventional building systems which absorb moisture and breed microorganisms. No flaking and crumbling occurs due to moisture seepage.

TECHNICAL ADVANTAGES

DURABILITY:

Plaswall is not affected by biological or chemical phenomenon whereas traditional buildings corrode or develop cracks over time.

Its shear wall makes it stronger than any conventional construction.

•MOBILITY:

The mobile factory can be stationed on-site to reduce transportation cost.The movable manufacturing unit attracts significantly less capital than a fixed factory.

•FEWER SKILLED TRADES INVOLVED:

This is because framing, masonry, insulation and other

such skilled trades are reduced or eliminated. So, MOST of WORK is done by UNSKILLED LABOURERS.

•HIGH QUALITY WALL FINISH:

Plaswall is simple to erect with excellent quality finish. It eliminates the need for rendering finish to the wall

surfaces
