Today, construction companies that use the latest sustainable construction technologies can not only speed the development of the project as well as improve its safety but also reduce the cost of the project.
In the present era, many innovative technologies are used in the construction industry to improve the supplies of the materials and efficiency of labor from the very first day to reduce the costs as well as the time is taken in completing the project.
The information provided in this article will help you to know how Orion Road Flare has increased sustainability, safety, and speed in its construction project by using affordable and sustainable technologies.
It is not necessary for the construction material to be new before it is installed on a project, but the use of prefabricated parts of the building is gaining popularity to complete the project on time within the budget.
This technology offers several benefits, like many elements can be avoided that can delay the project by fabricating some parts of the building in a factory. Moreover, to make prefabricated parts, fewer workers are required as they are built in a well-maintained environment.
Furthermore, the use of prefabricated components ensures the safety of the workers as they need not work in dangerous conditions while installing them.
In addition, the design of certain building parts can be used repetitively so you can keep them ready in advance, which can reduce their construction cost.
BIM or Building Information Modelling Technology
BIM technology is used by the owners and contractors of a construction project to save its time and cost. In certain countries, not to use this technology in government-funded projects is against the law.
This technology allows the designers to create 3D models of the project along with providing information about the time and cost to complete it.
It can also help the contractors in manipulating the materials and methods of construction to reduce cost and time by using different materials and techniques.
Use of Virtual or Augmented reality
Usually, virtual or augmented reality is used for watching videos, but many construction companies also use it to provide safety training to their workers to enhance their safety.
Along with reading the safety tips from the book, the workers can use VR or AR to visualize what they have learned and how they can use them at the site of work.
Companies can also use AR with BIM for virtual monitoring of the project before its completion so that they can cut costs and save time by making more informed decisions in this regard.
Use of porous concrete
The concrete structures in urban areas can adversely change the ways for the land to handle rainwater.
In order to avoid such adverse effects of concrete jungles in urban areas, local governments and municipal bodies must spend a lot of public money on amending the design of inappropriately designed concrete structures and roads, etc.
The use of larger porous real stones and less sand in the construction can allow rainwater to go down into the ground instead of running off or pooling around the structure without affecting the solidarity of the structure.
It can eliminate the cost of upgrading as well as repairs of the building along with saving a lot of funds of the municipal body and government.
Use of fly ash bricks
The waste ash got from coal-fired power plants after using the coal as fuel, can also be used for making bricks instead of storing it in the ponds that can affect the quality of groundwater.
The blocks made from fly ash are more durable, lighter, and cheaper than traditional bricks. In this way, fly ash bricks can reduce the cost of the project along with reducing the problems caused by the fly ash if it is not used otherwise.
Solar materials and roads
Though it is an expensive technology to make roads by using extra-strong solar panels, it can be cost-effective in the long run.
The streets made of solar panels can provide you two types of benefits – on the one hand, you get attractive roads, and on the other hand, electric vehicles can be changed easily on the go.
Moreover, the free and clean energy generated by the roads with solar panels can also be supplied to the grid to reduce the problem of power outages.
In this way, by using sustainable & cheaper construction tech, Orion Road Flare speeds up development & safety of a construction project.
