Natural disasters are a dramatic example of people living in conflict with
the environment. Acts of nature are not inherently catastrophic.
Hurricanes, tornadoes, fires, floods and the like are simply natural
occurrences. They only become disasters when they conflict with people
The Federal Emergency Management Agency estimates that as much as 75
percent of the nation is susceptible to natural hazards.
Sustainable development offers a way out. Sustainable development means
restricting new construction in particularly vulnerable areas to building
smarter, stronger homes that are more hazard-resistant.
In this Tripod web site we will extensively review this high technology construction
system in which wood is replaced as structural building material.
Using instead high resistance extruded aluminum-alloy components and
traditional filling materials replaced by high resistance fiber-reinforced
cellular concrete foam. With the utilization of this method we will make technology
help us to provide our families and future generations with greener, safer
and durable habitats capable of enduring nature´s phenomena for unlimited time.
