am-cor For Architects & Engineers
Why Specify The am-cor System?
The am-cor Unified Steel and Cement™construction system is a disaster-resistant, durable and sustainable, minimal-maintenance building system. Buildings constructed using the patented am-cor Ferrocement System cost less to build, less to maintain, and less to heat and cool.
As an architect or engineer, specifying the am-cor System will save your clients money, construction time, and provide a longer-lasting, better performing building.
Why Specify am-cor?
|Fortified, Quality Construction|
The am-cor System is complete structural system: with walls imbedded in concrete foundations, and floors, roofs, stairs, balconies and railings all joined together as galvanized a steel frame, coated with a highly reinforced amcorite Ferrocement structural cement stress skin - forming an extremely strong, disaster resistant, monocoque composite structure.
|Price Competitive||The am-cor System is panelized and pre-engineered; it obviates the need for a number of expensive and redundant building practices. The cost of am-cor buildings is comparable with that of standard stick built, and 20-40% less than standard reinforced concrete block.|
|Code Compliance||am-cor building shells are code-compliant, and meet ICC, ASTM, and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers requirements for hurricane, tornado, flood, fire, and earthquake resistance; they are pre-engineered for extreme strength, and panelized for low cost and speedy on-site assembly.|
|Design Support||am-cor inc. provides full customer support to architects and designers:
|Full Site Support||In addition to system panelization and pre-engineering, am-cor inc. provides full site support:
|Standard Trades||Standard trades, materials and methods are used to complete am-cor structural shells; services & insulation are easily & quickly placed in am-cor shells.|
|Tried & Proven||am-cor hotels, houses, villas, and casinos have weathered hurricanes, floods, tornadoes, and seismic events with no structural damage.|
|A Green System||am-cor Kits are fabricated using 100% renewable energy and 100% recyclable material; furthermore, incorporation of renewable energy generation technologies (solar, photovoltaics, geothermal, etc.) into a project results in a negative carbon footprint over the building’s lifetime.|
