SBS builders can build virtually any commercial structure up to 40' using the patented EPS foam system. It is a multi-patented, composite building system that utilizes Expanded Polystyrene Foam (EPS) as the core material for all structural members; walls, roof, and floor. These pieces are assembled with adhesive, without any additional structure such as wood or steel. The foam is covered with a composite coating made up of a precise blend of sand, cement, glass fiber and other additives that, together, create a building shell. Not only are the structures reliable, but they meet or exceed all testing protocols and load requirements of the ICC-ES.
Sustainable Building Solutions (SBS) is certified with the patented EPS Foam Building System. We have the expertise in the construction and key quality control methods to make your project a success. When you need to partner with a EPS foam certified partner for your next commercial project, choose SBS.
Like most builders/developers, you are probably used to using traditional stick-built methods. What if your next build project contained no wood? No nails? Less labor intensive? Faster completion-time? You can achieve all of this when you partner with SBS for your next project.
We help you with any of the following project types*:
*Maximum build height 40' (Three stories)
We use a multi-patented, composite building system that utilizes Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) as the core material for all structural members – walls, roof, floor – that is sprayed with a composite coating made up of a precise blend of sand, cement, glass fiber and other additives that, together, create a building shell that meets or exceeds all testing protocols and load requirements of the ICC-ES.
Intrinsically linked to the installation and application of the building method is a patented analysis program that accurately predicts the performance capability of a building shell utilizing any architectural design under any set of climatic conditions.
Remarkably simple, the foam-based building system has only two parts. An EPS core that can range in thickness from 4 to 16 inches, depending on design and insulation needs, and a 1/4-1/2 inch thick coating of reinforced concrete. Together these make a composite building system that is suitable for all portions of a building.
This building system offers great benefits to everyone, including architects, builders, and home owners.
EPS makes up the largest component to our building system, however EPS is 98.5% air, which makes it lightweight and a great insulator. EPS is also simple to shape and cut making custom features easy to incorporate.
The reinforced concrete coating is rolled/sprayed on to the EPS at1/4-1/2” thickness using standard equipment, and then finished with industry standard tools like trowels. Most 3rd party materials can be directly applied to the finished foam structure.
