AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - Oct 22, 2012) - Over the last seven years, GreenWorld Restoration™ has been designing and testing low-cost housing materials, construction processes and systems in environments with little to no water, wastewater and energy resources. Earlier versions of the housing platform were geared more toward international markets. As a result, GreenWorld housing solutions have been designed to be more environmentally friendly operating "on- or off-the-grid."
Version 10.0 of the GreenWorld 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% off of utility bills.
Additionally, Version 10.0 of the GreenWorld Sustainable Housing Platform offers both permanent and temporary-to-permanent housing solutions. Permanent homes are constructed at the job site on top of a concrete or pier and beam foundation. As seen in the October issue of Tribeza magazine, temporary homes are constructed on-site or in the factory and are later capable of being converted into a permanent home meeting local building code requirements (http://www.tribeza.com/magazine_content/greener-side).
According to Michael Torres, President and CEO of GreenWorld Restoration, "At GreenWorld, it is our belief that You Don't Have to Lose Your Green to Go Green™. Sustainable communities start with affordable sustainable homes. The times we live in call for all of us to think out of the box and take action. Version 10.0 of our Sustainable Housing Platform does just that."
