At EchoStone, we continuously research and develop high-quality, eco-friendly, and innovative technology and construction materials to provide a complete system for core and shell that standardizes and controls quality construction for scalability and sustainability.
The mobile concrete machine utilized by EchoStone is a state-of-the-art, one-of-a-kind, computerized, mobile “concrete factory on wheels.” It produces consistent, continuous, monolithic pours on location in almost any environment. It is controlled by an intuitive interface with data logging for controlling the mixing of ingredients and desired output densities. Signiﬁcantly saving on time and waste, our machines have the capacity to produce concrete at a rate comparable to 5 standard concrete trucks – across 60 meters vertically and 200 meters horizontally.
This monolithic structure offers significant structural stability. It contains no seams, which further prevents water and insects from entering the home. The machine uses an intuitive computer panel, allowing a worker to set the density requirements of the concrete output as required.
Our machine creates proprietary Cellular Lightweight Concrete (CLC). It is produced by “blowing” pressurized air into the concrete mixture. The air bubbles allow CLC to retain the strength characteristics and functional properties of traditional concrete while offering certain advantages.
We utilize a world-class modular formwork that is lightweight, reusable, and recyclable. This highly configurable formwork supports the continuous, monolithic pour of concrete that is fed from the EchoStone machine, resulting in a structure with extreme strength, durability, and longevity.
The lightweight and intuitive nature of the formwork empowers an inclusive and gender-neutral workforce, allowing less-experienced workers to pick it up quickly. An important characteristic of the formwork is that its reusable up to 300 times and is made up of 100% recyclable composite material!
Onsite concrete production with world-class formwork optimizes construction operations.
EchoStone provides machines and formwork determined by the project’s Building Program, to facilitate the required speed and scale of development.
EchoStone’s Cellular Lightweight Concrete and innovative method of construction create high-quality core and shell finishes that reduce costs.
EchoStone’s technology catalyzes sustainability performance and IFC EDGE certification through energy and carbon reduction.
An important aspect of EchoStone’s commitment to innovation and sustainability is the continuous drive towards advancing EchoStone’s Housing System. At our global HQ, our pursuit for innovation has three primary objectives: improve efficiency, lower the carbon emissions, and develop a suite of products that complement the EchoStone Housing System. Focusing on these objectives ensure that we can continuously innovate and offer competitive advantages in areas of cost reductions, quality, and sustainability to our valued customers and partners.
Not only do we seek to ensure our technology meets our value proposition objectives but our global innovations act as a “hub and spoke” to our in-market operations. A critical part of EchoStone’s operations and customer projects requires local technology approvals and product testing. As such, all local technology advancements and testing are done in collaboration with our centralized operations team, to ensure that best practices acquired through our headquarters and each of our other markets, can be carried forward to all markets.
By increasing efficiency with our housing system, we will increase profits by reducing construction time and minimizing the amount of waste and associated costs. By investing in technology advancements and new products, EchoStone will be able to ensure our future competitiveness in what can best be described as an aggressively competitive construction technology sector.
We also recognize we can’t do this alone. We identify and build strategic relationships with groups that help us carry out our established priorities and new product (R&D) initiatives successfully. These include private construction technology experts, academic research institutions, international research laboratories, commercial vendors, non-profit trade associations, and more. We look forward to continued innovations that will better serve affordable and sustainable housing for future generations to come.
