IT EASY!

Dry constructions are a viable, cost-effective alternative and above all in strongly growing than the traditional systems.

The type of dry structures on the market today is very varied and the offer concerns steel, wood and cement prefabricated structures.

THE PREFABRICATED MODULAR STEEL FRAME SOLUTIONS PROPOSED BY HOMY, OFFER SIGNIFICANT ADVANTAGES FROM VARIOUS POINTS OF VIEW.

Stronger and safer structure

The use of steel allows for a high level of precision and adherence to the structure calculation model, thanks to its isotropic properties. Steel structures have physical and chemical qualities which are identical throughout the product and which react uniformly to stress.

Fire proofing

Structures made in steel provide more passive fire protection than prefabricated wood houses. The Homy system is VKF certified (the Swiss fire-resistance certification).

Antiseismic

Steel constructions have optimal antiseismic qualities, given the high elasticity of the material. The system adopted by Homy easily passed all the tests of the European Union’s ELISSA project relating to the structure’s response to high levels of seismic stress.

Healthier

Compared to other types of prefabricated buildings, homes in steel are more durable and healthier. Steel doesn’t conduct moisture nor is subject to corrosion which could put the structure’s stability at risk.

Time savings

All structural elements, the contours and the panels are made and pre-assembled at the company, ready to be commissioned. By doing so, both work in the construction yard and downtime are reduced, thereby lowering costs. This also brings about more accurate control in the assembly phase, reducing the percentage of errors found in traditional construction yards. Being dry construction, lengthy drying periods are also eliminated, allowing for short completion times.

Economic savings

Reduced turnaround times, affordable material pricing, no need for heavy duty equipment and machinery in the construction yard and the zeroing of waste due to the elimination of human error all mean significant savings on the purchase price. In addition, the structure’s excellent thermal insulation properties and the absence of the need for maintenance both provide a second layer of savings over the long term, lasting the entire life of the structure.

Zero margins of error

Human error is practically reduced to zero because the steel contouring processes are entirely automated. Project execution in the construction yard doesn’t require specialized workmen as the structure’s elements only need to be connected to each other through the use of lightweight equipment.

Environmentally friendly

The greatest challenge of the 21st century is without a doubt the rational use of the planet’s limited resources, which includes a more mindful approach even in construction. With the dry steel frame construction system, even the amount of waste generated is reduced to a minimum and all materials used are recyclable.

Versatility and customisation

Compared to wood and concrete, steel is a much more durable, non-corrosive and greatly versatile material, characteristics which are also inevitably transferred to the final construction. Thanks to its elevated structural capabilities, steel allows for the construction of higher buildings which are subjected to greater loads. Its versatility offers greater possibilities for customisation, for both the buyer and the designer, when defining the building’s characteristics. In addition, the customization possibilities in terms of technology and other systems are practically limitless.

Modularity

No solution is faster, easier and more economical than the dry prefabricated steel system, which makes a high degree of customisation possible in terms of both function and design. This allows for optimal adaptation to the chosen construction site, even if the customer wishes to expand the structure of the surface by adding new rooms, new floors, or even disassembling and re-assembling the building in a new location.

Thermal and acoustic insulation at maximum levels

With the proper technical and architectural devices, it high performance in thermal and acoustic insulation can be achieved. Even systems which provide good energy efficiency, such as heating systems which make use of renewable resources, are easily integrated, thereby obtaining the highest energy ratings possible.
