Urban population in Kenya is rapidly growing posing a major challenge in housing that has seen majority of urban inhabitants reside in informal settlement commonly known as slums. With a deficit of 250,000 thousand housing units per annum, new cheaper building technology in Kenya are expected to
This method is much cheaper than the much hyped concrete waffles as no form work is required. The hollow pot beams cast on the ground and allowed to cure for 21 days. They are placed on top of the ring beam and BRC reinforcements are then placed on top. Concrete of about 2 inches (50mm) is then cast on top of the
At one time hollow clay pots were used to form the voids between ribs in trough slabs. In the UK, they have now been replaced by removable trough forms or lightweight concrete blocks and are normally no longer used. Acknowledgement, The Concrete Society.

The building floor slab was constructed using clay brick hollow pot technology. This technology introduces hollow clay bricks into the slab .The hollow parts reduce the volume of the concrete hence reduces the cost as compared to the usual reinforced concrete slab which is usually 150mm thick. Hollow pot
cast in situ floor slabs could be summarized as follows: Construction of formwork, Placing of reinforcements, Pouring of concrete or casting and removal of formwork (Rupasinghe & Nolan, 2007); under these four steps, the construction process of monolithic solid slab and hollow clay pot slab will be examined. Monolithic

1 Introduction; 2 Solid ground floor; 3 Suspended timber floor; 4 Suspended concrete floor; 5 Ribbed floor; 6 Hollow pot floor; 7 Raised floor; 8 Plenum; 9 Floating floor Very broadly, floor construction tend to be solid floors, built up from the ground, or suspended floors, supported by wall structures.
Here, we will discuss the two most common floor types in Nigeria : Solid floor slab and Hollow pot slab. We will compare and contrast both slabs and attempt to advice the best to be used out of the two. Also read: Construction costs jumps by 32% WHAT IS A SLAB A slab is the part of a building known as
formed using clay hollow pot void formers. The ground floor is a suspended solid reinforced concrete podium structure with downstand reinforced concrete beams over the lower courtyard floor. The lower courtyard floor construction is generally reinforced concrete slabs and retaining walls. The tenth floor was a later.
