Topic: Ferrocement channels roofing Vs Rcc slab

My house is constructed 16 years ago in load bearing construction and it is in good condition. I am thinking to construct 2 bed rooms and 1 toilet on first floor with rat trap bond walls and ferrocement roofing channels. will it be structurally stable and strong enough as compared with English bond walls and rcc slab roof?

Dear Sameer
        For strength of wall English bond is necessary. As you want top roof with ferro-cement roofing channel this is good have less load than RCC, but roof is not usable in this case.
