The Global demand for Adequate housing around the world is at an all time high, with more than a billion people living in inadequate housing. To meet the projected growth of households, developing countries need to build 21 million houses a year for 10 years that equates to one house every second and a half, twenty-four hours per day, which is an impossible task.
Most housing in developing countries are temporary structures that lack protection against wind and flood damage as well as electricity, running water and proper sanitation. It is evident that there is a need and a demand for a sufficient, affordable housing solution to the inadequate housing crisis. PYMM has the solution.
PMM was born in 2000 as the result of identifying the needs of the most vulnerable sectors in Mexican society. Their need for low income high quality-housing. Having this in mind, a Precast-Modular system was invented, resembling a car and truck manufacturing line of production, using cellular concrete, which provides with significant advantages: density, structural capacity and light weight. Your final product is a complete house, including electrical wiring, plumbing, windows, doors, etc. You don’t have to build anything on site. They leave the plant completely finished.
PMM’s Vision is the development of Innovated Models, and Housing Building Projects, by changing the traditional on-site Construction Industry through research & development, to better quality systems, speed manufacturing and low costs for the low income market.
Housing Current Construction Model Traditional on-site Construction (current system)
Ensure better cost structure through advanced manufacturing focus.
Advanced quality planning
Supply chain optimization
This leads to superior cost structure than the traditional on-site construction industry.
Currently construction companies have the traditional on-site construction techniques that translate into bad process and inefficiencies (theft, bad quality product, design variations, inefficient planning)
Improved Business Model creates opportunity for sustainable competitive advantage
Economies of Scale Savings achieved in the cost of production because the cost of initial investment it’s defrayed across a greater number of producing units. The more we produce, the less it costs.
Fast and substantial savings *Process control - Manufacturing speed *Full control on a per unit cost *Manufacturing Speed. 24 hours vs. 9 days, results: high-throughput (all resources)
State of the Art Technology The highest degree of development of a Precast manufacturing system (including the Matrix-Steel Form and the concrete mix) to building houses in a controlled environment.
The latest technology This will place your company as the real low-cost housing developers with the highest precast technology.
Technology’s role A 36m2 house it’s built in 19 days average, that time is substantially reduced with our technology to 24 hours, we have revolutionized the low income housing market combining technology with science and using an assembly line systematization to produce a high quality house in record time. Using modular prefab’s technology, the walls and roofs are cast from cellular concrete That provides a 50% increase in insulation from heat and cold, as well as many other benefits.
Our patented cellular process adds strength and reduces weight at the same time. Most importantly, it changes the concrete thermal properties for insulating comfort.
The house remains cool during the day and warm at night due to the phase displacement of heat transmission. When compared to a traditionally built house there are very noticeable differences in the inside temperature (up to 13f- 5C) it requires no insulation.
The houses are energy efficient.
The houses are made of steel reinforced concrete and are termite proof and fire resistant.
Using traditional on-site building methods, the following structural problems and imperfections may occur:
Asymmetrical lines of construction
Irregular and uneven surfaces
Using our system results in the following:
Smooth concrete finishes
Symmetrical lines of construction
Flawless right (90 º) angles
Beaten Challenge With a growing housing deficit, developing a high quality product to solve the crisis is a challenge. Our technology has overcome this challenge by creating a resourceful way to construct high quality, efficient, affordable, and safe housing using an effective production process. The use of a proprietary cellular process puts our technology heads above the rest and with multiple construction and product benefits, progress is being made to reduce the housing shortage.
Patent Abstract Concrete construction material and method of use. A method for constructing concrete building units comprises forming and pouring a concrete floor on a floor platform, providing interior wall forms on said concrete floor, providing door frames, conduit and piping on said interior wall forms, providing a ceiling form; transporting said floor platform and floor intermediate spaced exterior wall forms, and pouring a concrete mixture in the wall opening intermediate the interior wall forms and the exterior wall forms. A free-flowing concrete mixture for use in relation to the method comprises a combination of cement, sand, water, polystyrene beads, wire fibers and a conditioning concrete additive.
