The buildings are constructed of prefabricated ferrocement (RC) elements, “big bricks” which are free of thermal bridges. The elements are a three-layered, made of reinforced concrete – ferrocement, prefabricated, insulated “sandwich” like. The base of element is made of ferrocement as a rectangular shell with reinforced ribs at the all edges. The second layer is fire resistant thermal insulation layer with a thickness of 15 cm or more, which ensures that the coefficient of thermal conductivity k is
Polygonal RC arc is formed on each 4 meters, in gap between the elements in which the reinforcement bars protruding from base layer of elements are “bounded”. In such way, a cross-linked spatial structure made of the RC arches and the ferrocement beams (ribs elements) forms the permanent, safe fire resistant structure.
HIGH ENERGY EFFICIENCY
Vapor permeable, fire resistant insulation in thickness of 15-30cm.
Reinforced concrete is non-combustible by definition.
The cross linked structure made of RC arches and ferrocement beams forms support structure.
RESISTANCE TO HURRICANES AND STORM WINDS
There are no elements which can be separated from RC construction, such metal sheets, roof tiles, flashings, gutters or similar.
SAFE, SECURE AND PERMANENT BUILDING
The lifetime of reinforced concrete – ferrocement is measured in hundreds of years
Multiple fault rupture points, when one of many fiber reinforcement stretch out element will not collapse and can be additionally loaded.
The material is waterproof
Compared with any building of the same energy efficiency properties
REDUCED COSTS OF EXPLOITATION
Lower heating and AC costs
REDUCED MAINTENANCE COSTS
