FASTEST ONE STOREY BUILDING CONSTRUCTION EVER BUILT IN 3 WEEKS & 5 DAYS by Dennis3D(m): 4:34am On Jul 30, 2018
Hello good people of Nairalander.

Start date is 14th July 2018...

As a show of confidence in what we do. I have decided to bring to you my latest ongoing construction � work happening now in PHC Rivers State. Having battled with rain. I have come to bring to your notice that this construction has a 1 month time frame to Roofing from foundation to Decking. I don't base in PH I base in Lagos so I am sticking to the time.

Demolition of existing structure and rebuilding is all embedded in this one month take note. I designed the architectural design of this structure and am still the one building it. This is actually my 5th project this year running.

What am building is no blocks. Mainly structural works to Roofing... After one month we can add blocks to the upper floor...

Sit back and relax and I share a bit of the construction images. Contact me for your designs and construction services on +2347038166370, +2348081465833

And today 30th I climbed and wet the decking. Everything came out very well. We would allow it to rest for some days before I commends the structural upper floor pillars and lintel to roof beam...

Check out the decking looks...

Why didn't you construct a "mallam step"

I actually salute him for not doing this. This is part of wastefulness that’s rampant in Nigerian builds as I discussed with AbdulWastecx a few weeks ago.

Time and cost on a scale.
The mallam step though additional cost will save him 2days plus, considering he has a time constraint of 30day.
Also he will pay more in terms of Labour to cast the upper floor in two days, whereas they could be done in a day.
In the long run what you think you are saving by not using a "mallam step" for a project of this nature, you loose in time.

Let's do the maths
1. Cost of mallam step: materials and Labour = 22k
2. Cost of not using a mallam step - Labour to cast steps only = 10k + cost of additional 2day staying in an hotel and feeding and logistics= over 22k

Emphasis on this project considering the variables

Here’s is the Achilles heels to your eloquent argument.

Is he going to cast the steps eventually?

As a client I’m saving money on materials = wood.

As a contractor I’m adding to my bottom line = efficiency. No rework.

Emphasis on the project to me is a well built structure. A timely built structure that wastes resources is not ideal.

A good contractor should be able to frame and pour a flight of stairs in a day. With the right concrete mixture and support it is ready for use immediately so zero time loss.

I’m still keeping an open mind to garner knowledge.

A good contractor should be able to frame and pour a flight of stairs in a day. With the right concrete mixture and support it is ready for use immediately so zero you will have to use a more expensive cement = more money, even at that not advisable to start walking up and down with loads of concrete. It will stress the concrete and you don't want that on a structural member time loss.

You said it all. Also what was a major constraint is space. All my 4 other projects this year has Malam steps. But they aren't built up environment like this one.

Also looking at time and cost. This method in fact rocks. Can't you see how neat the staircase looks

With my time frame. Am using a very good mixture of grade 15 and 20 concrete. That way am good to go.

Remember this is my 5th project this year and in fact my busiest year as far as building and construction is concerned and so much experience is already gathered.

I totally understand the concepts of Mallam Step and why it should be used. Believe me. In locations like Owerri. I had that experience of people not using Mallam step. You know what they say when they were seeing me construct mallam step.

"It's a waste of money and material, in fact it makes them easier for them to cast the decking". The further said that it's stressful to climb mallam step especially if it's too steep by the Carpenter and so many other excuses.

But I was wondering in the first place because I haven't done it before (casting staircase first) but have seen it done. So I decided to do this here, having a very deep knowledge of the mixture to use after all research and consultations and wide experience in the use of concrete structures this year. And believe me. See how neat this staircase is. In fact the neatest I have done so far.

You have my support for not doing double work on the steps.

What is the oldest build you’ve done and have you returned for inspection?

Thanks for sharing.

It's called Kalsi Board. POP Water resistant plasterboard can be used too or direct concrete facial casting

This and many more. But I would stop here to focus on the new project that this project is meant for.

Wait for updates today as I put up what am doing today on the saloon. Am doing the layout today after the decking have been left to rest. But the supports are all in place and reinforcements of the bracings...

Thanks for the information.

Is the Kalsi board cost effective compared to plasterboard, and will it require screeding after installation or just painting? I know it should be cheaper that concrete facia.

It's cheaper than concrete casting
