So Many Fires- A Better Way To Build

We need to start thinking outside the box. Why can't we build homes out of concrete from top (including the roof) to bottom?

Bury the electric and plumbing in conduits within the walls. Same with the heating ducts or radiator water. This doesn't mean there wouldn't still be fires but it seems to me it would be a lot cheaper and easier to empty out room debris, hose down the walls rather then having to rebuild. I imagine the insurance costs would be less too. I thought about this when we stayed at various motels in Wildwood Crest. I can't recall ever hearing about a fire in one of them. Besides, look how long some of the ancient structures still survive.

Why shouldn't this be required for all new construction?
