TORONTO, Sept. 18, 2014 /CNW/ - BONE Structure's innovative building technology has been creating a paradigm shift in Canada's construction industry. Launching in Toronto for the first time in the desirable Don Mills area (1 Tottenham Road, North York, M3C 2J3), this unique system gives owners the artistic liberty to design the home, the flexibility to modify the interior, and the ability to select custom exterior finishings. The final result is eye-catching yet adaptable to any neighbourhood aesthetic. The health benefits, reduced carbon footprint, and energy efficiencies of this technology make it a timeless, healthy, and smart choice. BONE Structure options include single-family dwellings, multi-residential units up to 4 stories high, and light commercial jobs.
Founded in 2005 by President Marc A. Bovet in Laval, Quebec, BONE Structures can be assembled in just four days using a lightweight recycled steel frame which snaps together like LEGOTM or MeccanoTM. No nails, no waste, no drilling, no cutting. BONE's 100% customizable characteristics and practicality of technology allows builders to erect unique structures quicker and more efficiently, with less disruption to both the owner and to the neighbourhood, making it an ideal fit for urban Toronto.
The custom two-storey home will be officially launched with a BARE BONE open house event from September 25-28 (schedule below). The Don Mills model home will still be under construction so visitors will be able to see the skeleton of the BONE Structure system and its attributes.
The Don Mills BONE Structure features:
- Energy-efficient and economical thermal envelope system: Hermetic encasement includes a soya-based polyurethane spray foam insulation and aerated basement slab void forms made from 100% recycled plastic
- ICF Foundation building system (insulated concrete form): Eliminates wood forms and prevents energy loss
- Wide open spaces and wall-ceiling fenestration: 100% recycled steel frame means no load-bearing walls. The patented Integrated Measuring System allows owners to modify the interior at any time by clicking or un-clicking walls, windows and doors
- Health benefits: No wood = no moisture or mold
- Surgical precision = No cracks in drywall or warping of structure
- Zero site waste / no unsightly dumpsters = Ideal choice for city building (60% of landfill waste is from construction sites)
Media and trade professionals are invited to the Don Mills BARE BONE open house event to speak with founder and president, Marc A. Bovet, and to view this unique housing system.
