The simultaneous construction of several houses with Styro Stone is very advantageous in comparison to traditional construction.

Advantages of building with styrostones:

- Speed of construction: The structure and the insulation are done at the same time.

- Less labour intensive: One storey can be erected by 3-4 people in one day and concrete poured the same evening.

- Heavy and costly tools unnecessary: Only a handsaw and masonary drill are needed.

- Reduced instruction time: For a good shuttering carpenter, one day is sufficient.

- Reduced risk of labour accidents: Light construction material reduces operative fatigue and so reduces the risks of accidents.

- Energy saving: Double-sided insulation saves 50-70% in energy costs. Use of RR stones (neopor) creates a passive energy home.

- Structural strength: Steel reinforcement is easily placed inside the styrostone shutter, making the concrete even earthquake resistent.

Sequency of construction

Above foundation 3-4 layers will be set, levelled, squared and the trestles installed. Trestles ensure vertical alignment and facilitate a continuous level coursing for the duration of the build. The trestles also double up as a safe working platform to facilite pouring the conrete.

Construction is sequential when building several houses

The ceiling is poured without the need for further support, allowing other work (such as plumbing) to commence the following day.

Construction process resembles a conveyor belt.

Carpentry immediately follows the completion of the concrete structure.
