FAST & AFFORDABLE HOUSING
Grid Crete is a brand new, extremely lightweight, fast and durable, affordable modular concrete panel system for housing. The Grid Crete panels reduced size and weight facilitates quality construction in remote areas of developing countries. These eco-friendly Grid Crete panels are significantly smaller and lighter than typical Waffle Crete panels, allowing much simpler and less expensive lifting equipment to be used for demolding and erecting.
GRID CRETE PROJECTS
Grid Crete has just recently been demonstrated and proven for sample housing in Tanzania, Mexico and Sri Lanka. Homes ranging from $10,000.00 in Sri Lanka at 500 sq ft. to $20,000.00 in Tanzania at 800 sq ft. All 3 of these demonstration projects have been built on-site using all local material and newly trained workers. After 2 weeks of on-site training the local workers are knowledgeable and efficient. Concrete and or masonry are the only materials acceptable for housing in developing countries.
The problem with conventional methods of constructing housing is the very slow pace. The only way to catch up with extreme shortage of housing is to use a systems approach. We have that system and its speed and efficiency has been proven over the decades. The panel casting can be done while site work and foundations/floors are being prepared; so much time is saved with these overlapping simultaneous schedules.
GRID CRETE BENEFITS
PATENT APPROVED CONCRETE CONSTRUCTION SYSTEM
SAFE AND SECURE
"Waffle" design lightens the weight of a regular solid concrete wall
Pre-cast on site and molds can be reused daily, eliminating shipping costs
Structures are fireproof, seismic and hurricane/typhoon resistant
Because of their lightweight, they can easily be transported and moved on site
SAFE & DURABLE
Our lightweight and portable molds allow for remote job site panel casting and overnight curing. The modular Grid Crete precast concrete system is fast and affordable. Structures are fireproof, seismic and hurricane/ typhoon resistant. All of the materials are local and provide error-proof templates for setup by entry level local workers. Grid Crete structures are designed to withstand 200mph hurricanes/typhoons and Zone 4 seismic such as California magnitude earthquakes. Fire resistive concrete structures add considerable safety and security.
Grid Crete uses a unique method of overnight curing so each mold is available to be used daily. Panels are pre cast on location and reinforcing steel is cut and fabricated on site from bulk steel delivered to the site. This unique panel casting system eliminates shipping costs. This also allows for careful attention to engineering, architectural design and details, assuring quality, aesthetically pleasing buildings.
Our building systems technology allows people to build strong concrete buildings on time and on budget. The entire home structure can be up in 48 hours using unskilled, briefly trained local labor and ready for painting, interior finishing, doors, windows, plumbing, and electrical installations. Shortened construction times save interim financing and allows earlier occupancy. We achieve this by making continuous improvements to our building systems and by consistently providing quality engineering, technology and services to our customers.
