Modern Concrete Fascia In Nigeria
Combining modern and country home plans can imply combining rustic materials corresponding to slate flooring, exposed ceiling beams, and kitchens with contemporary stainless-steel appliances , plastic laminated cabinets , glass shelving and butcher block countertops. The ultimate result is a up to date kitchen which is serviceable and has a comfy , rustic feel. Modern design is about easy surfaces comparable to glass and chrome steel , and the use of bold colors.

Before we go right down to the actual theme of latest house plans, you need to know the fundamental features of a modern household. For starters contemporary house plan has large windows to offer a light and comfortable atmosphere, high ceilings, versatile and steady floor plan to accommodate modern furniture and fixtures; and utilization of modern supplies, resembling glass, steel , vinyl, stone, marble, and so on.

House designs are powerful symbols that you should use to create an announcement to the world on who you are. Buildings have an extended lifespan and can continue speaking your assertion to the world lengthy after your departure. Home designs are also a mark of self-actualization.

Mid-Century Trendy house plans are rising in recognition from New York to LA and all over the place in between. These plans embody historic Eichler designs from the 1960s, as well as latest home plans impressed by the long-lasting `Case Examine ` modern houses in Los Angeles of the late Nineteen Forties and early 1950s. Led by Dwell journal , the mid century aesthetic of open plans, large home windows and minimal detailing is emerging as one of the key design tendencies of the early 21st century.

Now, this is a normal fully cast parapet, after it has been plastered.

Spyder, my only concern about concrete parapet is the additional load it creates on the building because the iron rods and concrete are quite weighty. Prof Spyder, is that concern relevant at all?

Goodnews is; the Architects at Geometrix have over the years through experience under the leadership of the meticulous Arc. Jude Uche, developed an alternative method of constructing the concrete fascia.

This method (as in sketch above) involves a pre-cast moulding of the fascia and a systematic fastening on exposed reinforcemnet bars sticking out from already existing roof beam using 6mm binding wires.

brabus: Nice roof wing. Well doneThank you my brother, I can see your roof skeletal works coming out really lovely. Neat work bro.

A lot has been said both in favor and against the concrete fascia, parapet, cornice and other styles that support the roof in modern buildings. What do you think about it?

Unfortunately, The problem with this method is that it typically consumes much more materials (steel, concrete and woodwork) and when the building(s) is a large one or are numerous, it becomes simply impractical and time consuming.

The final step is to ‘tack’ the joints properly with same binding wires and short pieces of wood which help prevent the different piecs from shifting until the final casting is done. they will be removed once the concrete sets.

the thin openings at these joints will be covered with neat mortar and painted.

I walked around a bit, and found other pre-cast parapet works still under construction, different designs of the same method……..

the straightening is done externally using a long plumb device and then held in place by wooden supports along the body of the wall. The binding wire that has been passed through openings on the pre cast concrete fascia is tied onto the top exposed bars tightly and is then covered with a second layer of concrete to hold it in place forever.

step3: CUTTING TO SHAPE: once the concrete fascia has set (usually 36 hours after molding) it can then be cut into desired lengths according to the building corners. a typical piece would be 4′ – 6′ long.

The cutting is done with a concrete sawing machine. the same type used to saw through block walls.

Conventional Nigerian builders will construct a wooden/metal formwork to the shape of the desired fascia right about the roof edge/building wall, install the reinforcement bars and cast the whole volume with concrete.

well this is the ‘text-book’ thing to do, right?

Prof Spyder, is that concern relevant at all?Thank you for this very valid concern, the parapet is very very heavy and an added load to the house.

But I believe architects and structural engineers should be able to design the house in such a way that the additional load is taken into consideration and fortifications made from the start of the building.

Re: Parapet, Concrete Fascia, and other roofing styles. by spyder880(m): 10:34pm On Sep 03, 2013

I am quite a novice in buildings and the technologies behind it. But I have one observation – these parapets definitely add aesthetic value to the buildings but must they be made of concrete which increases cost and adds more weight to the structure? Why I ask is that here in the US they have similar things on buildings (including the one I reside in) but they are made of wood or cheap light-weight synthetic stuff.

These materials have the benefit of cost and are even more maleable to artistic designs. Are those materials not suitable in the Nigerian environment or are they just not available?

spyder880: in case you like this styleNice roof wing. Well done

Take a look at the last picture, now this picture here is the top view, showing the hollow which will be filled with concrete to make the parapet, link rods of 6-8mm will still be used to connect both sides of the cast parapet to hold them together at the top.

Damn! Thanks for all this informative class.. Now I have been able to digest the constructions of pre-cast and concrete parapet.1. The way I see it, it seems that the concrete parapet holds very firmly to the building itself.

2. Does the pre-cast also hold as firmly as the concrete parapet to the building?I love them both and my future house will surely have one of the concrete parapet or the pre-cast parapet.Thank you very much Oga Spyder for the education.

The casting of a parapet with concrete……….watch the way the concrete is flowing like water, parapets are cast in very water mixtures so it can enter every nook and crannies of the beam, block holes.

Another reason we mix parapet concrete watery is for it to be smooth after the plywood is removed. Did you even know there is a special size of chipping stone for the casting of parapets?

We are on question number what Is the precast better than wall casted parapet?

There are other types of roof where the roof is enclosed inside a concrete form, not the normal parapet of these days.

I would answer the original question from the perspective of a potential Client (assuming limited technical knowledge) witha couple of question of my own:1. Comparative cost Pre-cast vs in-situ casting?2.

Are the “joints” following installation of the precast parapets likely weak points in the structural integrity of the building? I’m thinking where future subsidence or building movements could result in stresses between the roof parapet sections.

Any examples of such failures?

The precast parapet is made by mixing a strong cement-sand ratio and pouring on a flat surface arranged on the ground. Allowing it to dry and manually lifting the dried segments to be joined in bits on the topmost blocks on top of the house.

This will create a long hollow on top of the top blocks to be cast as the roof beam. Note that the precast parapet is always smoother when finished, because care was taken to smoothen it at the point of casting/pouring on the ground.

step 2: PRODUCTION: moulders are vigrously moulding the concrete fascia on site using only cement and sand. (NB: this eliminates the need for reinforcement bars in the curved concrete fascia (CCF). they are allowed to cure and set, on the ground before cutting and lifting to avoid breakages.

One strong argument supporting the pre cast fascia is that is looks very smooth, but what I like about it that it allows you to create many designs as your imaginations can allow. Look at the numerous curves on this last picture, very difficult to achieve on the normal parapet.
