Building your House without Bricks? Take a Look at the New Construction Solutions Emerging in India

When construction is on one’s mind, we always tend to think of bricks and cement. It is almost as if brick-and-mortar construction has become synonymous with the construction and building of structures. After all, bricks have been the basic unit of living structures for a long period of time.

However, with the development in technology and innovations in the construction industry, certain alternatives have come up that can be used in place of cement and bricks.

 

Innovations in the Construction Industry

Accelerations and innovations in technology have been drastically reshaping the construction industry in India over the years. The development of technology has been bringing in a revolution in the construction sector. Alterations in the methodologies used in the construction industry are contributing towards driving away long-standing inefficacies which have been causing low productivity.

Recent exploration and analysis have come up with methodologies that can construct homes, temporary or permanent structures without using bricks, with steel-intensive prefabricated construction emerging as one of the leading and preferred alternatives. Several Government bodies and  other organisations have been choosing prefab structure solutions to set up facilities such as rest areas near mines etc or healthcare centers for, especially during the time of emergencies when high-speed construction is the need of the hour.

 

New Emerging Construction Solutions

  • Light Gauge Steel frame construction has come up as a fast adopting alternative to brick and mortar construction. In this type of construction, steel frames are used to form the backbone of the structures instead of conventional rebars and brick structures. LGSF structures are highly durable and are resistant to seismic waves and harsh terrains.

Advantages of Structures built without Bricks

  • Sathish Kumar M., President of National Real Estate Development Council (NAREDCO), Karnataka Chapter, mentioned that prefab structures are much more sustainable, light weight, and the longevity is higher than concrete structures. Prefab structures can also be constructed 2-times faster than traditional methods.
  • Furthermore, he says that concrete construction can age with time whereas structures built with steel can better withstand elements of weather and corrosion. They also have better thermal efficiency, and also look elegant in appearance.
