Civil engineering projects can help in real life applications and these projects pave way for good quality of shelter but the capital speaks a lot in these civil projects. Many people had been wasting lots and lots of money for investing in constructing buildings and this project is to determine an alternative for high cost building materials.
Civil Project’s Abstract:
The building materials for low costs can be determined by following various construction techniques and studying various case studies. A Council for Work and Housing Research (CWHR) is a branch of Research and Development which comes under the aegis of Ministry of Science and Technology has been set up to promote the scientific research on problems of different types of engineering structures such as dams, harbors, roads, buildings etc. Various construction techniques of CWHR has afforded more alternatives such as fiber cement sheets for asbestos cement, ferrocement products for Reinforced Cement Concrete (RCC) and timber etc.

Various number of case studies state more construction techniques and building materials for low cost are used. Those case studies state about the construction of low cost building namely,
- Usage of rice husk ash and lime
- Usage of soil cement stabilized blocks
- Usage of ground granulated blast furnace slag
- Usage of prefabricated roofs with slag cement
In case of building a house with materials for low cost, rice husk ash and lime are used as a partial substitute for cement and this method reduces total costs by 37% when compared to other conventional construction techniques. By using industrial waste material such as granulated blast furnace slag a room can be constructed without a cement and this method reduces nearly 25-30% of total costs when compared with other construction techniques. Even a low cost school can be constructed with soil cement stabilized blocks for building the masonry walls and slag cement is used to construct a fabricated roof.
