Not everyone likes change. It challenges our confidence and creates uncertainty. But what if the change meant achieving the same results quicker and more efficiently?
This sums up lightweight construction. It’s the technology of the building industry but not everyone’s ready to adopt it. However those that have are benefiting from the many advantages the products and process provides. In particular, residential developers are turning to lightweight for faster turn around and to on-sell the advantages to their customers.
AAC is a proven building product that has been used in Europe for more than 70 years, and in Australia for over 20 years. It’s made by mixing an expanding agent to concrete, causing tiny air bubbles to form. The cement is then cured in a heated environment, and while soft, sliced to size. Panels or blocks are formed then steam cured in an autoclave, making them strong and contributing to their much valued thermal and acoustic capability.
AAC, along with other more recent innovations in lightweight building materials, such as polystyrene and other such external claddings, continue to evolve to deliver substantial advantages to builders and the people who will inhabit the building once completed. Some of these benefits include:
