Our Solution

EchoStone Housing System

Our mission is to rapidly construct high-quality housing for low and middle-income communities, at scale.

EchoStone combines best-in-class design, development, and construction elements to achieve high-quality housing standards for communities in need.

EchoStone also offers governments, non-governmental organizations, and real estate developers in emerging markets greater opportunities to build high-quality housing at far greater speed and scale.

1. State-Of-The-Art Technology

The EchoStone System is a meeting of the industrialization of labor and technology. At the center of the system is the Swedish-designed Aercrete 625 Machine, high-quality cellular lightweight concrete (CLC) and reusable panel formwork. These innovative technologies replace the use of steel, aluminum, plywood, and cinder blocks with no heavy-lifting equipment required.

3. High-Quality Structures

Invented in Sweden in 1904, EchoStone utilizes CLC because it is scalable, more environmentally friendly, and quicker to set than traditional concrete. CLC also retains the same tensile, compression, and rigidity standards of traditional concrete while offering many advantages.
