CONSTRUCTION SITE PREPARATION

Before starting a construction of any object, it is necessary to carefully prepare the territory to ensure all conditions to enable timely and quality construction process.

Comprehensive construction site preparation includes clean-up, trees removal, roots and stumps uprooting, garbage removal, temporary camp construction, temporary roads building, installation of temporary electrical and water systems, building of temporary fence for construction area.

LAYING OF BUILDING AXES OUT

Building axes layout preparation is the most important stage in a construction process. Accuracy of such works  is a guarantee of durability and reliability of a future building and of successful process of construction and assembly works.

Laying of buildings and structures out is carried out by layout drawing where the building size and configuration is specified, as well as distances and angles of separating points in relation to geodetic points or base building grid. …

EXCAVATION

Excavation is a very important step in the construction of any object, regardless of its complexity. On quality of excavation depends further construction process. If you make a mistake with a pit depth, it will surely affect a building stability and terms its construction. This is why it is extremely important to correctly follow a project of excavation and earth masses moving and observance of project references.

Designing and excavation must be preceded by a study of soils to define their …

FOUNDATIONS

Foundation type is determined during designing stage of construction and depends of many factors, such as building structure, soil bearing capacity and others.The main types of foundations used: strip foundation, pile foundations, monolithic foundations, combined foundations.

The scope of work of zero circle includes: organization of sand and gravel unit preparation, levelling strainer, horizontal waterproofing, protective screed, prefabrication of reinforcement cage, construction of formwork, …

LOAD BEARING AND CLADING STRUCTURES

Load bearing and clading structures are an assemblage of building structure or facilities that interact statically and are designed to withstand all loads and ensure the durability of the building and its sustainability. The other structures that are present in a building called non-load-bearing (self-supporting).

The types of load bearing structures are: reinforced concrete walls and columns, brickwork and stonework, efficient laying of foam blocks and porous brick, frame walls of wood or …

Roof

Roofing installation

There are two main types of  roofing: exploited and unexploited. The roof type choice is  due primarily to project  and style of the building. Pitched unexploited roofs are divided into two types: heat-insulated roofs and cold roofs with warming in overlaps. Final coating can be made of many materials: natural tile, soft tile, various types of metal, copper, composites, as well as less common roofing of straw and green roofs. Regardless of the …

FACADES

Facade finishing is carried out after completion of house case construction and after roof, windows and doorways installation.

For facades finishing lot of materials are used, and such a work requires the development of stand-alone project. Facade materials should be able to provide good thermal protection of the building, to protect cladding structures from humidity, to provide moisture vapor transmission, to be durable and to have high decorative properties. Most of buildings …

WOODEN BUILDINGS

Wooden construction is traditional for Russia. Wooden houses are built for many centuries here. Wood is an accessible eco-friendly material which has many advantages and high aesthetic qualities. Thanks to modern technologies it is possible to avoid or minimize any disadvantages of wood use in building houses. The use of chamber and natural drying, bonding, impregnation and heat treatment of wood allows to achieve a resistance of wooden buildings to deformation, minimal shrinking, moisture and …

Frame construction

Light wood-frame construction originated in America over 150 years ago and quickly evolved into the predominant construction system for houses and other small-scale buildings. Today, over 90% of all new buildings in North America are made using some version of this method. Remodeling projects follow the same track.

There are many reasons why this system has been the choice of professional and amateur builders alike over the years. A principal reason is its flexibility. Because the …
