Panchakanya Structural Steel is a long term project for constructing.,
Traditional Nepali houses
Panchakanya Steel Structure (PSS) presents the first of its kind multi purpore Light Gauge Steel Structure. It is developed through a cold-formed process without the use of heat.
Key requirements for educational buildings are fast construction programmes so that new buildings can be completed within one academic year, or even three months of the summer vacation in the case of building extensions, and also the flexible use of space to meet current and future educational needs. Steel construction has achieved a strong market share in all types of educational buildings for the above reasons.
Modern educational buildings are required to achieve strict performance targets, such as acoustic, thermal or ventilation requirements and also must provide flexible spaces to suit a variety of uses. There is also a need to consider how the buildings can be adapted and reconfigured to meet future educational needs. Emphasis is placed on pupil and staff satisfaction, the studying environment as well as community involvement. Therefore robust, safe and good environmental performance are also important requirements.
Attributes of steel construction in the educational sector:
- Adaptability and flexibility
Long span steel construction creates column-free space and allows rooms to be configured on the floor plan to meet the current and future educational needs.
Light steel internal walls can be relocated, leading to fully adaptable buildings to meet future needs.
Painted steel surfaces can be kept clean, and steel decking is free from dust and contamination.
Intumescent coatings for fire protection can be sprayed and dried off-site and do not produce dust or dirt.
- Acoustic performance
Steel construction can be designed to achieve levels of acoustic insulation required for teaching, including music rooms with special requirements.
- Infill and separating walls
Light steel infill walls provide a high degree of thermal insulation. Insulation material is placed outside the steel frames to create a ‘warm frame’. Light steel walls may be re-located in the future. A variety of cladding materials may be used to provide a strong visual effect.
- Environmental benefits
Steel construction is produced efficiently, waste is minimised, and steel can be reused and recycled multiple times. It does not deteriorate over time. Steel is also non-combustible and does not cause cracking due to long term creep and shrinkage.
