Sustainable Development Flood Proof House, Kelantan
Ideas : Floods resistance house - the BAH House
Flood-proofing is any measure - structural or nonstructural - intended to prevent damage from flooding to a building.
Flood-proofing requires that home owners, builders, architects, engineers and planners, engage in detailed assessment of the feasibility of building in high-risk flood-prone areas.
Besides structural measures, flood-proofing also covers the preparation of plans to initiate standby or emergency measures in anticipation of a flood, such as sandbagging, moving furniture and valuables to high floors, blocking openings or safely evacuating the premises.
Flood-proofing is not a cure for all flood problems. It is just one of the many available flood damage reduction tools.
Factors to Considered in designing BAH House. - Flood Resistance
Sustainable building development must therefore reduce energy consumption for both the transportation and building costs, as well as the living costs, enabling people to efficiently use energy, water and other resources in their day to day life. The common objective is that building should reduce the overall impact of the built environment on human health and the natural environment.
- Recycled Materials
Reducing, reusing and recycling minimize the amount of waste people generate. When people throw those items away, they send them to landfills where they may take centuries or longer to break down completely. Reducing, reusing and recycling help reduce humanity's environmental footprint, carbon dioxide emissions and energy use and limits the amount of landfill space people create
Dismantling, sometimes called deconstruction, largely reverses the steps of a home construction project. Dismantling a house is time-consuming, hard, physical work. The amount of effort required should be weighed against the value of the materials that can be salvaged.
- Lightweight & Fast Construction
Lightweight building materials are ideally suited to a wide range of modern building styles from traditional to contemporary. They can be moulded or routed to create interesting visual effects, and are easy to store and transport, thereby reducing their environmental footprint.
- Modular Design
Modular housing construction allows for hundreds of options and design possibilities, owner you can modify or upgrade general construction specifications, design your own floor plans and elevations, pick the style of windows or siding, choose colors of vinyl, the possibilities are endless.
- Cost Effective
Building a home often is the single most expensive purchase people make, and the cost to build a new home can be even higher. Everyone wants to get the most house for their money, but poor planning or a lack of construction industry knowledge can add thousands to a new-house price tag.
