Johor, Mersing - 241 units of medium cost double storey terrace houses

This is a value engineering design project and also the 1st use of RC shear wall in the real sense of a vertical load taking structure.
There are 241 units of double storey medium cost terrace house with RC wall and footing at grade Using RC shear walls as the vertical load taking members, the concentrated column loads are redistributed along the walls. this then allowed very economical and easy construction foundation design. Merging the footings with the ground slab and omitting ground beam, speed up the ground structure construction. The ground slab casting were done in 8 day time after completion of earthwork platforms. Use of RC shear walls on the 1st floor to 'hang' the 1st floor slab, eliminate the need of edge beam around the staircase opening.

Completed building

1st floor RC shear wall being constructed.

One concrete casting completed all under ground structure together with the ground slab

Use of 1st floor shear wall to hang the 1st floor slab eliminate beam at the edge of staircase opening. Help to reduce construction cost and improve clear ceiling height.
