AbstractAbout AuthorsReferences
In Russia, there is a steady trend of growth in the volume of housing construction due to low-rise housing construction. The population builds monolithic, frame-wooden, brick, block houses on individual projects with the help of specialized firms or on their own. At the same time, the country continues to operate house-building plants and factories of reinforced concrete structures, working with incomplete loading. The use of effective three-layer panels produced by home-building factories , and multi-hollow floor slabs produced by reinforced concrete structures plants, makes it possible to build not only more affordable housing, but also comfortable living-individual and low-rise houses with a house plot of land. The use of stepped panels of external walls, overhead facade cornices, modern technology in the manufacture of products and finishing materials makes it possible to completely eliminate the appearance of paneling of buildings. At the same time, the cost of housing in one-or two-story houses from factory-made housing sets is lower than the cost of the cheapest panel apartment housing by 15–20%. The construction time of such housing is reduced by 3–5 times compared to the construction of monolithic, frame-wooden and block houses.
