How is the work of Building a new house in Maldives?
1. Research and Regulations:
- Local Regulations: Understand the local building codes and regulations in the Maldives. Regulations regarding construction, land use, and environmental impact assessments may vary between different islands and atolls.
- Permits: Obtain all necessary permits and approvals from local authorities. This might involve submitting detailed plans and getting environmental clearances.
2. Choose a Prefab Design:
- Choose Your House Plan: You can send your custom house plan or we can draw floor plans for you. You can choose colors/patterns and other details by your request.
3. Site Preparation:
- Land Survey: Conduct a land survey to understand the topography and any specific requirements for your chosen prefab design.
- Utilities: Ensure access to utilities such as water, electricity, and sewage. Prefab homes can be designed to be self-sufficient, but you need to plan for these utilities during the site preparation phase.
4. Foundation and Infrastructure:
- Foundation: Depending on the site conditions, your prefab home might require a specific type of foundation. Consult with a local engineer to determine the suitable foundation type for your location.
- Infrastructure: Plan for the necessary infrastructure, such as septic systems, wells, or renewable energy sources if you want your prefab home to be off-grid.
