Good reasons for a cellar made from pre-fabricated concrete components
Cost saving in residential construction in Germany is urgently needed. By removing elements, in other words reducing the quality standard, the client is presented with slimmed down projects. Alongside the quality standard often the cellar too falls victim to the red pen. The cellar, due to its allegedly too high costs, is presented as offering considerable potential for savings. Naturally every client wants to save costs.
Why have a cellar in spite of this?
Construction reasons: House connections are easier to lay, pipe defects are easier to locate and can be refurbished without excavation work. In the case of insufficient foundation depth compact subsoil can contract through drying out; subsidence and cracks are pre-programmed.
Better quality of living: The extra usable space gained by adding a cellar takes the strain off the normal living spaces. In this way you can design a standard priced living space in a house more cost-effectively if, for example, you plan for the utility room, guest room, sauna, garage or hobby room to be in the cellar. A liveable lower floor increases quality of living on the one hand through the variety of its usage and on the other hand through creating additional living space for the family.
Why pre-fabricated concrete components? cellar made of pre-fabricated concrete components provides the opportunity for varied design possibilities and individual layout solutions, without an increase in extra work. Modern pre-fabricated component systems made of concrete, such as, for example, wall elements, ceiling panels, stairs and other things reduce the construction time, are cheaper and provide consistent quality. Due to the ready to paint surfaces, plastering on construction site is no longer required. The use of pre-fabricated concrete components guarantees a reduction in the workload as well as clean processing on construction site, and, under expert instruction, enables the client to reduce the extent of his internal labour. The assembly of the cellar is carried out through dry wall construction, can be executed at a later date and as such is very flexible.
