It is often said that concrete is the second most used resource on earth after water. We don’t know if that’s true or not, but we do know that Australia will produce almost 60 millions tonnes of it this year.
We also know that concrete is a highly energy intensive product to produce. The materials used are extractive, and difficult to reuse.
We believed there could be a new approach. An approach which would harness smart product design to develop a solution which can deliver all the benefits of traditional precast concrete products – speed of build, durability, and engineered – while avoiding the inevitable waste produced through demolition at the end of its life.
Since 2004, Envirocon has manufactured the Interbloc modular wall system. A unique precast concrete modular building system which delivers all the benefits of traditional concrete building products, and also can be reused over and over again.
Not only is it more environmentally sustainable, it is economically sustainable. A building product with multiple lives becomes a realisable asset. When you no longer need the structure, simply dismantle the blocks and on-sell them to the next customer.
