In the last few years, Green buildings have become preferred structures. Low operating costs, improved indoor air quality and reduced carbon footprints are some of the many reasons why green construction trends are picking up. Be it residential buildings, commercial buildings, schools, hospitals or hotels, choosing environment-friendly construction materials is becoming the norm rather than an exception. If you are an architect or a civil engineer working on a green project, here’s why you should use AAC blocks:
- AAC blocks are eco-friendly: Unlike traditional red clay bricks, Shree Heat Shield AAC Blocks are made with eco-friendly materials. These eco-friendly lightweight precast building blocks ensure, less use of steel and mortar and can be easily hand-sawed into customized sizes as per requirements. Traditional red clay bricks are not just outdated but also a threat to the environment as they use organic top soil as a key ingredient, thus leading to soil degradation and also release harmful GHG (Greenhouse gases) due to inefficient combustion of coal.
- Less water is needed during construction: When you use ACC blocks, you will need 70% less water during construction as there is no curing required. Made with cement, fly ash and lime, Shree Heat Shield AAC Blocks are certified under the green rating system, this means when you use it for your project, you will gain Carbon credit points.
- It has high thermal insulation: When it comes to choosing eco-friendly construction materials, thermal insulation is a key factor. Shree AAC Block has high thermal insulation, ensuring the outside heat does not permeate inside, thus reducing the need for air-conditioning. It is estimated energy costs can be reduced by up to 30% when we use AAC blocks compared to conventional building material.
- It can have good sound insulation properties: In the construction industry, there’s a huge demand for sound insulation materials. From acoustic insulation to soundproof glasses, a lot of building materials are used to reduce outdoor noise and create a peaceful environment indoors. As AAC blocks have good sound insulation that significantly lowers outside noise levels. This is one of the reasons why ACC concrete blocks are in demand in the construction industry.
