LIVE and WORK The dependence on oil has created the need to seek other sources of energy. Meanwhile it is wiser to reduce our use of petroleum products such as gasoline. Driving to work is eliminated when all you have to do is go downstairs to be at the work place. Live and Work condo units can be easily produced because the CRH system is ideal for the mass production required by such developments. Photovoltaic elements will serve besides to “fill the tank” of the automobiles likely to be soon available in the market for everybody owning one.CRCS – Concrete Rib Construction SystemThe CRCS is a powerful invention to produce buildings in amassive fashion using form work to pour in place concretewhich results in great savings in labor cost.CRCS is based on the T-beam shape used to handle largespans with a minimum of concrete and steel for exteriorwalls and roofs which have encased rigid insulation of anydesired R value.At right a photo of the forming which includes theinsulation and the reinforcement.And a T-beam sketch showing the basic elements: rib tohandle tension an compression stress, and the flangewhich protects the insulation from fire and acts as adiaphragm to resist shear stress.Foundation, walls and roof in CRCS together creates amonolithic structure capable of resisting natural disasters C:UserseugenioDocumentsbasics of the CRCSlive and work brochure page 1
