AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 11/27/12 -- With the unfortunate and catastrophic events of Hurricanes Sandy and Katrina, the earthquake in Haiti, tsunami in Japan and other natural disasters across the world, many families have been left without homes, electricity and clean water. GreenWorld Restoration believes that it is time to deeply reconsider how we as a world rebuild our homes and infrastructure.
According to Michael Torres, President and CEO of GreenWorld Restoration, "We have an opportunity to shift the paradigm. We have an opportunity to rebuild in ways that are in balance with the planet using materials designed to better withstand the elements. If we want to achieve different results then we must reconsider our actions, processes and approach. A house made of straw, a house made of sticks, a house made of bricks or a house made of more sustainable materials better designed to withstand the elements."
GreenWorld Restoration's Sustainable Housing Platform utilizes a traditional U.S. stick frame structure with recycled metal instead of wood, supported by exterior and interior structural walls incorporating special materials in order to make the homes more resistant to hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, fire, heat, mold and termites. As a result, the homes are safer and more energy efficient, saving up to 40% on utility bills.
In addition, GreenWorld will soon be releasing another version of its Sustainable Housing Platform, incorporating lightweight concrete into structural walls using less than 10% of the energy typically used to make concrete. This product enhancement has been designed to further enhance a home's ability to resist the elements.
