Fort Myers Model Home

Overview

This concrete home was gutted by fire.  The owner is rebuilding using the am-cor System to encase the surviving concrete block exterior walls, and to add an upper story master suite and library.  Garden walls, pool arcade, and a guest house are constructed of the am-cor System.

The am-cor ExoStructure which wraps around the existing block walls, shields the masonry from changes in exterior temperature turning the entire masonry structure into a heat sink.  This causes a fly wheel effect on interior temperature, evening out variations and lowering fuel consumption.

The am-cor Ferrocement frame coated with its amcorite structural Portland cement skin creates a unibody shell around the entire building for resistance to hurricanes.  Being made entirely of galvanized steel and cement, the new am-cor building shell is fire and termite resistant.
