Building Technology


Flooring is often of terracotta tiles or colour oxides. The bed is made out of broken brickbats (this saves wastage of brick), over which a 3” mortar layer is laid and tiles are placed over it. Various patterns and designs are worked out, dependent upon shape, size of tiles, span of flooring, and clients’ personal taste.

These tiles require little maintenance and are cheap. Also the patterns of tiles are visually attractive. Most commonly, tile shapes include square, rectangular, hexagonal, triangular or can be customized. Also, electrical cables can be run through these floors.

Another method of handling flooring is poured cement with colour oxide finishes, usually in red, black, or ochre, and sometimes with red for most of the floor and black as a border.
