P. P. Bhangale | Ajay K. Mahajan


Abstract: Low cost housing construction technologies aim to cut down construction cost by using alternatives to conventional methods and Input. It is effective budgeting and technique which help in reducing cost of construction through use locally available material along with improve skills and technology without sacrificing the strength, performance and life of structure. Low cost housing merely satisfies the most bottom and fundamental human needs for shelter and neglects other needs that people aspire home including psychological, social, and aesthetic needs and ultimately, need for self-actualization. This paper examined the cost effectiveness of using low cost housing technologies in comparison with the traditional construction methods. It was found that about 26.11 % and 22.68 % of the construction cost, including material and labor cost, can be saved by using the low cost housing technologies in comparison with traditional construction methods for walling and roofing respectively.
