  • 2. Part 1 The building chosen for this assignment is a semi-d house at Puchong.
  • 3. Part 2 The type of foundation for this house is pad foundation. From the two columns that could be seen in this picture, it could be seen that it is from a pad foundation.
  • 4. In this house, there are two kinds of slab. They are non-suspended slab and suspended slab. The non-suspended slab could be seen on the ground floor of the house. The suspended slab could be seen from the staircase of the house.
  • 5. The type of roof for this house is pitched roof. This is because the weather in the area is humid, hence pitched roof is used avoid accumulation of water.
  • 6. Part 3 The other foundation that could be used for this building is strip foundation. This is because the house is not more than four stories high and beside the building is a hill. This means that the soil is of good bearing capacity. Other than that, piling foundation is also suitable for this building. It is because piling is very strong and durable. The other type of slabs that could be used are waffle slab and post- tensioned slab. Waffle slab is lighter and stiffer than an equivalent flat slab. While post-tensioned slab is a very efficient structure that can minimize material usages and decrease cost. The other type of roof than can be used for this building is hip roof and flat roof. Hip roof which is similar to pitched roof can be an alternative to replace the existing roof type. Flat roof which is quite modern now is also suitable for the building.
