Hydraform Interlocking Building System is greener and sustainable building system in the form of building elements, structure and building process. The entire process is environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a building’s life-cycle: from planning to design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation, and demolition.
Hydraform interlocking building system is compatible with load bearing construction and conventional framed structure building but with minimal use of steel, cement & burnt bricks that otherwise have high embodied energy.
Site soil, waste materials available on site or in vicinity can be used to make blocks on or near to construction site thereby reducing need of multiple handling. Examples are excavated site soil, post industrial waste like fly ash or marble slurry powder or post agricultural waste like rice husk ash.
Interlocking building using tongue and groove features in blocks can be much simpler, speedier, cost and time efficient
Blocks have high finishes requiring minimal mortar & plaster. Depending on application, blocks in walls can be left un-plastered or directly applied with silicon based weather coats requiring minimal maintenance. Renovations are easier to do with flexibility to work with blocks.
In case of contingent situations of demolition, maximum retrievability of blocks is possible due to interlocking nature. These blocks can be re-used in other construction application. Even the broken blocks can be pulverized into artificial sand that can be used again to make blocks.
