Construction of Affordable Housing for Economically Weaker Section(EWS) for BDA at Vallegerahalli (512 houses) & Nandini Layout (144 houses) in Bangalore City using Monolithic / Fast Track methodology.
WRITE-UP ON FAST TRACK HOUSING :
With large demand of housing, primarily in the Government Sector for providing houses for the underprivileged it has become necessary to go for construction of housing complexes faster than the normal method of construction. With continuous depletion of natural resources it has also become necessary to use factory made re-cycle able pre-engineered formwork to ensure this task.
In fast-track construction of the houses the speed in construction can primarily be achieved by eliminating all masonry works as it takes most of the time in construction & contribute to more cost in a traditional RCC framed house. Masonry also needs accuracy in construction & elaborate plastering work to make the surfaces ready to receive finishing work.
Nominally reinforced RCC walls replace the masonry in fast track housing. All walls of the house with the slab on the top are cast monolithically at one pour. The monolithic structure provides stability against imposed loads from earthquake & wind. This type of construction ensures thinner walls thereby contributing to lesser cost.The smooth finish of the exposed RCC elements can take the painting directly & thus eliminates the necessity for plastering. Thinner concrete elements & elimination of plastering contributes to saving in cost & construction time.
