Nearly 20 years ago, our founder came across an advanced construction technique for building houses, apartment blocks, warehouses, factories, or corporate headquarters from EMMEDUE.
Inspired, we have brought the EMMEDUE technology to the UK under our Green Life Buildings brand and from our factory in Corby we provide our innovative, sustainable, and cost-effective structural building solutions to developers, housing associations and local authorities.
Our factory is the only factory that produces the unified system in the UK, and the most modern EMMEDUE EMMESMART plant in Europe.
Approved by the Government as a Modern Method of Construction, our system is a significant step on the path to top quality construction with less impact on our environment.
Simple construction using UK made Polystyrene and fine concrete to provide an extremely low carbon build simply and efficiently. Our sustainable system creates less CO2 in construction (33kgCO2e/m2) and saves over 65% of user energy requirements than traditional homes and our panels provide less waste in design and production, they can be recycled and, thanks to being lightweight, it saves on transport.
Any shape, structural or not, our panels can be cut on site to any geometric shape so give full design flexibility, offering a complete range of building elements: load-bearing walls, curtain walls, floors, ceilings, roofs, and stairs. Mix and match with other systems.
Our advanced building system has undergone internationally recognised laboratory tests that prove the structural strength of its monolithic joints, meaning it can withstand earthquakes and cyclone as well as day to day family life. Fix to the walls wherever you like.
Panels are made of self-extinguishing expanded polystyrene, completely encapsulated in reinforced concrete which cover the sides of panels and prevent combustion. They meet international fire resistance standards, providing an REI rating of 120 minutes.
The Advanced Building System reduces construction times by as much as 50% compared to traditional building methods.
A raw structure made with GLB panels can cost up to 40% less than a traditional structure of comparable market value. Plus, panels are machine made and assembly processes are optimised, leading to big savings on labour costs and all with a carbon benefit too.
The panels produced using the EMMEDUE (M2) technology have been used to construct over 1 million buildings all over the world using offsite construction in various ways, from modules through to panels provided for the self-build market.

We know you are under pressure to reduce construction costs and build time, while also building in a more sustainable way. Our building system will provide you with greater speed of construction, a lower carbon footprint and better value than traditional bricks and mortar, steel, or timber frames. So, why not change the way you build today?Price Your Job
