Insulated Concrete Forms
HiCaliber is using the best building technology available — Quad-Lock insulated concrete forms. Quad-Lock provides optimal living and working environments that are built safely, more comfortably and environmentally friendly than standard building structures. Quad-Lock forms solid, reinforced, concrete buildings with space left within the walls to run utilities and backing through. This advanced building method provides superior insulation; R50+ & Sound Transmission Characteristic rating at 55+; making our walls virtually sound proof. In addition, Quad-lock is 4-Hour Fire Rated.
Energy Efficient Construction
As concerns about energy supplies and global warming continue to be debated, one idea remains clear; the best way to reduce energy use is effective building insulation. Since buildings are responsible for about half of our total annual energy consumption, it only makes sense to design and build them with a lower appetite for energy in the first place.
At HiCaliber, we work to design zero-energy homes. The term zero-energy refers to structures that have been designed with all components of the unit working together as a cohesive unit.
The building shell, the windows, the HVAC, the hot water and the electrical are designed and constructed to optimize performance, thus giving our homes a 500+ year life-expectancy.
