The BONE Structure® steel construction technology combines the advantages of a post-and-beam structure with an integrated energy efficient solution for the thermal envelope. BONE Structure Homes are Net Zero Energy Ready and can easily reach LEED or PassivHaus Certifications. The BONE in-house team of engineers and designers is dedicated to innovation, research and development. Lessons learned on each project are continuously used to improve BONE products and processes. BONE strives to stay at the spearhead of our industry and provide architects with better tools and building solutions to design striking and timeless buildings.
BONE Structure’s high performance integrated design thermal envelope offers extreme energy efficiency through a combination of expanded polystyrene panels and closed cell polyurethane foam insulation. Wall insulation is at least R28.5, while roof insulation is R53 or higher.
The 11-gauge galvanized steel components used in a BONE Structure home are precision designed on 3D software and laser cut with the same technology used to machine parts for aircrafts and automobiles.
Bones of Steel
The steel structure is made to last so you will be able to enjoy your BONE Structure home regardless of what lies ahead. Our designs often require no interior load-bearing walls (so no limitations), which means a BONE Structure home is infinitely adaptable and reconfigurable.
Fits Any Lot
Our flexible architecture and just-in-time delivery make the BONE Structure technology an ideal solution for difficult locations, whether they are space constrained, like an urban lot, or remote access rural terrains.
An integrated steel-spine staircase system produces stairs which are as solid as they are stylish. Exterior siding, patios, balconies and pergolas are all features that can be incorporated into the BONE Structure system with ease.
Pre-cut openings in various elements of the structure are ready to accommodate electricity, ventilation and heating. These “highways” provide easy routing while simplifying installation work and maintenance.
Not only is steel recyclable, unlike wood or concrete, but the BONE Structure steel construction technology is so precise that there is nothing left over once the job is complete. Few people realize that 50% of waste in landfills comes from construction sites. This is because, on average, the construction of a small house using traditional methods fills a minimum of three waste containers of 40 cubic meters! And you end up paying not only for wasted materials, but also for their removal, the rental of containers, and labor.
