Sabi ng Mr. ko mas-matibay 'daw ang pre-fabricated blocks at mas-madali pang maka-buo ng bahay.

Hollow blocks or solid concrete wall? what is better in constructing a house...

Kung Residential building masmaige ang hollow blocks wall with plain finished plastering...pero kung warehouse o bodega at ang usage is light-heavy o heavy, mas maige po na solid concrete wall ang first 7 to 10 feet from the floor line...(steel bar reinforcements differs according to structural designs)...
 
yun namang precast wall construction method, ginagawa po ito sa mga "volume' o maramihang low cost housing construction kasi mabilisan, pero usually ang thickness nito ay 2" lamang...
 
Kaya mas-maige pa rin ang hollowblocks kasi 4'' ang thickness ng hollowblocks plus plastering pa on both side eh di more or less 6'' ang finished wall...(of course, reinforcing steel bars differs with that of precast)...

kung may question po kayo about buiulding design and construction feel free to email me...thanks!!!

depende sa laki ng itatayo mo... kung isang bahay lang ang gagawin mas ok gumamit ng hallow blocks.. meron namang hollow blocks na fiber reinforced kaya matibay din. Mas titibay nga lang ito kung maayos ang palitada at laman sa loob.
Pre cast fabricated wall naman kapag madamihan or malaking project ang gagawin like mall or buildings. dahil kung single house lang gagawin mo sayang naman ang irerent mo ng heavy equiptmnt paralang maginstall ng 8-10 pcs ng fabricated wall.

hindi nyo kailangan ng heavy equipment kung solid concrete wall kasi buhos po yun lahat hindi sya pre-cast...

kung hindi pre cast ang solid concrete wall na gagamitin vs hollow block, ill go for the solid concrete wall if i have the budget for the reasons:
1. safety
2. durability
3. Energy efficiency

mas maganda ang pre-cast panel system. mas matibay na, mas mabilis pang mabuo ang bahay..
malaki ang tibay nito kaysa hollow blocks.

Kung isang bahay lang naman ang gagawin mo hollow blocks... pero maikli lang buhay nito...

pero kung "Buhos" at hindi slab o di kaya precast, e, naku po parang fortress bahay mo na de-bato...

baka pati paglindol hindi mo maramdaman...

iyong foundation obviously buhos... ang mga biga buhos...

ang pader buhos... ang flooring sa second floor buhos ang bubong buhos....

palagay ko ang tibay mo ng bahay mo nito...

pang-long term investment ang pagtayo ng bahay mo nito...
