New direction in construction

To date, wide recognition in the construction of various structures and residential buildings has received monolithic construction. The popularity of monolithic construction is justified by the fact that such designs are easily built in close city quarters, which has an advantage in large cities and, without requiring the installation of large -sized tower cranes and another that takes up a lot of construction equipment space.

Monolithic casting is also considered economically profitable – the cheaper cost of construction and faster construction rate than when erecting buildings in the usual way.

The process of work is as follows: first, the formwork and frame of reinforcement are installed, then concrete is supplied from special sleeves under pressure and formwork is poured. Concrete can be supplied to any height, but in the cold season a mixture of concrete will have to be warmed up additionally. This is the only drawback in this construction method. The next stage is the removal of formwork and concrete care. That’s the whole technology. Quickly, efficiently, affordable.

Currently, monolithic structures are three types. The most expensive design is completely cast from concrete. To improve the environmental characteristics of the room, the internal walls are laid out of brick, and brick partitions are built. A little cheaper in the cost of the building, in which only the internal walls are poured out of concrete, external brick. It seems like a brick house is built.

Well, the most economical option is both internal and external walls are cast from concrete, it can be reduced a little more using drywall for internal ceilings of the room. But of course, the acoustics in such a house are very strong and you have to build the walls of brick yourself.

Monolithic concrete casting is most often used in the construction of multi-storey buildings, cottage villages, tunnels, metro, pools, reservoirs, treatment systems. Use monolithic technologies in the overhaul and reconstruction of housing.

The use of innovative technologies in the construction industry allowed monolithic construction to take an honorary leading place. We list the main advantages over brick and panel structures.

The building is built at high speed. Since the construction is used in the construction of the formwork together with the reinforcement, the marriage is practically absent, which in turn gives strength and durability to the building (about 150 years), such structures also withstand earthquakes up to eight points.

The advantage of monolithic technologies in the construction of buildings and structures is even ceilings and walls, obtaining walls without seams, as well as the exclusion of cracks, which in turn does not require additional costs for their sealing. This type of construction allows people to independently choose the layout of the house. Completely monolithic buildings are a rarity due to a high price and, accordingly, a decrease in demand. For the most part, panel-monolithic or brick-monolithic houses are built.

The advantages of the monolith include the fact that in the first years after the construction of the soil, the house does not give cracks, unlike a panel house.
