IN-SITU REINFORCED CONCRETE BUILDINGS
 

Your customers want a dwelling that will last a lifetime, one that is thermally insulated, that is strong and has a good design. Moreover, they want it to be handed over on time and without any problems. Are they asking too much? No, not if they are in-situ reinforced concrete dwellings. Time is the best judge with respect to any construction material. Is it sufficiently strong? How long will its good appearance last? How will it stand up to adverse conditions? We construct with in-situ reinforced concrete, the strongest and most resistant material in the construction sector. The use of concrete in construction goes back to Egyptian and Roman times, but it was not until the XIX century when it arose again thank to the technical advances in its manufacture and in formwork technology, thus becoming the main material employed in residential and commercial construction all over the world.

Construction process:
1. Formwork After preparing the framework for the dwelling, the formwork for the outer walls, the inner dividing walls and upper frame is prepared. The reinforcement steel is housed inside the formwork, together with the insulation, if required and the electrical and plumbing pre-installation.

2. Concrete pouring The concrete is poured into the walls and framework at the same time so that the building forms a monolithic piece that guarantees thermal and acoustic insulation.

3. Formwork removal The formwork is removed from the walls and framework leaving the framework shored up for 28 days or longer depending on building height.

4. Finishes The building may be completed in any desired finish, with plaster inside, directly painted onto the concrete, with a single exterior layer or with stone etc. .
