The Green Life Building Panels produced using the EMMEDUE Technology, can be made to work with any design. The integral Fire, Acoustic and Thermal resistance built in by default allow the building fabric to work with designers to provide a beautiful home that doesn't cost the earth. A Modern Method of Construction (MMC) that provides value and quality. Simple to use in its basic form it can be dressed to represent any finish from brick to timber or render as standard. With a low carbon footprint the panels can be used in a range of applications including on-site, off-site and precast structures. If you want bespoke panels, shapes or alternative core materials we are here to help. Our NEW factory in Corby will be pleased to supply the market with a UK made Advanced Building System.
We want to supply a building system fit for the 21st century: a modern structural fabric and advanced construction technique to ensure comfort, energy efficiency and safety in every home and workplace. Our product will protect your purse and our environment.
Up to 40%* less CO2 in the construction of the building. Up to 65%* less when in use.
The M2 construction system ensures indoor warmth and comfort. The top-level insulation provided by its Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) panels drastically reduces a building’s energy consumption and carbon emissions throughout its life span, promoting sustainable development and slowing global warming. A comparative carbon footprint analysis showed that the M2 single panel building system produced approximately 60% less C02 than a traditional reinforced concrete building with masonry facing.
REDEFINING MODERN METHODS
Compared to traditional materials
and methods, Our Advanced Building System and panels achieve better results at substantially lower cost. A raw structure made with GLB panels can
cost up to 40% less than a traditional
structure of comparable market value.
The panels are made of self-extinguishing expanded polystyrene, completely encapsulated in reinforced concrete which cover the sides of panels and prevent combustion. Their fire resistance meets international standards with laboratory tests providing a 2 hour fire rating as standard. Different cores (mineral wool) allow compliance with new UK regulations for buildings above 18m
Our lightweight Grey EPS core is UK made and 95% air fully recyclable and non toxic. The fine concrete used is also recyclable and has a very low carbon footprint for any structural product. The carbon emissions associated with production and installation of the system (embedded CO2e) is less that that of wood, steel or brick. fully insulated structural walls have a 33kgCO2e/m2 foot print compared to 170+kgCO2e/m2 for brick and block
The Advanced Building System gives full design flexibility offering a complete range of building elements: load-bearing walls, curtain walls, floors, ceilings, roofs and stairs. The panels are easy to use
in the construction of any type of
structure, and can be cut on site to any geometric shape, flat or curved.
The Advanced Building System has undergone internationally recognised laboratory tests that prove the structural strength of its monolithicjoints, meaning buildings can withstand earthquakes, cyclones or even explosions of over 29.5 tons per square metre.
The efficient logistics of the Advanced Building System reduce construction times by as much as
50% compared to traditional building methods. GLB panels are machine made, assembly processes are optimised, leading to big savings on labour costs. Off-site and on-site optimisation can be built into the panel design and fabrication at the factory.
IN DIFFICULT SITES
Using the M2 Advanced Building System minimises disruption to neighbours and neighbourhoods where access is limited and the site surrounded by existing structures. For example, a crowded city centre site like this one in Amsterdam.
The core feature of the M2 building system is a modular panel. The M2 panel is not prefabricated but comprises two galvanised welded steel wire meshes joined together by connectors and enclosing an expanded polystyrene sheet, shaped as required. The machine-produced panel is then assembled and sprayed with shotcrete on site.
We offer a complete range of building elements from load-bearing walls, partitions and curtain walls to floors, roofing and stairs. Thus a whole building can be constructed using the same building system, optimising the supply chain, shortening construction time and reducing labour requirements.
