  • All components are non-combustible steel and concrete.
  • EPS foam is totally encapsulated within the concrete or gypsum board assembly.
  • Bearing walls can also serve as full length shear walls.
  • The concrete veneer application using traditional shotcrete equipment and methods will encase and bond all the framing components together.
  • Fire ratings of walls and roof will exceed 2-hour ratings.
  • All the framing components are recycled building materials.
  • Meets all the structural and acoustical building codes.
  • Energy efficient: The design meets all the current California energy codes.
  • The BTI exterior coasting provides the reflectivity of the sun's heat rays and therefore reduces heat gain. The coating also serves as the sealant for water intrusion for both the roof and walls.
  • The roof design with the stamped concrete 2.5 +/- inch thick concrete eliminates the need to attach any roof tiles.
  • Speed of Construction.
  • No Termites
  • Coordination for mechanical, electrical, and plumbing trades.
  • Provides for straight walls, square corners, and allows for doors and windows to open and close properly.
  • Lower probability of foundation problems.
