Rancho Cordova Gets Eco Friendly Apartment Community by KTGY Architecture Design

City of Rancho Cordova Welcomes New KTGY designed Eco Friendly Apartment Community. The cost of housing is witnessing a steady increase in human population threatens to exceed available space. This resulted in large increases in apartment communities under construction, whose designs are negligible at best.Certainly provide people with accommodation, but many do in a way that the lack of style and hospitality. This is why the ecological community of apartments designed to use KTGY deserves for its beautiful architecture and ecological characteristics.

KTGY Group Inc. is an award-winning company, which took the project (Phase I) to the intersection of Rancho Cordova in Sacramento, California. The result is an apartment community that offers affordable housing for people without compromising on the essentials of housing, while the integration of eco-friendly facilities. The community consists of 12 two-bedroom and six three-bedroom apartments built in an area previously occupied by a seedy motel.

SUDU-The Sustainable Urban Dwelling Unit

The Sustainable Urban Dwelling Unit (SUDU) combines past technologies from different continents, resulting in a new approach to low-tech construction adapted to specific local conditions. Affordable housing that is affordable and long lasting dream of urban planners in developing countries, where large numbers of urban poor are forced to live on the streets or in temporary housing. The Sustainable Urban Dwelling Unit (Sudu) is a type of design that aims to achieve environmental and economic sustainability in the urban areas of poor African countries like Ethiopia, eliminating dependence on imported building materials and expensive such as steel and concrete.Ethiopia has little material and financial resources. With a booming population and you are sure to go up ten times in the coming years there will an increased demand for housing for the urban poor.

The Sustainable Urban Dwelling Unit (SUDU) is a double building, made entirely of locally available stone and soil, resulting in a modest home at low cost to the poor. By combining the vaults of the tambourine and compressed earth blocks, an ecologically balanced sustainable structure can be created without the need for steel, concrete or wood to support the floors, ceilings and roofs.

The soil and rocks have less towing capacity, so we build with these materials requires structural solutions based on compression. In The Sustainable Urban Dwelling Unit (SUDU), the construction technique is based on the use of cement stabilized pressed bricks and African soil, which use locally available soil. This method is called compressed earth block (BTC) of the construction.

The soil is rich in clay particles available locally. The Sustainable Urban Dwelling Unit (SUDU) techniques used for constructing rammed earth of the first floor of the building structure with a wall 60 cm wide. The roofs and floors of the building is constructed with a jumping technique crockery. In this technique, sun-dried tiles are used for the first floor and silt is used for the roof, both made of the same land. Furthermore, this technique does not require roof structure, which eliminates the dependence of the timber. In general, an environmentally sustainable home for the urban poor.
