House Joubert – Langebaan – Light Steel Frame House
This Project was built in Langebaan with exceptionally sandy ground conditions, hence we had to use a raft foundation. The concrete foundations were done using Geoplas flooring modules which consist of recycled plastic modules. This system raises the slab off of the ground and creates ventilation (space) which can be used for services. This method is very useful not only to reduce energy loss but also adds to the “green factor” in construction. This client is all about green living energy saving and interested in the speed of the construction method. With the design of the roof and insulated walls we achieved a 17 to 20 percent improvement in energy efficiency compared to conventional designs.
This project once again shows the ability of Light Steel Frame Housing.
