We provide an environmentally responsible way to build efficiently using recycled content to create a structure that is stronger, lasts longer, and is healthier than traditional homes. Our systems promote sustainability in three ways:
Homeowner Health and Safety
Our systems are impervious to rot and termites and are not conducive to mold growth. Our systems give off no VOCs, promoting healthy indoor air quality. Additionally our systems are very strong, and are often deployed in areas with high seismic activity, and in areas with frequent storms and high wind loads.
Environmentally Friendly Materials
Our systems are made with an average of 70% recycled content, and are themselves 100% recyclable. Additionally, since our systems are precision manufactured in a controlled environment, their use creates almost no on-site waste. With traditional construction, between 20% and 40% of new building materials end up in a dumpster.
Our moment frame has many of the same advantages as structural steel moment frames, but can weigh up to 50% less, a considerable savings.
Our panelized wall and roof systems, made from light-gauge steel studs are completely recyclable and produces almost no on-site waste.
Environmentally Friendly Construction
Our system’s ability to have only a few touch-points with the ground can result in dramatically reduced earthwork, and significantly smaller foundations. This advantage can become especially significant on hillside lots, where cut-and-fill and retaining walls can typically eat up a large portion of a construction budget. Additionally, due to our low impact on the land, our structures typically don’t disturb the natural drainage of a site, leading to more stable soils and reduced risk of erosion.
