Arussi Constructions - Advanced Construction Methods for Private Houses - High-Quality Fast Prefabricated Construction


FAQ

  •  What is the cost of an advanced construction residence with Ytong walls?
    • Residential buildings featuring advanced construction (also called prefabricated construction) are priced according to the architectural plan and specifications. The price is determined according to a number of variables such as the type and depth of the foundations, the roof, the aluminum specifications, etc. In general, the average price for a residence with Arussi’s construction specifications (see specifications at the Private Houses page) is approximately NIS 7,000 per m₂ including all finishing works. The price does not include plot development and connection to infrastructure, which is determined according to the sanitary plan and the development plan.

  •  Is there a need for a building permit?
    • Yes, as with any construction project, a building permit is mandatory.

  •  What foundations does a private house in advanced construction has?
    • The type of foundations is determined according to the type of soil, and the mechanical properties of the soil in the designated area. In sandy soils, well or plate type foundations can be laid.

  •  Does construction adhere to standards?
    • Yes, absolutely. All construction materials we use are standardized, including IS 931, 921 and 755, among others. We adhere to all required standards. In addition, the company has an ISO9002 certificate, and all manufacturing procedures meet this standard.

  •  How long does it take to build a 120m₂ House?
    • Construction duration is approximately 7 months from the beginning of works at the site.

  •  Is it possible to get a mortgage on homes in advanced construction?
    • Yes. You can get a mortgage, in some cases banks require to see the foundations at the site before approving the mortgage.

  •  Are houses or buildings in advanced construction earthquake resistant?
    • Yes. Buildings based on steel constructions are more resistant to earthquakes than concrete structures, as steel is a flexible material capable of absorbing the stresses and deformations created in a structure during an earthquake, as opposed to concrete, which is a crisp material that breaks or cracks when under shear stress typical of earthquakes.

  •  Why aren't all houses built using this method?
    • Conventional construction in Israel, based on a skeleton frame and concrete walls without insulation materials, is a direct continuation of the traditional construction methods that have been common in the Middle East for decades. Characteristically it employs very low thermal insulation and outdated working methods.

      In the developed Western world, in European countries, the USA, Australia etc., most construction is carried out with multilayered walls, similar to the construction that Arussi implement in Israel. Some of the layers are thermal insulation, which fits the local climate and lifestyle.

      This method is characterized by high thermal insulation, greater precision, and greener and more efficient building values than those common in the outdated construction industry.

      Nowadays, more and more customers are aware of the differences between the methods, and the benefits of prefabricated construction, and choose to build their home using the advanced construction method.

  •  For how many years has Arussi been building residential homes?
    • We are using modern and advanced methods since 1972. The first time we built dwellings using these methods was in the early 1990s, about 25 years ago.
