Floating Structures: a better, more environmentally responsible practice for developer in building on water vs land reclamation

The heated debate around Benoa Bay (Teluk Benoa) in Bali has been ongoing for many months, in which a lot of efforts and cost have been incurred on both sides of the fence. Both sides have compelling reasons for their stance. The developers see Benoa Bay as very strategic to extend Bali Island’s tourism industry growth, due to its very close proximity to the airport, Nusa Dua, area, the sea, and Denpasar itself. Those opposed to it cite environmental issues – that the area’s mangrove forest will be destroyed, that aquatic life and the water current pattern will forever be altered. They are right – the moment a body of water is reclaimed,, buried with soil and sand, the aquatic biota of the area ends.So is there a viable compromise to this situation? Making the development floating over water is possibly one of them. b-foam floating structure solution is EPS foam based platform, which offer very long and maintenance-free service life (warranty is 30 years for buoyancy capacity), exceptional safety factor (virtually unsinkable because there is no hollow air cavity inside the pontoon module), and high load capacity. b-foam floating structures has been successfully employed to build many floating facilities at the popular Lembang Floating Market, a 2 story floating restaurant on Kahayan River, Palangkaraya (Central Borneo), and transport floating platform to carry solid concrete tetrapods (1.2 tons each).

4 Mistakes in House Renovation that Cause It to Be Overbudget

This New Year many people may have a plan to renovate their house to make it more beautiful and livable. Budget is an important issue when it comes to house renovation. You would not want the renovation to become overbudget before it is finished or during the process. To avoid such a problem, you had better avoid making these mistakes. 1. Lack of Planning: Beginning the renovation without carefully planning it before can lead to increased cost unexpectedly. For example, if you have no plan in advance and you keep changing the plan as the renovation goes, the cost will increase endlessly. Or, if you buy materials before planning, you may have bought more than necessary or those that are not to be used for the renovation. 2. Lack of Consultation with Experts: Some types of renovation may affect the structure of the house such as kitchen enlargement or mezzanine extension. If the existing structure is not strong enough to bear additional weight, the house may subside or crack which will cost you even more for the maintenance. So, it is important to consult with experts before the renovation begins to make sure that everything can go as planned. 3. Being Uncareful about Contractor: Unqualified contractors can delay the renovation or make it understandard, causing you to spend more money on maintenance later. Plus, paying the contractor fully before the renovation is begun or inappropriate tranches of payment may allow them to abandon their work and thus cause you to lose money and time to find a new one. 4. Being Unnecessarily Economical: Some people may want to save cost by selecting material with low prices without considering their quality, but these materials can be broken easily which will cost even more for maintenance in the long term. Other people may try to renovate the house by themselves to save cost, but since renovation actually requires skilled people, the renovation may not be successful, unsafe, or understandard. They may have to spend more later on hiring experts to mend the wrongly renovated parts.

Urgent Call to Builders: Get Rid of All the Bricks

Do you remember the story of Disney’s Sleeping Beauty? Knowing that the your Princess Aurora had been cursed to get stung by the needle on a spinning wheel, her royal parents ordered all the spinning wheel in the country to be burned, but they forgot one at the attic in the castle’s tower. And so, with the spell of the evil queen, Princess Aurora was led upstairs to use the spinning wheel, and there she got stung by the needle, and fell into the coma planned by the evil queen.In our homes, we always have these cursed spinning wheel around, deadly time bombs that will readily harm the residents of the home during severe earthquake. They are the bricks. Mostly loose, unsupported and unreinforced, and merely rely on the plaster to keep them together. It amazing to think that in 2015, we human still resort to non-reinforced brick masonry, even in the most earthquake-prone regions, and even in the upscale development, where both the income level and the sophistication of the residence should be looking for a more advanced, safer alternative.What about lightweight bricks? Lightweight masonry, so long as they are not reinforced, would be just as dangerous. Although lighter than concrete or conventional red bricks, these large sized lightweight bricks falling down from a story worth of height, can easily maim and kill building occupants.By employing b-panel (as well as similar Structural Insulated Panels/SIPs), the concern of falling brick debris during earthquake is completely solved, as there is no loose bricks in the structure of the building. All wall surface is reinforced with densely spaced steel wire matrix, which makes the wall in effect a structural shear wall (and a thermally and acoustically insulated one at that). In a b-panel building, the walls are one extremely rigid, monolithic structural unit. Even in the most severe earthquake, the failure characteristics of b-panel wall is not catastrophic. The plaster will cracks and loosen, but not in a big, heavy chunks that can be lethal if hitting humans as in the case of bricks.But old habits die hard. Even in recent b-panel projects, it was found that some contractor still use bricks to cover areas that was not covered by b-panel (mostly due to estimation error), such as triangular area under the roof ridge. (“Ampig” in Indonesian). This is the lone yarn machine in the Sleeping Beauty story. The b-panel wall will stay safely intact during earthquake, but the home occupant might still get hurt by the sudden falling bricks from beyond the ceiling. There is no Prince Charming to give the wake up kiss to the fallen victims of bricks. Another example is loose bricks used for mosque architectural details – it is ironic if a place of worship become a dangerous place during natural disaster instead of a place of shelter it was intended to be.The practice of using unsupported masonry, especially for public service facilities, such as schools, hospitals/clinics, place of worships, government buildings, and communication shelters, must be eradicated. If this is still done because of cultural and behavior inertia, more effort to educate the market needs to be done. However, it is deeply unethical, if the architect, owner, or contractor still build this way even if the potential danger of unsupported masonry is already known.
