@Wakameat...be specific with details...like how many floors can one build using those waffles? I recently saw a 3 storey building that had waffles, (ground floor) but the 2nd & 3rd floor looked OK (at the moment) to say the least, Kiambu County Gov has condemned the building & the owner is crying...obviously other reasons played into it.

they are not in any way related to the structual strength of the building,so you can put as many floor as the structure foundation can allow

as a profesional in the construction industry, I would strongly advice against any non load-bearing suspended floor. The live load is very detrimental to ignore. Otherwise, just consult a profesional before rushing to those 'economic options' when developing.

@ wakanyama, good idea, I'm not a professional construction guy but from my little reading, waffles and hollow pots are good for large span construction anything above 5.5m. they say that waffles do not require beams I.e. act like flat slabs but in real sense the strips are usually heavily reinforced hence not so cheap.

they are a little bit cheaper and the best part is that you can do it slowly depending how deep your pockets are
