Glass Groups Partner in Launch of E-Space System
June 24, 2011
Glasswerks Inc., Giroux Glass Inc. and Metal Window Corp., were among the several partner companies launching E-Space Systems (“E” stands for “ecological”), a prototypical e-building system, today at Dwell on Design in Los Angeles. The system differs from prefab constructions in that rather being assembled in a factory and moved to a building site, E-Space begins with components that are brought to a site flat packed and then assembled onsite.
E-Space Systems is a group of designers, architects, engineers and manufacturers who share a commitment to make available to a worldwide market building components that will allow energy-efficient dwellings to be quickly assembled, and deliver the best long-term value. The group’s goal is to design and manufacture building components that are quickly site-assembled, produce zero construction site waste and at the end of use be easily disassembled and re-purposed.
Other strategic allies in the group include Partner Panels, Simpson Strong-Tie, LITE Steelbeam, Premier SIPs, MagBoard, P2000 Insulation Systems, D.A. Foster Construction Inc. and Benchmark Builders Showroom.
According to information provided by Glasswerks, “By concentrating on new technology we serve as an applied R&D source for the building industry. Working with our strategic allies in manufacturing allows E-Space Systems to constantly innovate without the limitations and overhead of maintaining factories.”
