Urbanco’s Building Code for Binveriya Allocations Caps Height at Six Storeys
The maximum height of buildings developed on plots awarded via the government’s ‘Binveriya’ housing scheme is six storeys, Urbanco has confirmed. This is per the building code for land allocated under the scheme released on Wednesday.
The maximum height of buildings is 18.5 metres which allow for a maximum of six floors.
The height of the building shall be deemed to be from the road surface to the top of the springline or roofbeam. For buildings with terraces, the height of the building will be considered from the road surface to the top of the terrace slab or deck.
Additionally, for buildings taller than 15 metres, or five floors, a lift is mandatory.
Previously, residential buildings in Hulhumalé could be built as high as seven storeys. However, Urbanco has said that land allocated for residential use, which falls outside of the housing scheme, can now be built up to 10 stories (31 metres) high. Thus the building code for land allocated under the ‘Binveriya’ scheme differs from that of land allocated previously that does not fall within the specific scheme.
