Canadian Rockport Homes owns patents for this
technology and to our knowledge, is the only
company in the world using it.
Key features of the Uni-Crete™ Cell Process:
- Modules are extracted from steel mould in one piece
- Walls are less than 2 inches thick for light weight and reduced cost- without sacrificing strength or structural integrity
- Concrete ceiling & floor joists cast in place for additional strength
- Openings for windows, doors, and electrical outlets are cast in place
- Interior surfaces are drywall smooth: ready for paint or tile application. No sub-floors required.
- Finishing processes are completed using assembly line techniques: painting, insulating, exterior stucco, installation of doors, windows, interior partition walls, plumbing and electrical lines, light fixtures, toilets, sinks, cupboards, stairs, etc.
- Each mould is capable of producing one module per day. Total cycle time to build a house is 7-9 days
- Result: with 300 days of production, a 48-mould plant can produce approximately 3,600 single family dwellings per year (68 m² homes requiring 4 modules each)
- Superior quality control and cost efficiency due to assembly line production techniques (similar to automobile manufacturing line)
- Controlled factory environment, materials and workers are protected from the elements
- Reduced interior finishing costs, concrete smooth enough for paint, tile or carpet application; sub floors not required
- Significant savings versus traditional concrete/masonry construction requires less concrete than other concrete structures
- Use of an assembly line makes the construction process purely mechanical and eliminates the need for skilled trades people and labour. More
