The Patented EcoShield Framing System has evolved to its current state over the past 10 years. The inventor of the system realized that with the increased use of natural resources that were being used in the construction of residential and commercial construction that eventually an equilibrium point of decreasing resources would make it harder to obtain these decreasing resources for future construction.
In an effort to address and solve this problem, several obstacles needed to be overcome. Those obstacles included addressing environmental sensitivity, geological hazards, building code restrictions, sustained durability of the structures, increased structural life span, ease of construction, conservation of natural resources, thermal-bridging, effective mass production of the system, and usage of the structural modules in the manufacturing of roofs, floors, interior and exterior walls.
A major obstacle was in creating a product that would out-live the typical methods of construction, while at the same time being more cost efficient. Of utmost importance was to provide a system that is better and stronger than the competition’s systems and that would also be able to provide the highest level of energy efficiency possible, without additional cost and expense.
Over the course of 10 years, a process was selected that would overcome the obstacles that had plagued the other systems in the past and achieve the following goals; the product/process needed to address ease of manufacturing, it needed to be easier and faster to assembly and finish in the field, it needed to be cost effective compared to other methods of construction, reduce the waste factor while providing the highest energy rating available and at the same time meet stringent building code requirements.
