Building Systems FAQ

What building systems do you use?

As we build around the world – from Russia to Australia, from the US to Africa – we have firsthand experience with all building systems, and we know all their pro’s and con’s.

Reinforced Concrete Structure? CMU? Wood framing, steel framing, light steel framing? Been there, done that.

But we’re also at the forefront of new construction technology. Many builders are slow to adapt, but we know how to make buildings more efficient to build ├índ to maintain.

So we’ll probably also tell you about Insulated Concrete Forms, Cross Laminated Timber, SIP’s/MgO Panels…

Because that insulated floor slab, that keeps houses warm in Canada and Scandinavia, may also be a great solution for Moscow or Queenstown.

The SIP’s panels from Australia may be the perfect solution to build in the Caribbean.

Are developer qualities better?

Developers are focused on selling and cost reduction, so there’s always a temptation to focus on the superficial presentation but to skimp on the invisible qualities.

But investment properties need strong “bones”.

While good design attracts tenants, good quality keeps them. And lower tenant turnover means higher occupations and less costs.

Good sound and thermal insulation, sufficient heating/cooling capacity keeps tenants comfortable and energy bills low. (So they can spend a little more on the rent.

Strong “bones” also means: less maintenance costs for you over the long run, and more appreciation for your property.
