“Tomorrows Buildings Today”
The use of EPS panels for construction in the residential and commercial industries has been perfected over the last 6 years by GMI homes. In our opinion moving into the future with this method of building is not only going to benefit home owners but it will also benefit the environment for years to come. EPS Panel is a proven construction material that is well-suited to the extremes of the Australian climate. It is a cost-effective, lightweight construction material with excellent insulation properties.
(EP) as an efficient and effective thermal insulation material can play its part in reducing carbon dioxide emissions and make a very positive contribution to the alleviation of global warming. The consumption of fossil fuels for both domestic and industrial heating is a significant contributor to the global output of carbon dioxide.
It has been estimated that the effective application of EPS insulation could cut carbon dioxide emissions by up to 50%. The energy used in the manufacture of EPS is recovered within six months by the energy saved in the buildings in which it is installed. For the remainder of the life of the building, the EPS reduces its energy requirement thereby requiring the combustion of less fossil fuel which results in less CO2 being generated. Furthermore the insulation performance of EPS does not deteriorate during its lifetime therefore the reduction in emissions lasts the full lifetime of a building.
Flexibility in Design
The EPS system is one of the most flexible of building materials and with GMI homes there is no design to hard or too difficult. Special programs have been designed to allow our clients to have there requirements designed using this new form of material.
