Envirocrete® Building System

Envirocrete Building phase 1Envirocrete Building phase 1
Ground Floor - (built on conventional foundation)

The peripheral load bearing precast walls are brought to site and hosited into position with a crane and thus fixed on conventional concrete foundation slab.

Envirocrete Building phase 2Envirocrete Building phase 2
First story decks

Once all the vertical walls have been erected a pre-assembled composite flooring deck is lowered into place.

EnviroCrete Building Phase 3EnviroCrete Building Phase 3
First story walls- (fitted on top off ground floor pannels)

The erection process proceeds with installation of the first story walls panels

Roofing Compisite Slabs

The raw structure contruction job is concluded with the laying of the pre-assembled roof system

Simplicity – Speed – Quality

  1. All wall floor and roof panels are precasted and pre-assembled off-site
  2. No wet joining on-site , only special screws are used for fixing
  3. The system fully operable and interfacable with conventional building materials and construction techniques

Envirocrete® Blocks

Envirocrete® Raw (treated wood chips) when produced locally costs 40-50% less than the sand + grit aggregate (not needed at all)

Envirocrete® Blocks Std 8’ inch x 18 cost ~20-30% less of traditional hollowcore concrete blocks

At comparable building costs use of Envirocrete® Blocks provide
+ 40% energy saving (Thermal Insulation)
+ 30% Acoustic insulation improvement

Ligher  – Bigger  – Cheeper

Ventilated-Composite Roofing System

EnviroCrete® 14 cm shuttered slab

excellent thermal & acustic insualtion at very affordable cost

Achievements:

  • Developed for the first time in South Africa according to local requirements and at very low cost impact
  • Thermal Inversion of 14 hours assures that the heat NEVER transfers  inside the house
  • No need for extra cooling fan or HVAC-> Living in full comfort
  • Great acoustic insulation + 50% improvement.-> No hearing hail battering or external noises
