International Housing Solutions
We believe that by providing decent, strong, energy-efficient homes, our structures will be able to effect meaningful change and comfort to all who enter.
Whether it is for disaster relief or housing for those citizens who cannot find or afford adequate homes to live in due to market conditions, we have the solution.
Our international division is a US based company and an acknowledged world leader with experience in building energy efficient, cost effective housing quickly, affordably and with advanced “green” technology in those areas of the world where infrastructure is lacking or modest at best. The completed homes, schools and business facilities are as strong as “traditionally” built homes, affording protection from category 5 hurricane winds as well as seismic resistance while offering the new home owners superior energy efficiency.
LENGTH OF CONSTRUCTION TIME
With our proprietary method of construction our regionally designed larger custom homes can be assembled and finished within 30 days or less with a crew of up to 5 full time workers. For those units comparable to the size of our demo video unit, approximately 22 square meters, the homes can be assembled in 2 ½ hours. They can be shipped in containers and need no special tools. Everything is pre-cut and pre-engineered in the US with virtually no waste, utilizing high tech construction methods and the most environmentally friendly building components. We are capable of producing very high quotas of homes for those countries in need of immediate housing.
OUR PROPRIETARY SPECIFICATIONS:
The structural system, utilizing panelized SIPS walls, is made of columns and beams based on US standard codes until such time that local codes can be ascertained.
Walls consist of thick polystyrene insulation sandwiched between two sheets of James Hardie cement board for the exterior. These walls can either be painted or sprayed with stucco and pre-tinted to the selection of colors specified.
Ceiling panels consist of polystyrene insulation again sandwiched between cement board on the interior side with aluminum roofing, protecting the home with zero maintenance.
Building communities if utilities are lacking:
We have had extensive experience delivering to and completing projects in many countries as well as offering green technologies to compensate for unavailable development infrastructure. For those regions that lack any or only partial subdivision infrastructure we are able to provide an answer to satisfy the immediate demand for suitable housing. By building sustainable energy efficient homes we are able to provide housing in several months as opposed to waiting years for the subdivision infrastructure to be completed. By utilizing solar electric and wind, water desalination plants, and other proven methods, we are able to complete a subdivision quickly once all roads have been engineered. Because we are building sustainable environments, the cost a country would spend on infrastructure- i.e. water, sewer and electric transmission lines- is locked permanently into today’s pricing and captured with the alternative use of our solar electric technology thus becoming a fixed cost within the completed cost of the homes. And not only does that become a fixed cost, but it also holds the promise of contributing to the utility generation of electricity. Should the government want to add transmission lines later in the future, every single home becomes capable of “selling” back electricity to the utility grid thus reducing the governments need to increase power costs. What we propose is offering the ability of a new home with virtually no utility costs and free, clean water; a home that can withstand high wind and seismic activity, where the economics of efficiency and sustainability greatly outweigh the expense of traditional development costs for years to come.
