The structures we build today for housing, offices, factories, and other buildings, are typically made of wood (framing, walls, roofs, floors, etc.),
metal (framing, support beams, etc.), concrete, bricks, concrete blocks, sheetrock, plastic (e.g. siding), fiberglass (insulation), and roofing tiles.
There are many disadvantages to building using these materials:
Buildings can take months and sometimes years to complete.
Homes are typically built with crews of workers starting with a foundation, building a timber frame,
covering the frame with wood, installing insulation, installing windows and doors, wiring, plumbing, HVAC installation, roofing, and siding.
There are a lot of stages and each stage requires a crew with a different set of skills.
Due to the large number of different materials and the large amount of labor required from
different workers with different skills, and the time required to complete each stage,
building costs for structures can be very high.
Traditional buildings are notorious for being poor quality.
Timber frames can lead to warping walls, poor workmanship can lead to walls and rooms which aren't square,
poor mudding application leaving uneven walls and peaks and troughs over screw holes in sheetrock,
leaks in roofs, and other quality issues.
Materials such as wood, plastic, bricks, fiberglass insulation, and roofing tiles all have a negative impact on the environment.
Molded Building Structures are built in Nutopia using a mixture poured in to reusable plastic molds which are assembled
to produce walls, floors/ceilings, and roofs.
Roofs are flat with built-in drainage systems so that rainwater and snow pass to the ground through pipes in the walls.
Flat roofs which are strong allow for rooftop gardens with grass, plants, shrubs, fruits and vegetables, trees, water features, decks, and patios,
to improve the positive environmental impact even further for these types of buildings.
Molded Building Structure construction has the following features:
Made from thick, clear plastic, the panels fit together to form molds for walls, floors, and roofs.
A simple locking system means that a whole floor (including all walls, floor, and ceiling)
can be assembled in a few hours.
Panels come in a variety of standard sizes for different wall heights,
and for different textured finishes, and different styles of walls and roofs.
This variety of different styles, textures, and colors will mean that housing developments will be aesthetically pleasing.
Some panels have holes for windows and doors and HVAC vents,
and the panel molds are designed so that channels are created running through the walls, ceilings, and floors, to facilitate all plumbing,
wiring, and HVAC ducts.
Steel mesh grids come in standard sizes to be placed
in the assembled panel mold sections to give extra stength to walls, floors, ceilings, and roofs.
The steel meshes have male and female edges on all four sides so that
the steel mesh in each adjacent panel piece can be tied to this piece
by simply inserting the male piece over the female piece.
Each panel section has a steel mesh installed.
Made entirely from sand, water, a binding agent, and coloring, the components are mixed together
on site using a mixer. The mixture is easily piped
in to the completed panel mold.
The mixing machine grinds the sand down to powder and then combines it with water, the binding agent, and coloring
to produce a liquid which can be poured which then sets into a smooth, solid, and strong form.
Molded building Structures has the following advantages over traditional building construction:
All walls, floors, ceilings, and roofs are made with the poured mixture.
The poured mixture is completely fireproof which means that it is much safer
than buildings with timber frames, wooden panels, fiberglass insulation, sheetrock, and roof tiles.
Molded buildings would be much stronger and resilient than timber framed buildings and
can easily survive hurricanes, tornados, earthquakes, forest fires, and protected from flooding.
Due to the inexpensive materials used, the simple construction methods, the minimal amount of skilled labor required,
and the minimal time required to complete construction,
the molded buildings will be significantly less expensive than traditional building equivalents.
Due to the fact that the buildings are constructed using precision molded panels,
all walls are square, and there are no imperfections (panels are washed with high pressure water after they have been used).
All windows, doors, electrical, plumbing, HVAC work is done with precision because
the panel molds make sure that everything is exactly where it is supposed to be,
and it is not left to the skill (or lack of) and judgment of the workers.
Sand and water are abundant and readily available in most areas of the world.
The reusable panels can be shipped to an area and used and reused to build a whole development of housing.
Local unskilled labor can be quickly shown how to assemble panels and mix and pour the mixture.
A two story house could be feasibly completed in one week with two people.
This type of structure would prevent damage from pests such as termites, ants, rodents, and squirrels
which can damage the structure of the building and be a nuisance to homeowners.
Wooden framed building structures are susceptible to damage from wildlife and damage from the elements like
water, ice, snow, and extreme hot and cold temperatures.
