Common Problems with Conventional Wet Construction Methods

and how they can be solved with Dry Construction Methods

1. Dry Construction methods have higher

Thermal and Sound Insulation

When compared with traditional building envelopes. This can be achieved by fiberglass batts, spray foam, rockwool, loose fill cellulose, and sealants.

2. Dry Construction methods optimize the

Construction Timelines

There’s an approximate saving of 70% on the construction time in comparison to conventional masonry and other wet work techniques.

3. Dry Construction methods offer

Ease of Construction

This technique is 8-10 times lighter than traditional brick and cement work. It is available as pre-fabricated and modular systems ready to be installed on the site without any complications.

4. Dry Construction methods are

Highly Durable with Ease of maintenance

when employed in place of traditional materials and techniques because this lightweight technique is moisture resistant, fire proof, assembled out of metal, has lower self-load, and can be repaired without causing damage to any other building part.

5. Dry construction methods have higher

Cost Optimization and Energy Efficiency

in comparison to traditional techniques, because of reduced construction times, less wastage of material, pre-fabricated assemblies that are easy to install, lesser chance of error and rework, resilience towards external factors, and ease of maintenance.

6. Dry Construction methods provide greater

Freedom of Spatial Design

than conventional masonry as it can be altered easily with changing functional or expansion demands. It can allow spaces to be designed with large spans unconstrained to orthogonal structural grids. It can be dismantled and re-constructed when in need for maintenance or transformation.

7. Dry construction methods generate

Less Construction waste

than traditional processes because this light weight technique reduces the use of water. It incorporates standard pre-fabricated assemblies with no need for approximations. It is recyclable, and can be repaired without destroying anything in vicinity. This minimizes the environmental impact of construction processes.

8. Dry construction methods allow maximum

Control over indoor environment

when compared to wet construction methods because the air conditioning losses are minimized, edges are sealed off, envelope is well insulated from external weather conditions, and energy consumption can be efficiently monitored and optimized.

9. Dry construction methods portray

Contemporary & Modern aesthetics

than conventional brickwork, plaster and paint. Modern aluminum, copper, polycarbonate, and glass façade systems not only provide higher building performance and cost efficiency but also enhance the overall look and feel of the building without much need of maintenance and complicated assembly.
