The founding fathers laid the foundations of our nation on our behalf. Hundreds of settlers before them brought with them what was then the innovative building materials required to lay the solid foundations for homes, communities and towns. They were richly blessed with a vast array of natural resources not experienced before. More than two hundred years later, communities and towns have grown into some the world’s most formidable cities.
None of this would have been possible without the services of the bespoke builder who always had to work creatively around his available resources. Today, for a number of reasons, resources are limited. In building practices across the board, the need to build and manufacture as resourcefully as possible is prevalent. This has also come to be known as a form of sustainable development. Tools and materials are also recycled and re-usable.
The use of prefabricated concrete walls is very much part and parcel of the abovementioned process and its materials. It is essentially pre-prepared panels delivered to the building site. Standard concrete, it has been found, is not sustainable, however, these panels come by way of concrete block alternatives, much thinner than the standard but no less enforced. It also allows for effective regulation of the building’s surrounding climate.
The climate is also regulated sustainably during the manufacturing process before prefab concrete walls are delivered to its destination. It also allows for preferred levels of building quality not possible when building on site. There are also no problems associated with building and maintenance delays caused by inclement weather. Variety is allowed to the consumer in which case the bespoke building engineer provides his customer with different wall panels in different heights. Two types are known as frost wall and foundation wall.
