Sustainable Applications

Spiral Incremental Construction Applications & Sustainability.

Ideal SpirInCo Building Design Applications
  • Owners of investment properties such as apartments, strip malls, or office condos who need the ability to efficiently enlarge their buildings on the same footprint.
  • Home expansions which could include a mother-in-law suite, a home office, or a studio.
  • Contemporary Studios – arts, crafts, personal services, etc.
  • Supplementary classrooms for public school systems that have fluctuating needs within their districts. These classrooms will provide more protection against storms – much more than the trailers and modular boxes presently in wide-spread use in many states
  • Entrepreneurs who start out with only the amount of housing that meets their initial needs – knowing that they can easily expand their buildings as their businesses grow.
  • Expanding families who do not wish to relocate and cannot significantly change the footprint of their home.
  • Beach condos or mountain resort condos that need to be very storm resistant – and expandable.
  • Day care centers.
  • Small private schools.
  • Medical clinics/suites.
  • Public housing.
  • Vertical urban farming.

Sustainability Is Superlative With SpirInCo.
With a SpirInCo configured building the original footprint remains unchanged for the life of the building regardless of the number of building expansions. The space for expansion is upward not outward. Since no more land is required for an expansion, the SpirInCo techniques result in a sustainable usage of acreage. Sustainable construction aims at reducing the environmental impact of a building over its entire lifetime, while optimizing its economic viability and the comfort and safety of its occupants. Spiraling growth will render sprawling growth obsolete.

While standard building practices are guided by short term economic considerations, sustainable construction is based on best practices which emphasize long term affordability, quality and efficiency. At each stage of the life cycle of the building, it increases comfort and quality of life, while decreasing negative environmental impacts and increasing the economic sustainability of the project. A building designed and constructed in a sustainable way minimizes the use of water, raw materials, energy, land … over the whole life cycle of the building.
