The Green Solution: The Green Brick
g. Versatility: Almost any type of building can be constructed with the Green Brick Interlocking Building System. The main design constraints are that the plan should be rectangular and all wall dimensions and openings must be multiples of the width of the brick type used. All other principles of design and construction such as dimensioning of foundations, protection against rain and ground moisture, construction of ceilings and roofs, etc., can be the same as for other standard building types. So, it can be used for multiple applications, such as: Community Housing; Day Care Centers, Orphanages & Schools; Medical Clinics, Community Centers, Chapels & Churches, among others.
...for larger scale projects, the bricks can be pressed in centralized production units, from where, complete kits can be shipped out to each project location.
f. Stability & Durability: The structural stability and durability of the Green Bricks Interlocking Building System construction is far greater than that of comparable traditional construction, particularly using timber. The inserting of steel reinforcements in vulnerable parts of buildings, vertically and horizontally, making them structural walls, not just free standing ones, proves to be wind and earthquake resistance, making it a permanent solution for many places hardly hit by emergency & natural disasters.
h. Additional advantages of the 2-Hole Eco-Friendly Green Bricks:
1. Weight: The two holes in The Green Bricks make the bricks lighter, therefore saving raw materials and making it easier for anyone to handle them.
2. Hydraulic & electrical installation: The two holes are perfect for the hidden installation of all hydraulic and electrical materials, unlike conventional construction where a wall is built and then you have to break a channel to add them or leave them exposed. The holes in the bricks naturally creates a solution for the placement of such accessories... Read more
