Event Title

The advantage of prefabricated concrete structures

Session

Architecture and Spatial Planning

Description

The research deals with the analysis and advantage of prefabricated concrete structures against steel structures. The focus of the study is mainly montage structures of business / economic facilities, mostly one floor, but the height of which is more of 7 m, that is to say several times higher than that of normal floors. The research is based on the analytical method, which helps in the final results. In addition to the many advantages, here the analysis is based mainly on two main aspects:

  1. The aspect of construction time (Easy Installation ‒ Fast mounting and Demounting).
  2. Aspect of the construction cost (Cost Effective).

The analysis shows that the application of structures from prefabricated concrete elements, compared to steel structures, in addition to the above-mentioned advantages (Speed & Strength and Cost Effective), there are many other advantages, such as:

  • ‒ Quality
  • ‒ Concrete assumes the shape
  • ‒ Long Spans (Covering large spaces)
  • ‒ Flexible Designs
  • ‒ Easy Installation (Fast mounting and demounting)
  • ‒ Long Life
  • ‒ Architecture - the aesthetic aspect
  • ‒ Easy Maintenance Structures
  • ‒ Thermal Performance (Layered elements - Sandwich elements for the closure of buildings)
  • ‒ Acoustic Performance
  • ‒ Fire Resistant
  • ‒ HCS (Hollow Core Slabs) Act as a Ducting System
  • ‒ Minimal Activities in the Site
  • ‒ Weather
  • ‒ Water impermeable
  • ‒ Recyclable, etc.

Keywords:

prefabricated structures, steel structures, advantages, disadvantages, economic facilities, construction time, construction cost
