WEST PALM BEACH, FL, December 18, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- At BIOTEKT, we believe the future of home-building outside of urban areas is in earth protected homes that are integrated with their natural surroundings. We manufacture bio-architecture with BIOTEKT to create sustainable homes made from the same high-tech materials as those used to build the US space shuttles. The end results are stunning energy-efficient earth-sheltered homes that are unique, and which can be designed to suit the home buyer's needs.
Our BIOTEKT homes have been described as looking similar to those of the Hobbit Houses in Lord of the Rings. That is because our modular panels have been designed to be covered with earth and vegetation which results in comfortable homes with lower maintenance and lower energy costs.
BIOTEKT PANELS ARE HIGH-QUALITY
Homes built with our BIOTEKT panels are not much different in overall costs from other custom home builds. In fact, they may be slightly higher in cost due to the architectural challenges of dealing with curved panels. In addition, shipping the panels internationally is a cost that needs to be factored in, as all our product is currently manufactured in Columbia, Latin America. Soon, we will have manufacturing capability in other countries to serve the Mexico and US market, possibly one for the European market. While BIOTEKT homes are not inexpensive to build, they provide savings going forward in the form of lower heating and cooling costs.
We use a modular construction system with panels manufactured with composites of recycled materials that are highly durable. These panels can be assembled to create earth-sheltered custom homes or structures for commercial uses.
BIOTEKT IS A MANUFACTURER
As an international manufacturer, BIOTEKT now has distributors in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Romania. We design and fabricate the panels, then ship them to the homeowner/builder. The homeowner will need to engage the services of a local architect and a construction company to design and pour the foundation, assemble the Biotekt panels, build, and finish the home onsite. Permits and meeting local building codes are the responsibility of the local professionals and contractors. Though we are not directly involved with the actual builds of homes using our product, we can provide consulting services and recommendations to assist local architects and builders with our knowledge of how to achieve the best-desired result, a nature immersed residential home or commercial building.
Our 10-year warranty for the quality and integrity of the materials and against manufacturing defects is contingent upon the builder following our detailed manual of the manufacturer's installation instructions.
If you are exploring the idea of building a unique, eco-friendly home or commercial building, you will want to learn more about what we do. Our products' materials, design, and manufacturing are all done to support environmentally conscious and sustainable goals. Currently, a build of agricultural EcoSpheres using BIOTEKT is underway in Florida to create a vegan Eco Farm. Several homes have been built in the US with our products and also an eco-spa in Virginia.
We send you the Biotekt shell: You build your Eco-Home
If you have ever thought of living closer to nature and custom building a truly unique Biotekt home, then you should consider a BIOTEKT home. Think of our manufactured panels and dome ceilings as your building blocks to use to design your home or commercial building. In fact, think about being a 21st-century eco-hobbit!
Our panels have been designed to be covered by soil and vegetation in order to take advantage of how they can reduce energy costs and maintenance.
THERE ARE INFINITE POSSIBILITIES FOR YOUR DESIGN
We have developed a number of Biotekt prototypes, but your imagination can take you in a different direction. In fact, you can begin with just a general idea or sketch that our designers can interpret into the system constraints... The design process is a result of collaboration between Biotekt designers and the Client. If you visit our website www.biotekt.com, you can see more conceptual diagrams for proposed Biotekt prototypes.
BIOTEKT MAKES THE PANELS: YOU DESIGN AND BUILD YOUR HOME
We fabricate the panels, then ship them to you, the homeowner/builder. As an international manufacturer, BIOTEKT now has Authorized Agents in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Romania. As the homeowner, you receive shipment of the panels and then you get to do the rest to build your unique eco-home. Unless you are a building professional you will need to engage the services of a local architect or engineer to assist with your design and local permitting, and a contractor to pour the foundation, assemble the panels, build, and finish the home onsite.
Permits and meeting local building codes are the responsibility of the local professionals and contractors. Though we are not directly involved with the actual builds of homes using our product, we can provide consulting services and recommendations to assist local architects and builders with our knowledge of how to achieve the best-desired result, a nature immersed residential home or commercial building.
We have customers in several countries who have used our BIOTEKT panels to build small homes, large homes, even commercial buildings like spas, shops, even an eco-farm. We know that our customers will continue to find new ways to design and assemble our panels to build their own unique eco-homes and commercial spaces.
What is Biotekt? Is it a housing solution for the 21st century?
BIOTEKT is a unique combination of old and new technologies and sustainable construction methods: Earth berm construction, green roofs and walls, passive solar design, and prefabricated composite shells. In this beautiful synthesis we solve the problems usually associated with earth construction like high labor costs and intensive craftsmanship, as well as the problems with prefabricated housing, which are generally less permanent, lightweight structures.
BIOTEKT systems are divided in two distinct products, ECOSPHERE™ AND OASIS™; both of them are based on a super-strong, insulated, composite shell formed by various shapes that can be combined to form an enormous variety of floor plans, with domed and vaulted roofs and straight walls.
In the ECOSPHERE™ the shell is then covered with earth and plants to form a massive structure, and in OASIS™ it is covered with stabilized sand and a mixture of local materials. The shell is formed of lightweight components that can be quickly put together by a crew of three men with hand tools, and includes ducts for wiring and plumbing where necessary; it can be built over a simple concrete slab or over a basement.
The latest leading-edge technology for earth contact structures is a modular construction system, manufactured with composites, designed to be covered with earth and vegetation. We offer living spaces that are:
1. Easy and fast to assemble and maintain
2. Will pay for themselves in energy savings
3. Made from recycled materials that will last for centuries
4. Beautiful and comfortable to live in.
