Our buildings take a systems approach.... much like your body bones & muscles ......... ICF & eco-concrete lungs..........................MHVR skin ..... solar PV collectors & reclaimed/renewable materials ....ICF buildings must be integrated ....partnerships with ancillary systems are needed and valued
We seek to provide buildings that are... marketable adaptable affordable sustainable unique ...through...
exemplar site considerations & design cutting edge engineering unique natural element designing superior energy efficiency principles well selected renewable technologies handcrafted & recycled local materials planned & monitored water & waste control Designer Covers Mountain House with Recycled Tin Cans in Patagonia
heat can be kept in or out - dependent on global region think - airtight envelope
...otherwise known as ..... Building-Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) • Financial appeal – costs are combined for a building material and power generation • Distributed power generation – greater independence and less reliance on centralised fossil fuel power sources • Economies of scale – leverages a large inventory of constructed surface area for renewable power production • Improved real estate values – capitalise on short- and long-term property investment • Easy integration to standard construction practice – can be retrofitted to existing construction or installed new • No independent support structures – minimise system cost - fit on ICF systems easily • Hassle-free operation – low to no maintenance, with no moving parts • Improved aesthetics
We offer our partners ...unique joint venture opportunities that start with ICF systems training & products... ...and add well designed regionally suitable renewable energies... Carnegie Mellon University -www.sdeurope.org - concept house
a long term partnership for traditional and modern developments We offer our partners
