Chartered surveyor Ian Rock explains the options for the ground and first floor structure for new homes and extensions including timber and concrete Today, nearly all new houses employ beam and block construction for their ground floors. Hollow Core Ground Floors — An Even Quicker Solution.
The floor has four slab panels with each panel 18.strengthened by the formation of a rib of width equal to that of the bearing.95m on the longer span and 7. DESCRIPTION OF THE SUSPENDED FLOOR The suspended floor visited was the first floor with the use of hollow clay pot construction. The arrangement on the hollow

1 Introduction; 2 Solid ground floor; 3 Suspended timber floor; 4 Suspended concrete floor; 5 Ribbed floor; 6 Hollow pot floor; 7 Raised floor According to Approved Document C, a the 'lower horizontal surface of any space in a building including finishes that are laid as part of the permanent construction.'.
cast in-situ floor slabs could be summarized as follows: Construction of formwork, Placing of reinforcements, Pouring of concrete or casting and removal of formwork (Rupasinghe & Nolan, 2007); under these four steps, the construction process of monolithic solid slab and hollow clay pot slab will be examined. Monolithic
Clay pot or blocks can be used. Blocks may be concrete blocks or styro-foam. The major advantage of these floor is the reduction in weight achieved by removing part of the concrete section below the neutral axis and replacing that with lighter weight materials. These types of construction are economical for
Hollow clay pot slabs are usually constructed with fewer concrete and reinforcement compare with solid slab. Hollow blocks Formwork construction: This is done either by laying the formwork to cover the floor area and then lay the pots on them, or laying the formwork just directly under the ribs of the pot
method of any cast in-situ floor slabs could be summarized as follows: Construction of formwork, placing of reinforcements, Pouring of concrete or casting and removal of formwork. (Rupasinghe & Nolan, 2007); under these four steps, the construction process of monolithic solid slab and hollow clay pot slab will be examined
confirmed, but from initial inspection they appear to be of clay hollow pot (or similar) construction. The second floor structure appears to be as per first floor in the southern wing of the building. 3.2.7 Third Floor Roof. The third floor is set within a single-storey mansard roof which has a footprint slightly smaller
In February 2012, a building collapsed while under construction in Mwiki,Kasarani. The building floor slab was constructed using clay brick hollow pot technology. The Langata Southern Bypass opposite Carnivore building that collapse also had utilized the same hollow pot floor slab technology.
Due to its congested city-centre location, its complexity and sequence of construction, the project generated a wide range of challenges. These included Clay pot and concrete rib floor slabs were used in the eastern half; the western half was steel filler joists and concrete-infilled triangular clay pot slabs.
Hollow Clay Pots. At one time hollow clay pots were used to form the voids between ribs in trough slabs. In the UK, they have now been replaced by removable trough forms or lightweight concrete blocks and are normally no longer used. Acknowledgement: The Concrete Society.

Structural clay tile describes a category of burned-clay building materials used to construct roofing, walls, and flooring for structural and non-structural purposes, especially in fireproofing applications. Also called building tile, structural terra cotta, hollow tile, and clay block, the material is an extruded clay shape with
Self-bearing beam and pot floors, with prestressed I-joists, will continue to be used without any competition in rural constructions, where means of elevation are scarce In building construction that demands speed and resistance, prestressed hollow core slab and prefabricated 'double I' pieces also have an assured future.
Hollow clay pots (or tiles) were first used in the early part of the 20th century as a means of constructing fire proof floors and reducing some of the dead loads of solid construction.Early systems relied in some cases upon iron reinforcement bars laid between the blocks, whilst others were.

Different materials were introduced to the floor construction suggesting that there were difficulties in obtaining items in the aftermath of the First World War. These floors comprised the Kleine system with hollow clay blocks, 6" wide and 10" long, long laid and jointed in cement mortar reinforced with a thin steel strip.
As was common for its time, the building's construction featured hollow clay pot floor slabs, supported on a concrete-cased steel frame. This comprised rolled sections with riveted flange plates and supported the floor slabs and masonry external walls. The hollow pot slab form of construction is notoriously
