THE PROJECT: Delivers an ideal controlled environment of tranquility and coexistence. The construction material is recyclable and its modular construction system reduces 40% the time of construction. It was proposed a set of 30 small apartments.
The whole structure consists of three modules (3x3m), formed by space steel frames on which the façade and roof slabs will be placed.
To facilitate transportation and assembly, the beams will be fragmented. The forged and the facades will comply with "seacrete" slabs attached to the supporting structure. The slabs forged will be dimensioned as 2 triangular pieces simply supported and connected.
We consider as critical zone a 70cm fringe covering the 2 closest nerves to free edge of the slab. Is obtained by the 3d model analysis.
The project complies with the three dimensions of sustainability:
Environmental. Economic. Social.
SEACRETE AS MATERIAL: This is a vernacular process which using sea resources as raw materials by a chemical process creates a material capable of being occupied with constructive characteristics. This craft material has proven positive characteristics highlighting features of resistance, impermeability, compression and traction aided with an armor. The material obtained is 20% lighter than concrete. And more loading capacity.
CONSTRUCTION SYSTEM: A study of the proposed system was performed, over other building systems from swiftness performance characteristics:
Total weight of comparative structures Ratio cost structure Energy (MJ) CO2
OPERATING SYSTEM: The construction system of found plaques can be described; Limestone slabs with particular widths, these plaques work as been found to form walls and slabs of the project distributing efforts towards the structure in question.
It is completely removable minimizing its environmental impact. It is a proposal of sustainability for its low energy consumption, thermal-acoustic insulation, natural lighting, autonomous water collection systems, water treatment, rainwater capture and subsequent anaerobic treatment of wastewater.
