A Green Alternative

GreenCreteDomes are constructed using a unique concrete mix that locks CO2 from our specially developed crop fiber aggregate permanently into stone and allows the concrete to be lighter weight and stronger than regular concrete.

Regular concrete uses rock and gravel as an aggregate... needs to be hauled in by the truck load, changes the structure of the earth...

Crop fiber aggregate is renewable every year, contributes oxygen to the air while it grows, and creates industries unto itself with farming, processing and distribution.

Spraying greencrete as an exterior to a building will make it virtually impervious to hurricane, earthquake, fire , water, mould and termites allowing it to stand for many generations. Dome shaped buildings are the safest and most efficient architectural design. The Romans, two thousand years ago, built domes and arches from concrete that still stand today. Fire insurance rates are lower on concrete structures because they simply do not burn down.

Time is money when it comes to building and construction. The process of preparing the foundation or foothold, installing and inflating an airform, shooting it with concrete, installing windows, doors, lightpipes, solar panels, wind turbine and water trap composting toilets can all be done within days.

Greencrete has a very fast set and cure time which dramatically cuts construction time and the cost of labour. A structure can be started, finished and occupied within a very short time.

Greencretedomes are safer, healthier, and more affordable than conventional wood constructed homes.

GreenCreteDomes are versatile and can be designed to serve as laneway secondary housing, vacation cottages, or emergency shelters in disaster relief zones.

Other obvious applications for green concrete are bridges, sidewalks, roads, roofs, high rises, gunite walls etc.
