PRLog - Nov. 11, 2012 - Orlando… Nov 11 HOT SUNDAY EVENING STORY In what is believed to be the first time buying a home gives you stock in the builder, those whose homes were destroyed by Superstorm Sandy will also become shareholders in the building science firm that pioneered the automated technology. Using a mixture of aromatic co polymer and aggregate to form the shell for a 1500 sq.ft. home on the foundation that once held the flooded home in 14 days, a portable factory called the "QuikiehomeMaker" produces it at the site with unskilled labor. As a second bonus for owners they also get paid for helping mount their replacement home's wall sections as part of the labor force, giving them immediate income for food and personal supplies.

Unlike typical "stick-built" structures the wall components make the sections virtually water, fire, termite, and even drive-by shooting resistant  No pipe dream, the two sample models built in Texas withstood Hurricane "Ike" while most everything else was flattened, making the "Quikiehome" Automated Flood Replacement Structure (QAFRS) unlikely to suffer from future floods or windstorms despite Mother Nature's intent on repeating the tragedy.  The Emerging Growth Institute "think tank" which is mentoring the project suggests that tying stock ownership in a high tech development benefits victims more than just by replacing their destroyed homes. "These people in six states,( Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Alaska, New Jersey, and New York) have suffered and its time to give back more then just offering them a trailer and a long wait to get back into suitable housing," explained EGI's Research Projects Director Mike Shulman. “Giving them stock in the company that gave them back their house is the least we can do. It's also a way to let them potentially profit from what they went through as the stock value rises because it is their involvement that focuses disaster agencies and lenders on the “Next Generation of Affordable Housing” built by automation."Shulman said.

QUIKIEHOME Industries, Inc.  is a developer and producer of diverse innovative research-based applications for  “Next Generation” construction technology applications.   It has developed and delivers from the portability of its “QUIKIEHOME-MAKER” mobile factory system a range of innovative, value-added sustainable material for use in residential living, commercial productivity, and other structures for individual owners or as part of a community rebuilding. It focuses on the niche opportunities to provide alternatives to replacement of structures damaged by the ravages of “Mother Nature”  and establishes creative partnerships to encourage global use of its innovative designs for economical, sustainable results. Its “QUIKIESHED”  product line delivers storage capability for aftermarket  and home improvement applications. Its “QUIKIEFENCE” product line delivers fencing capability for GC, contractor, aftermarket, and home improvement applications. The “QUIKIEHIME-MAKER” mobile factory system is exportable as a free-standing construction capability.

The basic structural “QH” components are extruded  in 4 feet width by 8 feet length for ease of handing  during the house construction process , but can be prefabricated up to 40 feet in length.  “QH” components  are connected to the prepared foundation during construction of the house with added strength from a dual side coating of structural cement plaster aggregate (concrete). Pre-assembled modules for kitchen and bath are placed before roofing containment. Aggregate mix is added on-site 1½ on the bottom and 3 inches on the top side of panels to complete the “QH” mounting system.

*The coating is accurately called a “Structural Cement Plaster” and is considered concrete if it includes aggregate that is greater than ¼ inch.  For the purposes of this study, it is called concrete.

Panels used for load bearing walls are generally 5 inches thick..  The panels can withstand 200 mile-per-hour (mph) winds and seismic forces up to 8 on the Richter scale, have a 2 to 4-hour fire resistance rating 3, and are vermin- and termite-resistant. The panels are also energy efficient, with insulation values starting at greater than  R-9.  This value does not include the air tightness of the system nor the thermal mass advantages which increase the R-value. (see example under A comparable 2” x 4” stud wall might have an insulation of R-8 or R-9. [(VanderWerf et al, 1995]). The panels are made with recycled and sustainable materials and the protective concrete structural coating will last a long time (over 100 years). All of the materials and can be  reclaimed and recycled when the life cycle is complete. Only a minor amount of wood products  (door casings, window casings, and cabinets in the kitchen and bath)  are used in the house—accounting for approximately 3 percent of the cost.
