Lattice + infill material + structural fill = wall
Modular building systems
At implementing the modular construction with the SISMO panels, external and internal walls are drawn in elevation and in section using the modular dimensions (15cm high, 10cm wide) of the lattice as a unit.
Openings are defined in module units. The corners of rectangular openings correspond to the corners of the lattice. Slanting and arched openings are also possible. Curves, pitches and starting points can all be freely determined. The tops and sides of openings are closed off with infill panel.
The SISMO modules are placed one against one another, making up the design of the area. It is possible to use a module of 10x10cm; however, it may well happen that it is departed from, so that more attention must be paid to how the lattices should be assembled. The architect does not have to decide which lattices and walls ends run or at corners and T-junctions.
In the modular construction, every effort should be made to ensure that the lattices are assembled in such a way that their length is always a multiple of 10cm.
Tips and Techniques for modular construction with the SISMO panels
Openings are determined in terms of lattice modules. The corners of rectangular openings correspond to the corners of the lattice. Slanting and arched openings are also possible. Curves, pitches, starting points can be determined at will.
2- Level of floor Slabs
The level of the upper side of unfinished floor slabs must correspond to that of a vertical 15 cm module, so that the walls can be continued in 15cm module, so that the walls can be continued in 15cm modules.
The lattices of outside walls should by preference be allowed to continue past connecting internal walls. Where lattices meet, one side of the lattice not being continued should connect up to the 10cm module of the lattice which is being continued.
4- Corners and T junctions
Corners and T junctions are formed by placing the lattices against one another, so that the lattice continues past the other.
