  12. 12. Residential Circle House The main idea is to follow the principle about “center and front”. Room and terrace elements are placed around the central base and can be arranged according to the customer’s needs and wishes. The AquaDomi™ circle system allows for individual solutions (for singles and families) and 11 functions (permanent habitation, office or summer house). The central base can be reduced or extended according to the need and the situation. The round central base with a surface of 28 m2 has kitchen, bathroom with separate toilet and technical room. A large sliding door supports the flexible and open use of the circle house, which is also the reason for using glass fronts that can be opened almost entirely except by the supporting pillars. The external screens with adjustable lamellas protect the house from sunlight and prevent that people can look into the rooms from the outside.

  16. 16. Information Basic Technical information AquaDomi™ Pontoon bridges for Floating houses as common gangway in floating house communities. It adapts to the tide and everybody has the same access to the house. AquaDomi™ Mooring Seaflex System AquaDomi™ recommends the use of the professional mooring system Seaflex. The Seaflex system uses an elastic progressive mooring, which is developed to cope with the tide. Seaflex causes the water level to Technical Information change slowly, but the progressive mooring can also cope with sudden waves from passing boats. AquaDomi™ Floating Part – Concrete Pontoon All AquaDomi™ floating houses are built on plastic-fiber concrete pontoons with hot-galvanized steel reinforcement that assure stability and a long life-time. Maintenance with poisonous paint and exchange of zinc anodes are not required. A floating house with a concrete pontoon does not have the problem of corrosion and the weight distribution gives optimum stability in the water. AquaDomi™ Construction AHPS Profile System AHPS is a new modular cassette building system that makes it possible to transport modular unmounted units in container and mount and connect on site directly onto the pontoon. AHPS is most flexible, with large carrying capacity, very lightweight, 35 % less then prefabricated concrete), great strength, fire proofed, ecologically friendly, impact proof outside, 100 % recyclable. Exterior materials - AquaDomi™ Facades Customized by combining profiles, planes, fibers or stone facades. 256 RAL colors available, maintenance free, fire proofed and salt water resistant AquaDomi™ Plane Facade: Plane The AquaDomi™ plane facade plate is a durable with a low- maintenance facade panel made of compressed rock fiber and Bakelite.

  17. 17. Information AquaDomi™ TechnicaI Information AquaDomi™ Facade profile Profiles Durable and maintenance-free made of wood fibers and extruded into profiles. AquaDomi™ stone facades: Stone The AquaDomi™ stone facade profiles are covered by high quality natural granules. Technical Information AquaDomi™ Insulation of the floating house The insulation of the house is very important when you live on water. The AquaDomi™ houseboat has the following U-values: Ceiling: 0.15; Floor: 0.12; Wall: 0.18 Noise reduction and Sound-proofing: The choice of the soundproofing material is also very important. The noise can come from the wind, the sea, the marine traffic. AquaDomi™ has the following noise reduction (dB): Windows: 36-39 dB ; Ceilings and floors: > 75 dB; Walls: > 52 dB Ventilation of the floating house: Ventilation and handling of humidity within the building are very important. The relative humidity is high during the summer and low during the winter. These conditions are more difficult for buildings on water. AquaDomi™ uses an “intelligent” vapor barrier that reacts to the air’s relative humidity. AquaDomi™ Windows for floating homes : Velfac AquaDomi™ uses Velfac 200 windows with high insulation capacity, noise reduction factor and an important sound-proofing quality. VELFAC 200 window systems are made of strong, weatherproof aluminium on the outside and north European Pinewoood on the inside. We use VELFAC DÉCOR opaque glass - where privacy and security are required. Infrastructure : AquaDomi™ Waterhomes Water, waste water, electricity, telephone and cable connections are 16 connected to the houseboat through the floating bridge. At the houseboat, the hook-up is placed under the gangway and thus hidden. Copyright by AquaDomi™
  18. 18. Information AquaDomi™ TechnicaI Information Water Supply The water supply goes through special 50mm flexible tubes that are insulated with El-tracing to prevent the water from freezing. Connection to the public waterworks is made with pressure water. The water gauge can be placed in a technical room or in the floating house. The hot-water tank is normally placed in the floating house. Electricity Technical Information Energy and energy- production: The houseboats are normally connected to the public supplying net. Telephone and Cable Connections If it is not possible to connect to the local net, is it possible to create a wireless system. Heating and Cooling of the AquaDomi™ Houseboat AquaDomi™ uses heating placed in floors, wall or air warming systems. Any form of heating is possible: gas- and oil burner, heat pumps, district heating, solar panels, wood burning fire places, ACs. Waste Water There are several solutions to the sewage discharge from the houseboat. 1) A grinder/pump system can be mounted that “shoots” the waste water to the public sewerage system ashore. 2) A sewer contractor can empty the houseboat’s septic tank with a gully emptier on a regular basis. Mud pumping on the bridge is not advisable due to environmental factors. 3) A third solution could be to install a mini-sewage works on each floating house that treats the discharge water. The cleaned water can then be led directly into the water. The residual product – the sludge – is collected in a tank and emptied regularly. Garbage Handling In connection with AquaDomi™ Projects an environment station is placed on land, to where the sorted garbage must be transported. The garbage will be collected and transported to treatment. 17 Copyright by AquaDomi™
  19. 19. Information AquaDomi™ Environment Correct Materials AquaDomi has tested all the materials which are used in the constructions, before they are taken in to use. New materials will also be tested, so we know, with sureness that nothing is going to harm the environment. Recyclable Materials AquaDomi™ has made sure that all materials which are used are 100% recyclable. The house by itself is therefore very environmentally correct. Partners AquaDomi™ Inspection and Maintenance Service inspection and maintenance of houseboats is performed by the AquaDomi™ service team. AquaDomi™ has the facilities to solve this assignment through a service agreement adapted to the specific demand. The result is noted in a logbook. AquaDomi Partners 18 Copyright by AquaDomi™
