LOW-COST, EARTHQUAKE RESISTANT, ENERGY EFFICIENT, AND ECO-FRIENDLY HOUSING

SARID (www.sarid.net), in association with Javed Sultan, AIA, has come up with a proprietary and patented technology, which allows the use of non-structural granular material in seismic responsive structures. The structures are stable and can be designed to conform to Seismic Zone 4 ( highest ) requirements. All Building materials are locally available and the structures have a plastered and painted finish on both the exterior as well as the interior faces. The structures have very low maintenance cost, minimal life cycle cost, and high insulation value so saving on energy and operation cost. Currently the cost is projected at about Rs. 350/sf to Rs 400/sf for residential construction, and Rs. 550/sf to Rs. 600/sf for school and institutional construction(commercial). This is close to half the price of construction using existing technologies i.e. using steel or concrete masonry construction. The prices quoted above are 2005 prices for Islamabad, Pakistan. The above model (a field test model) demonstration room(12 by 12) was built in Islamabad in less than a week.

The Research and Development division focuses primarily on the international technological, environmental and developmental issues that have a direct impact on the economic and business spectrum in the sphere of Kinoo's area of work.
