What makes the NUFORM HOSUE KIT environmentally sustainable? The HOUSE KIT walls are composed of rigid recycled PVC Polymer serving as the formwork for concrete. NUFORM® is implements an environmentally friendly structures that use R3 – REUSE – RECYCLE – REPURPOSE, sustainable technology, which forms the core of our manufacturing process.
- REUSE: The environmentally-friendly CONFORM® contributes towards a possible 15 Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) points for less waste
- RECYCLE: CONFORM® is manufactured from at least 55% pre-consumer recycled material that is waste from other vinyl manufactured products to save on natural resources. Other recycled materials could include rebar for reinforcing the walls, or recycled concrete aggregate from construction waste materials.
- REPURPOSE: using spare parts to create a new product, for example, we repurpose PVC window frames to manufacture RELINE® and CONFORM®.
Key operational benefits that LEED-certified buildings enjoy include lower operating costs, reduction in waste sent to landfills, conservation of energy and water, reduction of harmful greenhouse gas emissions, tax rebates and zoning allowances.
Other benefits of NUFORM® R3 technology is highly mold and mildew resistant (as per ASTM G21), along with low VOC emissions, which leads to healthier interior environments. Excellent thermal properties and light reflectivity promotes lower building energy costs, increased durability, longer lifecycle and low maintenance.
