MSS Homes is a company with a good experience in designing and construction of houses. We mainly consider about residential buildings other than another buildings. You can build your house either using conventional construction methods or cost effective methods. Any way we have seen that mix of all these methods is the best way.

We think it is our responsibility to inform you briefly about some of the cost effective methods you can apply.

Cost effective methods  

If you are interested in using cost effective method we can introduce you the following.

  • Slip form walls.
  • Low cost concrete slab.
  • Concrete door and window frames.
Slip form walls  
This method is introduced by engineer Kulasingha and National Engineering Research and Development(NERD) center. And we are using it successfully for last 15 years. if you are expecting to build a two storied house this will be the ideal method to use. Slip form walls are made of query dust with cement. It is very stronger than cement block walls. You can reduce the cost of foundation, walls and the plaster by using slip form walls. Once you have completed the house it will look as smooth as any other wall finish.

Low cost concrete slab  
This is also ideal for any house or any building. 2 inch thick composite slab is very suitable for any number of floors. We have used this slab very successfully for houses, stores, shops, and schools.
  What is composite slab...  
  Two inch thick concrete slab is laid on pre-cast, pre-stressed concrete beams and reinforced with 2”x2” GI mesh. Some people think that this slab is not strong enough as its thickness is only 2 inches. But we should not forget that the slab is on pre-cast beams laid at 24 inches.  
  Advantages of using this slab  
 
  • It is cheaper than the conventional slab.
  • Its weight is less than a conventional slab and therefore you can reduce the cost of beams, columns and foundation.
  • It takes very little time for construction and you need not to wait till shuttering is removed.
  • You can lay the slab room by room and you can build even a part of the building.

Concrete door and window frames.  
We have been using concrete door and window frames for a long time now. It is an ideal alternative for timber frames and it also helps keep the country green. Cost of a concrete frame is very less than that of timber frames. You can buy a best quality concrete door frames between Rs.1500.00-2000.00.While you should pay about Rs. 5000.00 only for timber for a door frame without labour charge. If you want to get timber look, concrete frames can be either painted or polished just like timber frames.

  • Very cheap.
  • Very durable.
  • No termite attack.
  • No beetle attack.
  • No decay.
