Custom-designed kits, essentially consisting of sturdy steel logs, offer builders the easiest and fastest of ways to high quality, hurricane/earthquake-resistant construction anywhere, including in markets heretofore beyond reach.
Right after being made using compact mobile equipment, flawless kits are ready for assembly by mostly unskilled locally hired players into up to three-story building superstructures and border walls.
Mobile plants deliver building kits at the rate of two units per hour. Each kit is good for assembly into 25m2 (270sqf ) of fully enclosed building floor areas, which assemblies can be completed within one hour from start by a team of five to seven locally hired helpers.
Kit assemblies do not require any welding, crane, bolts, screws and/or nails, just like a Lego, rendering them (especially in do-it-yourself and remote construction) extraordinarily easy to deal with.
The system’s mobile kit fabrication plants or MKF-plants do not have to rely on any service infrastructures and are easily transportable on the road, as well as by train, boat, or even aircraft to wherever required.
The system relies for the production of its key components and for the operation of MKF-plants on numerous regional steel service centers, with actual fabrication of the kits taking place out in the field.
The combined thermal insulation of the air chambers contained in the logs and the optional cladding of walls and roofs provides for remarkably comfortable interior spaces even under cold or warm weather.
Kit assemblies do not generate waste and, again same as a Lego, may not even require preexisting foundations. Structures are of no interest to termites; they are noncombustible; while high quality galvanized steel prevents corrosion.
Kits, including optional cladding and prefab items, are assembled into enclosed spaces that allow for further construction work to be pursued without interruptions inside secure shells, irrespectively of the exterior weather conditions.
The system’s building structures are open, in that, beyond their limitless shapes, they can be combined with a wide variety of construction methods, including, but not limited to, conventional steel frames.
Once the steel logs are hidden from view by optional wall cladding (cement, adobe, or any kind of panels and finishes), wall and building superstructures may look as made with conventional or even traditional construction methods.
