Recently, I came across a brilliant Company working on a Construction technique called Monolithic Construction.
The idea is this, like small objects, where we make a mould – Say a bread, and fill it with flour.
What if we make a Mould of large steel structures and fill it with cement? The resulting, reproducible construction technique results in 3D PreCast buildings and homes.
The advantages are plenty, Such as:
- ON SITE PRODUCTION
- PRODUCTION EFFICIENCY
- SURFACE FINISHES
The technology delivers construction times up to 80% faster than traditional superstructure systems and is ideal for large and repetitious projects where onsite manufacturing delivers optimum benefits.
The inherent load bearing strength of each module means that multi-level constructions of up to 10 storeys can be economically and more safely achieved than using tilt slab or traditional practices. The system provides a highly flexible precast building that is strong, durable, fire, termite, cyclone, water and weather proof.
These structure have a longevity of 50+ years with low Maintenance and operating costs. Precast concrete is more durable than other materials; it is fire-proof, termite proof and water-proof. The superior finish achieved with controlled manufacturing processes means that the concrete may be left in its natural state and not finished, painted or covered at all, if so required.
The self-supporting system provides a safer work environment than traditional tilt slab construction methods requiring no propping, brackets or expensive scaffolding.
Daily controlled production, fully committed to each individual project with a customized plant per project.
The factory is an all-weather production facility and provides faster construction time regardless of weather conditions. Onsite factory controlled fit-outs such as windows, doors, joinery, insulation and even painting can be pre- installed prior to installation to reduce onsite labour and construction costs.
Both the manufacturing plants and the individual modules can be re-located to another location.
The mobile factories can be set up on site to save on transport and gas emission, to secure a better production rate, a faster delivery rate, a better pricing outcome.
Hence with a Class 1 finish, the off-form quality of wall and ceiling means that plaster work is eliminated.
The surfaces are so well finished that it is ready to receive paint.
The best part is you can ensure tolerance up-to 5mm! unheard of in construction industry.
So, I Urge everyone in construction industry to educate themselves about Monolithic Construction, and embrace this incredible technology, cause trust me, it’s going to replace most of the construction in years to come.
