Residential buildings are ideally suited for cross wall construction. Cross-wall multi-storey structures consist of flooring and load bearing walls, where the walls support the floors and the structure above. Lateral stability is provided transversely across the building by the cross-wall system and longitudinally by stairs and lift shaft cores, which are also formed by precast wall panels.
This type of construction is ideal for buildings of a cellular structure, for example hotels, apartment blocks or other types of housing.
