Light Steel Structure House
The demand to reduce the energy consumption in buildings and to use recyclable materials has increased in the last decades. These concerns have the intent to create a more sustainable environment. In Europe, buildings are responsible for 40% of the energy consumption, having the space conditioning (heating and cooling systems) an important share, which also depends on climate (Santos et al. 2012). Given the high energy consumption of the buildings, the European Union established several objectives in the Energy Performance Building Directive (European Directive 2010/31/EU) regarding “nearly zero-energy buildings” for the year 2020. It is defined that not only must be increased the contribution from renewable energy sources, but also must be performed an improvement of buildings energy efficiency.
Built with cold rolling galvanized steel as main load bearing structure, thermal insulation material, acoustic material, waterproof, fireproof material as enclosure, the light steel structure house is a new multi-functional environmental friendly and energy-saving house system.
All house components are prefabricated in the factory, the workers can finish the construction with simple assembling and decoration, realizing construction modularization. It is a mature and advanced technology, as well as a future direction.
From the point of view of environmental impacts, this construction technique allows the adoption of sustainability policies that enables the long-term conservation of natural resources, harmonizing the relationship between natural environment and human construction.
1. Environmental Friendly & Energy Saving.
2. Fast Construction, save much labor cost. And the construction period cut by half.
3. Light self-weight &Save material. Reduce construction waste by 80%.
4. Safe and Durable, Earthquake proof, Typhoon proof.
5. Comfortable for living.
6. Various Options, low cost.
The light steel structure house can be used as residential house, luxury villas, apartments, vacation villages, commercial building, etc.
