Large Panel Prefabrication System
The panels that make up the building are differentiated according to the functions they perform and the position they occupy, so that next to “typical” panels (slab plates, internal walls and facade walls) there can be “special” elements (pillars , flights of stairs, eaves elements, parapet elements, etc.).
The connection between the various elements is obtained by forming joints with concrete casting in prepared spaces in which the metal reinforcements protruding from the elements themselves and / or any mechanical connections are intertwined, the structural elements will also be constrained with the foundation, generally a plate.
Some finishes are made on site, but they are in any case faster than those of on-site constructions: if desired, the external doors and windows can already be assembled in the factory, as well as the external finish of the infill panels, the internal sides of the panels are smooth at the bottom of the formwork and need a simple plaster shave. The perimeter cladding is made with thermal break sandwich panels with no thermal bridges.
The systems are already inserted in the prefabricated components, reducing the work and construction times.
The investment on the production site and equipment is significantly lower than the first system and so are the dimensions of the prefabricated elements (max weight to be lifted 8-10 tons).
It is a very flexible system that adapts to any project and offers the customer the opportunity to make some changes even on standard projects.
It is possible to build the production site even at a distance from the construction site (70-100 km); if you want to use local prefabricators, there are no problems because they are commonly used elements.
The choice of which construction system to use will depend on various factors, the type, quantity and variability of the buildings to be built, the timing of construction, the investments to be dedicated to the production sites and local development plans.
In light of the foregoing and in consideration of wanting to promote a modern, flexible and tested construction system, we are initially recommending the “massive panels” system, postponing the deepening of the “three-dimensional modules” system for the eventual development of the project.
Below we illustrate in greater detail the aforementioned system which initially offers greater guarantees as it is a proven system and which is able, based on the investment on the production site, to satisfy any request from the residential market.
To better describe the system, we enclose drawings of a typical building, which is only indicative to illustrate the characteristics and peculiarities of the system.
The building consists of two residential units on two floors for a total area of about 110 square meters.
