The implementation of the library through the existing ramp from the role of one building to become Ground + Doreen using light steel technology and slabs Vrosemnt.

The technology was developed with funding from the Science and Technology Development Fund and the University of Cairo and the college.

Egyptian team: Principal Investigator Prof. Metwally Abou-Hamad net finished Structural Engineering Department, Department of Structural Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Cairo University and the work includes professors from the college and the National Center for Research on the housing and construction team, as well as professors at the Universities of Johns Hopkins and Virginia Tech in the United States. Were carried out all the necessary tests to verify the efficiency of the system in carrying loads expected in addition to test the efficiency of the fire and acoustic insulation resistance in Cairo Engineering Lab and the National Center for Research on housing and construction. The cost of implementation is less than the cost of traditional construction by more than 20%, in addition to the advantages of speed and ease of installation, and the possibility of recycling and sustainability. The building is an example of a realistic idea of the research was funded, developed and implemented on the ground, and can be used in solving the housing problem.
