Plaswall Construction

Postby malcolminthemiddle » Wed Dec 09, 2015 6:15 pm

I'm thinking of using Plaswall Construction on a new build.

Should I have any concerns?

Thanks in advance.

Finding it would be the first, followed by finding anyone who can build with it, then probably the price.

Plaswall is a unique fibrocement that replaces costly steel aluminum and plywood formworks. It produces a complete load bearing wall with a complete rendered finish. And it requires significantly lower skilled labor to build high quality concrete homes and buildings. Also, this kind of system is effective to use in constructing houses, schools, high rise buildings and landscape structures.

For developers and builders, Plaswall Building System gives a great deal of benefit. For one, it has fast clean method of building that is twice as fast as the traditional way; ensuring buyers and clients a predictable deliver time of home. It is prefabricated to order, so wastages are minimized.

Why bother and what are you trying to achieve?

Systems such as these (Plaswall) were developed for the West, by Boffins, where labour costs (and in some cases material cost) became prohibitive sites and pushed up the overall economics of the development along with running costs over that building life (mostly for Commercial Buildings). Rarely if ever, have they been economical to use in Residential Dwelling construction

In the case of house construction in Thailand, even to a lesser extent. I cant see them offering any economic benefit, whether it be in the initial construction material cost or the running cost of the house, thereafter. The basic cost of concrete and blocks is very cheap in Thailand by western standards and so is the labour cost.

Just my 2 cents worth

I would be concerned that their contact email address for Thailand has a Philippines ending :roll:

inquiry@ecostrong.ph

P.S. I sure would like to see such a clean construction site in Thailand as the one depicted in the picture :lol:
