How can the am-cor Prefab System help you?
Each am-cor Kit comes with:
Good news! All am-cor Kits are guaranteed to comply with IRC, IBC, and local USA building codes (2018 or later). In fact, all our materials are carefully specified to breeze through permit approvals & keep inhabitants safe:
The goal of inventor & architect Angus W. Macdonald was to rethink the entire building process from the ground up.
Looking for a resilient way to achieve Net Zero? Our standard spec. assemblies intelligently combine thermal properties of Ferrocement with modern insulation materials & practices:
Combining the above practices results in real-world high-performance off-grid residences—up to 6000 sq.ft. (560m2)—requiring zero energy for comfortable interior temperatures, as full-time homesteads for entire families & communities.
Let us take care of the hassle of framing and save yourself time, money, mess, and labor with our Prefab Kits.
am-cor Kits are efficiently manufactured in Culpeper, VA, USA in a factory setting with quality control, minimal waste, and a lower carbon footprint.
Ferrocement, aka structural stucco, is easy & simple to apply.
Your Kit's Ferrocement coat creates a unibody, hightly-reinforced, monocoque shell over the entire building, from Footer base to Wall top—and back down (Roof optional).
This continuous stucco stress-skin protects against disaster forces like fires, hurricane winds & flooding + as weather/rain shield, structural sheathing, wind bracing, etc.
Overhead as well, our Prefab Kits are designed to be compatible with popular roofing products and standard installation methods.

Inside & outside, our Prefab Kits are compatible with regular finishes, popular products, and standard installation methods.
When we talk about the 100-year house, we mean it. Inventor & architect Angus W. Macdonald designed the am-cor System to save lives and protect inhabitants & property.
Using our Prefab Kits gives your buildings the high-quality and strength to be a real cut above standard construction.
We're happy to answer technical questions, get feedback, and hear about your projects!
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.
||Use of the am-cor system significantly lowers construction cost, using:
||am-cor’s unique FerroStress™technology creates a continuous thin Ferrocement stress skin using amcorite™structural gel: am-cor buildings use 40% less material than standard construction, lowering material, shipping, and construction costs.|
||The am-cor System is panelized and pre-engineered; it obviates the need for a number of expensive and redundant building practices, reduces onsite errors, and lowers management costs & liabilities.|
||am-cor building are erected in days. am-cor projects are built in record time, without large crews, heavy machinery, complicated rigging, etc. Less time on site = Faster completion|
||In addition to panelization and pre-engineering, am-cor inc. provides full site support:
||am-cor hotels, houses, villas, offices and casinos have weathered hurricanes, floods, tornadoes, and seismic events with no structural damage. The am-cor system provides higher quality for a lower price, balancing beauty with affordability.|
