Kit hall construction - the cost effective option
Kit halls can be implemented as steel-structured halls or other hall construction types and, through their use of certain standard-issue components, are particularly cost-effective. Standardised mechanical engineering and the predetermination of the more detailed craftsmanship keep costs down, without compromising flexibility with regard to layout or use.
Costs associated with kit halls
The exact costs that arise when erecting a kit hall depend on the type of hall, its size, the desired out-fitting, and the on-site conditions. The special thing about kit halls is that particular elements can be specified in advance. This means that the framework can be readied beforehand, and that, with certain building methods, elements of the structure are already type-tested prior to assembly. In part, the construction elements for a kit hall are available in stock and must simply be mounted into the structure on-site. With regard to cost, kit hall construction has several advantages, including shorter construction times and the reduced amount of material and manufacturing costs derived from standardised mass production of components. From the first design concept onwards, individual construction components are selected for optimal efficiency and cost-reduction.
Kit hall construction methods
In general, kit halls can be equally implemented as steel halls or concrete halls. Lightweight construction methodology is also an option. According to the choice of material and structural system, post-and-beam construction is employed for the load-bearing structure or ferroconcrete, surface-based support frameworks may also be used. Where framework girders are used, the wall, ceiling and roof structures act as braces and are also the components used to demarcate internal rooms. The use of a wide range of façade technologies and materials, such as aluminium alloys or fibre cement, gives the hall its architectural outer appearance. In matters of roof construction, too, kit halls provide flexibility. A pitched-roof hall, for instance on a machining hall, is just as possible as a mono-pitch or flat roof.
Overview of kit hall advantages
As prefabricated buildings, kit-halls can be viewed as pre-designed halls, where various elements of the planning and implementation of the construction are standardised. One of the greatest advantages of the category is therefore the economy that results from short construction times and only moderate construction expenses. Further advantages of kit halls include:
- well-established construction methods and well-engineered craftsmanship
- high-value materials, efficiently implemented
- cost-effective and needs-oriented mass production
- high degree of flexibility with regard to the floor plan layout
- low-cost foundations and minimal requirement for construction material, resulting from well-understood mechanical engineering calculations
Kit halls can be put together using a wide variety of construction methodologies and also employed for many categories of hall building: the method is equally suitable for commercial halls, industrial halls, warehouses, and production halls.
Please get in touch if you are planning the construction of a hall or office building. For hall construction projects, kit halls often present an attractive alternative method. Out architects and construction engineers can gladly establish whether, in light of your requirements and intended usage, a kit hall could be the right solution for your specific project.
