Low Cost Housing - Solution for crisis regions and poor sections of the population.
Low Cost Housing
The low cost house is the solution for quick developments and poor sections of the population that need quality housing. Government and aid agencies, which in crisis regions many refugees come forward or after a natural catastrophe and depend on quick first response help, can produce a quality accommodation with the low cost house.
The sealing of the house/basement made of precast concrete elements is easy and quick with RubberElast®. New walls are placed centrally on the RubberElast®. When the walls are mounted, the RubberElast® is compressed and seals the joints.
A suitable formwork system was required for the construction of an architecturally sophisticated residential and commercial building in Ahlbeck, just a few steps from the Baltic Sea. The special feature was the unusual shape of the building. Due to the mostly round outer shell of the building, a flexible, reusable formwork for foundation slabs, ring beams, ceilings, and balcony slabs was sought.
The project is a replica of the Gotthard Base Tunnel on a scale of 1:1 for the special exhibition
“NEAT – Tor zum Süden”. The BT-Spannschloss® was used to connect the individual precast concrete elements.
