New Building Technology with Zero Waste

July 2015, Monster Commercial

A new building technology platform is emerging that is changing the way homes, multi-residential and light commercial buildings are being built. BONE Structure is unique in every way from the traditional method of construction.

Founded in 2005 by President Marc A. Bovet, BONE Structure’s innovative concept disrupts traditional construction methods across Canada, and is opening up the US market in California. It has attracted the attention of real estate developers from around the World. “A BONE Structure may be assembled in days but the results are built to last generations,” Bovet says, “Precision and speed do not need to compromise efficiency and originality.” BONE Structure has developed and patented an ingenious lightweight steel structure construction system (not wood) for precision, rigor and quality control that traditional construction methods cannot reach.  

The BONE Structure technology was inspired from a combination of LEGO® and Meccano® – pieces are simply snapped together. The lightweight, recycled steel frame is more stable than a traditional wood frame, which enables homeowners a beautiful and reconfigurable open-space concept, without intermediate beams or load-bearing walls. Electrical, plumbing, heating and ventilation systems are easily connected thanks to precut openings acting as “highways” within the structure, just like an airplane fuselage.

Each custom, tailor-made building has a specific number of screws and parts, taking the guesswork out of ordering, and eliminates unwanted budget increases. BONE Structure clients know exactly what they get and how much it costs. Not only is the end result aesthetically remarkable and sustainable, but the assembly process itself is efficient, economical and environmentally friendly. Clients can also save up to 90% in heating and cooling costs with a BONE Structure home.
