Re: Regarding Building Materials in Various Countries

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Though I cannot help in getting to the material specifications of the 
two countries in question, I can certainly tell that for developing and 
undeveloped countries the best building material is concrete (insitu) 
for non industrial structures and structural steel (weldable quality) 
for industrial structures.
