Monolithic-frame construction is a technology for erecting buildings based on a monolithic frame, in which the walls are built of brick or cellular concrete. If brick is used as a building material, the technology is called monolithic-brick, and it has its own characteristics, we will consider them further.
What is a monolithic brick house
A monolithic-brick house is a building with a solid reinforced concrete frame and external brick walls. By combining Monolith and brickwork, developers have achieved good performance of structures, reliability and high construction rates.
Features of monolithic-brick houses
The frame of the house is erected by pouring the solution into the formwork – a structure for the formation of reinforced concrete elements. Metal reinforcement is used to strengthen the cast molds inside them.
The Monolith itself practically does not shrink, it is one-piece, has no seams and allows you to implement any architectural solutions. And its performance is a little worse. So, reinforced concrete is distinguished by high heat and sound conductivity, and it also poorly regulates the microclimate, because it does not breathe.
To compensate for this, the walls are laid out of brick, insulated and lined with brick. As a result, the operational characteristics of housing can be optimized – apartments in monolithic-brick houses are warm and comfortable.
