More than 1,000 State-of-the-Art Technologies & Systems
Our collective resources, relationships and experiences over the past 30 to 40 years provide a comprehensive set of state of the art, commercially proven technologies that apply to virtually every aspect of designing and developing sustainable, energy and waste independent buildings (residential, commercial, industrial and public) up to entire communities and towns.
Our umbrella of resources includes several hundred inventors, technologists, scientists and engineers from a wide range of disciplines that provide more than one thousand relevant technologies. We not only provide the system, but the expertise as well.
These technologies have all been prototyped and proven under the auspices of one or more of our principals. There are many more technologies in the incubation process, but not yet commercially proven. From these “technologies in progress”, many of which will prove to be commercially viable; we can promise to be at the leading edge of technologies far into the future.
We draw from these resources and select the “best of the best” and most appropriate technologies for each of our sustainable living and energy independence projects, based on its environmental, economic and social needs and goals. This method is applied to entire sustainable community projects as well as individual residential, commercial and public projects.
Many of these technologies also are in need of manufacturing capacity and facilities. In our Sustainable Community projects, each local area and technology is assessed to determine the most appropriate manufacturing for the area. These manufacturing facilities create new, good paying jobs to employ the local population and attract new residents to the area. Each 400 to 500 acre community will require five to ten manufacturing facilities in order to create a sufficient number of new jobs.
The manufacturing plant designs will include high levels of automation and “smart plant” technologies to ensure long-term competitiveness, long term job stability and higher paying jobs. The Technology manufacturing center will also include centralized shipping, receiving, warehousing and logistics to further capture cost efficiencies.
We fully engage in partnerships with local government officials and private sector entities to plan and design communities that incorporate local needs, goals and aesthetics and utilizes local labor, product and services providers to the fullest extent possible. As the manufacturing facilities are being developed, training and education programs are implemented for the local job seekers, to ensure that a skilled labor force is available to fill the newly created jobs.
