BONE Structure® Steel Building System May be the Wave of the Future in the AEC Industry
The BONE Structure® steel construction technology combines the advantages of a post-and-beam structure with an integrated energy efficient solution for the thermal envelope. BONE Structure Homes are Net Zero Energy Ready and can easily reach LEED or PassivHaus Certifications. They provide architects with exceptional tools and building solutions to design striking and timeless buildings.
The patented BONE Structure® steel structure will withstand bending, buckling or rotting over time, and is resistant to damage from termites and mold. Additionally a fire resistant home is coming to California. The home will have a metal roof and it won’t have an attic or soffit vents. Napa-based architect Brendan Kelly says it will be “impregnable” using pre-fabricated steel framing wrapped in noncombustible insulation from BONE Structure.
Our integrated combination of rigid and foam insulation reduces energy loads, and provides superior comfort and energy savings of up to 90% compared to traditional construction.
FLOOR-TO-CEILING WINDOWS AND NO LOAD BEARING WALLS
BONE Structure’s recommended high performance doors and windows complete the thermal envelope and provide breathtaking views without sacrificing performance. 22 ft ceilings, 25 ft spans, 20 ft doors and window openings, no interior-load bearing walls, all possibilities. Imagine large spaces to let your creativity flow and connect with the outdoors. The strength and precision of the patented steel structure system allows for crisp finishes and a sharp look.
Not only is steel recyclable, unlike wood or concrete, but the BONE Structure steel construction technology is so precise that there is nothing left over once the job is complete. Few people realize that 50% of waste in landfills comes from construction sites. This is because, on average, the construction of a small house using traditional methods fills a minimum of three waste containers of 40 cubic meters! And you end up paying not only for wasted materials, but also for their removal, the rental of containers, and labor.
BONE Structure® partnered with renowned local architect Anders Lasater Architects of Laguna Beach and builder J. Kramer Corp. to create and build this amazing ocean view custom residence.
