Green Magic Homes, based in Miami, Fl, announces the official launch of their sustainable building technology Worldwide, and the introduction of their dynamic new construction technology into the USA that will change how we think about green living and earth sheltered homes.
Built with fiber re-enforced polymer modules, Green Magic Homes are light weight, waterproof, mold resistant, impervious to rot and infestations, and offer infinite design possibilities. Flexible and durable, the structure will last for hundreds of years with minimal maintenance.
Description by Green Magic Homes
The Green Magic Homes are composed of prefabricated vaulted panels manufactured with composite laminate materials, confined laterally by walls in reinforced soil, with a high index of stabilization and protection from climate meteorological harmful effects change and UV radiation. The technology is designed to adapt to any type of topography, either flat, with moderate land slopes or steep slopes.
Green Magic Homes components are easy and fast Assembly. Each component has perforated flaps to screw and seal each other, anchoring them to the Foundation, which allows fast installation. The earth berms on the sides of the structures and on the roof are structured in such a way that they actually collaborate with the stability and strength of the finished structure, Instead of being a dead load. The new sustainable building technology used in these earthworks is an evolution of various methods of earth construction and stabilization such as superadobe and geotextiles, designed for the living earth and vegetation covering of the Green Magic Homes system. Composite ducts and channels for electrical wiring and water pipes as well as mechanical ventilation ducts, can be added to the shell at any point necessary.
The oldest building methods use the earth as a building material. Adobe, cob, rammed earth, and earth-sheltered construction, are being used as an alternative to more mainstream types of building. In particular the idea of covering a structure with living earth and plants, and using the thermal stability and security provided by the proximity to the ground, is very appealing. However, this type of construction has always been difficult and expensive to achieve, with questionable results. Achieving adequate ventilation and adequate water-proofing in this type of construction has never been easy with traditional methods, and often the result is overbuilt, requiring an extremely strong structure that does not collaborate with the earth surrounding it.
The Green Magic Homes system has addressed these problems in an entirely new way, using the age-old methods of building with earth in conjunction with the space-age technology of composite materials. The inner shell of the buildings is very strong, light, waterproof, and modular, and the earth covering is constructed in such a way that it collaborates structurally with the shell because of its layered construction and the vaulted geometry of the system.
