Steel netting for wall construction, by JK Structure

JK Structure presented its experience of building lower middle income housing in India using steel netting filled in with a concrete mix on site. The design of the ‘net’, a type of pre-fabricated box reinforcement of small section wires and bars, allowed the walls to reach sufficient load bearing strength for the housing design presented. The ease of construction, required skill, and the potential to use this technology for foundations were the main points of discussion during the display session.
