SERDANG: Univer­siti Pu­tra Malaysia hopes more hous­ing de­vel­op­ers will look into its re­search that al­lows houses to be built with­out columns. Its Hous­ing Re­search Cen­tre chief Prof Datuk Abang Ab­dul­lah Abang Ali said 28 such units had been made avail­able for the 2014 flood vic­tims in Dabong, Ke­lan­tan. Each unit mea­sures 600 sq ft and comes with three bed­rooms and two bath­rooms. “The struc­ture uses con­crete blocks that can be likened to Lego, and al­lows a house to be built in seven days.”
