On 1 February 2016, our innovative ASET Concretes were awarded the “Seal of Excellence” in a highly competitive evaluation process by the European Commission. To download our AEDES Seal of Excellence please click here.
When compared to our competitors who build buildings with dense ready mix concrete, i.e. RMX-concrete, and lightweight concretes, Phoenix-prefabricated-buildings are superior and cheaper for multiple reasons. Firstly, Phoenix-prefabricated-buildings are cheaper due to 3 times thinner and 5 times lighter facade walls, 2 times lighter roofs, 2 times lighter load-bearing structure and 2÷3 times smaller foundations and construction time is 2÷3 times shorter. Secondly, Phoenix-prefabricated-buildings require only 15÷50 Kwh/m2/year for heating/cooling. Thirdly, Phoenix-prefabricated-buildings can be dismantled, transported and reassembled on new locations minimum 20 times (the second life of buildings like used cars). Thereby, Phoenix-prefabricated-buildings are not turned into waste, there is no pollution with additional landfills and no need for production of new construction materials for new buildings. When the Phoenix-prefabricated-buildings life-span is finally over after 300 years, their construction elements can be completely recycled and reused in production of new Phoenix-prefabricated-buildings. Thereby, we provide a significant contribution to building and sustainable development. Fourthly, staying in line with sustainable construction, Phoenix-prefabricated-buildings are built with ASET-thermal concretes containing recycled industrial waste (we save about 70% of natural granulate and 15% of cement). ASET-thermal concretes have small mass and thermal conductivity and act as positive thermal mass, significantly increasing energy efficiency of Phoenix-prefabricated-buildings. Fifthly, Phoenix-prefabricated-buildings are resistant against destructive effects of earthquakes (magnitude 9th Richter) and storms blowing over 300km/h. Thanks to all mentioned unique and superior characteristics, Phoenix-prefabricated-buildings are significantly cheaper (500€/m2) than our competitors’ prefabricated and masonry buildings.
We define prefabricated buildings as buildings constructed on site, the foundations, columns, beams and ceilings of which are made of RMX-concrete and the walls of which are made of clay prefabricated units.
