In terms of development, technology has always played a big role in changing almost all sectors including real estate. Cutting-edge construction technologies are drastically changing how the real estate industry operates and how future projects will be completed. Here are 4 modern construction technologies that are changing the face of the real estate sector.
1. Mivan Formworks
Meevan closure is a rapid construction technique that ensures strength and durability of buildings using aluminum formwork. This technique is preferred to build a large number of houses in a limited time without any hassle. This technique also takes advantage of the shape of the room’s structure to build slabs and walls. They are very strong and sturdy shaped and made with utmost precision and are easy to manage.
Simple: The formwork or assembly systems used are basic with only horizontal, vertical, or circular moldings and few additional accessories.
Faster: Because the mold is ready and does not need to be built each time, manufacturing can be completed more quickly. Compared with wooden formwork, the wear of formwork is negligible.
Flexible: Since the formwork is a one-time setup, it can be easily moved to any job site. It simply has to be installed at the construction site and start the concrete work immediately.
Cost-effective: It requires one-time investment on the main resource i.e. aluminum alloy, does not add much weight to the cost of other facilities.
2. Post Tensioning
Post-tensioning is a technique for strengthening concrete. It is a great tool for builders as it allows almost any form of structure to be built while being cost effective and sustainable for the environment.
Applications of Post-tensioning technology
Post-tensioning is used extensively during the construction of bridges, slabs, silos and other forms of concrete construction. This can help create innovative concrete components that are thinner, longer and stronger than before. Parking garages, high-rise residential towers, and many other types of structures also use the post-tension technique.
3. Ready Mix Concrete
Ready mix concrete is custom made concrete that is specially manufactured to required standard specifications and ready to be mixed and poured on site which saves time and money.
- As the ready mix concrete plant uses state-of-the-art equipment and consistent processes, quality concrete is obtained. Continuous inspection of materials, process parameters and key practices during manufacturing helps in maintaining strict control.
- Cement is saved as bulk concrete is used instead of bags of cement and less consumption results in less cement production resulting in minimum environmental pollution.
- More durable structures are obtained, thereby increasing service life and saving life cycle costs.
4. Tower Crane
Tower crane is a crane used for the construction of tall buildings or skyscrapers. They are mainly used in construction projects to lift and move heavy materials from one place to another while having a relatively small footprint on site.
Due to the large tower-like structure that allows the crane to move, it is called a tower crane. The tower mast supports the jib and counter jib which in turn support the cabling, trolleys and hooks which perform the lifting. Construction companies use tower cranes to lift heavy materials such as steel and concrete.
