ISTANBUL - MİLLİYET
Kocaeli-based Yılpaş İnşaat is undertaking the construction of Beytepe Konakları, which is located on an area of 11,000 square meters and comprised of six blocks in Kocaeli's Gebze district.
Each block has four garden floors, eight regular floors and four duplex roof units, while the project encompasses a total of 110 houses. The size of the houses with 3+1, 4+1, 5+1 and 6+1 floor plans varies between 150 and 412 square meters. The prices of the houses at Beytepe Konakları begin at YTL 300,000 and reach YTL 750,000.
Beytepe Konakları is built with reinforced concrete and the houses have special earthquake shelters in which iron reinforcement bars are applied, said Cihan Calp, project manager of Beykent Konakları. Calp underlined that these rooms, which are constructed in the corners of the houses, have walls with a thickness of 30 centimeters. �The walls of these rooms are attached to the core of the building with top to bottom side beams. That is to say, these walls will never collapse under an earthquake,� said Calp.
