Construction of a low-cost four flats of One and Two bedroom apartment


Condition of the work: The owner specifically stressed on achieving this with a rigid budget, we believe to achieve this with few adjustments but there is an existing old structure which cannot be part of the new structure because of the assessment carry out on the old building.

However, the management of the estate could not have us demolish it before raising the the new one, we intend demolishing the old structure as we erect the new one strategically.



Size of plot ---- 80 by 40
Type of house ---- Block of flat
Location --- Enugu State
Schedule ---- Carcass construction
Completion time ---- 7 weeks

It was meant to be a remodeling but on a second thought and with the owners consent we are building a new structure entirely..

Re: Construction Of A Low-cost Four Flat by Dubemcapital1(m): 8:11pm On Jan 07, 2020
The nature of the soil here (very stony) means there will be no need for DPM though due to the cost adjustments it wasn't in the schedule.

However, casting all the way...

It would've been a huge stress working in a tight space with the old structure still standing there.

Would the old Structure be completely removed or incorporated into the new building?

I like your pace and precisely neat work, weldone

We're learning.

Thank you.

The housing cooperation in charge of the estate refused our intended plans of total demolition insisting on renovation not building a fresh house with a different house pattern in the estate so we decided to tread with caution.

We plan to build to roofing stage then we demolish the old structure that is already in the centre as advised by one of the housing officials.

So we won't incorporate it.

Thanks
