LGSF Construction Benefits
Additional Benefits of LGS Constructions :
Savings on Air conditioning costs with LGS Constructions:
Kindly refer the below tabular column which will highlight the Cost savings of Air conditioning costs with Light Gauge Steel constructions.
As we have better Thermal insulation, the Cost savings are also huge. As a Builder, we need to highlight this cost benefit to the end users & prospects.
|The Impact of Good Insulation on Energy Saving in Airconditioners|
|Delta Temperature||Energy Savings||Units Saved/day||Unit Cost (INR/Unit)||Amt Saved/day (INR)||Amt Saved/Month (INR)||Amt Saved/Year (INR)|
|2 Degree Temp reduction||17%||7.65||10.00||76.50||2,295.00||27,922.50|
|3 Degree Temp reduction||23%||10.35||10.00||103.50||3,105.00||37,777.50|
|5 Degree Temp reduction||33%||14.85||10.00||148.50||4,455.00||54,202.50|
|10 Degree Temp reduction||50%||22.50||10.00||225.00||6,750.00||82,125.00|
|Considering outdoor temperature of 35 degrees for a typical 2BHK house with 3 Airconditioners with total 4.5 Ton Capacity|
Savings on Foundation:
With the light weight nature of the LGS building, you can save almost 30% on the foundation cost.
|Comparison of Weight for a 4 Storied Building designed with LGS and RCC|
|Weight Comparison of RCC Vs LGS||RCC||LGS||% Saving|
|Concrete Weight in Foundation (Tons)||420||296||29%|
|Building Weight of Structural Materials (Kg/Sq.m)||960||435||55%|
|Floor Slab weight (Tons)||425||232||45%|
Savings on Floor Slabs:
- The conventional floor slabs will need 150mm thick concrete mix, with LGS buildings, just 100mm is sufficient.
- If you use the new age decking sheets like Lewis Decksheets, the Floor slab thickness of just 50mm is sufficient.
- The Lewis Decksheets have a smaller pitch than the conventional Decksheets.
Also, there is no need to use rebars as the design of the Decksheet itself is engineered with a unique Trapezoidal design.
- These latest technologies available help us to build better, smarter more efficient Constructions.
Additional Carpet Area in LGS Constructions Vs Conventional Constructions:
Another advantage with LGS Constructions over the conventional RCC Structure is the Extra Liveable Carpet Area with an LGS Structure
