Former classical construction methods have not been able to fulfill the rising demand for housing to satisfy many populations needs. Because of that, in the last two decades, new construction methods have been attempted, all over the world, to speed up the process and make building cheaper, while corresponding to new standards of living. One of them is the TVD System.
The TVD System comprises of design, preliminary work, construction, expense accounting and maintenance.
Expenses are successfully traced all the way, from the initial planning to final submitting of the building. Each phase is influenced by reduction of expenses and system optimization (handy erection of the panels, building floor by floor, integration of plumbing, electrical installations, pipes for water and sewage), thus reducing construction time for high quality buildings performing all construction physics criteria.
Productivity is increased by:
- eliminating unproductive work (boarding and building slabs are useless)
- reducing number of materials used to (3): steel meshes, insulating element, and cement
- eliminating need for heavy machinery and cranes on site
- reducing transport costs
- reducing the need for a large number of qualified workers by industrializing production
- gaining usable area of the building by reducing final wall dimensions
- inducing a total reduction of construction expenses up to 30%
- reduction of maintenance expenses
- reduction of heating and cooling expenses
- reduction of environmental pollution
Maintenance costs are up to 2.5 times less than for classical buildings. All these factors are influencing the attractiveness of the system, increasing the popularity of TVD latest global version. TVD is already present in Sudan, Libya, Algeria, India, and under negotiation in many other places, mainly for mass construction in high temperature environments.
