Frequently Asked Questions

Firstly you will decide on which kind of house you want to build. If you cannot find a suitable version from our sortiment, you can design you own house. After this you will need to build a foundation using concrete etc. After the foundation is finished, you are going to install certain blocks U-profiles to the foundation. The next step is to divide the blocks next to the building and start erecting the house starting from the corners. (see the assembly video). After you have finished the first layer according to the layout-scheme, please verify the dimensions. Then you should start doing the really fun part, which is really fast, stacking the blocks on top of each other. When you reach the last layer, you will tighten the blocks U-profiles with the delivered threaded rods and the superstructure is ready for the next phase. This means you can finish the frame of your house in one long day.

The Eco-blocks can be used commercial and residential construction. The only tools needed are rubber hammer, water level and wrench. Electric is not needed when using these construction tools so the building can be build to a place where electricity is not available. The Block can be modified with normal woodworking machines eg. when making a hole for an electrical socket.With Blocks your will have the frame of the house ready fast and easily. The 30 m2 building can be built in 2,5 hours by two persons without any professional experience within construction.

Block Solutions ATL USA technology is something totally different when comparing it to wood framing, metal framing,  brick and mortar construction. It’s a new clever way of building smart, sustainable and environmentally friendly houses in a fraction of the time compared to conventional building. Also the scalability is something extraordinary: one Block solutions production facility can produce on local level blocks for building up to 8000 homes annually.

Because the Blocks are so lightweight, it really is safe to build with the Blocks, and it is fun too!
Our innovative Blocks are produced from biocomposite or recycled plastics, supporting sustainability in the most environmentally friendly way. The carbon footprint of our product is close to zero. In Finland the woodfibre for our product originates from a by-product of the forest industry. Globally we are most likely able to us excess fibers eg. bamboo, sugarcane, acacia and rice husk.The recycled plastics are locally sourced which means that we will also clean up the environment. According to IEA global status report for buildings and construction 2019 the building sector contributed to 39% of the carbon dioxide emissions in 2018. Our Blocks are close to carbon neutral as stated earlier.

Almost anything you can think of building for your self, such as!
1. Privacy fence
2. Storage sheds
3. Patio furniture
4. Office space
5. Dumpster walls
6. Retaining walls
7. Adding room additions
8. Closing and car porches
9. Sunroom
10. Landscaping wall and so much more…

With Blocks you can build your own house with 1, 2, 3 or more storeys, summer cottage, stock, garage, sanitary facilities, fences, temporary stages eg. for wedding or for other parties and different structures for gardens etc. The Blocks can also be used as partitioning walls in exhibition centres, hospitals, schools or temporary mortuaries. If you are renovating you can build fast and easily new partition walls. With Blocks you can build almost anything but not a round room. Your own imagination is the only limit
Fiber reinforced Blocks have a higher load bearing capacity and relatively higher lifespan. Also the carbon footprint is lower for the biocomposite Blocks. The less expensive recycled Blocks are cost efficient and do possess a slightly higher carbon footprint.

Due to the light weight on some occasions, the weight has a huge impact on foundation. For example: a brick and mortar partitioning wall weighs about 400 pounds. The same sqm of blocks weigh only 44 pounds. If one floor has 320 feet of partitioning walls, the weight difference is 39,680 pounds. If you build 10 floors, the weight savings is  396,682 pounds. This has a huge impact on foundations. Due to the light weight, the blocks can be easily carried to upper floors which will have an dramatic impact on labor, costs and time.

The foundation can be made of concrete, stilts or almost any normal foundation you can think of.

In a similar sized block it’s about two times higher in loading capacity compared to Cinder blocks.

As we are not using single-use recycled plastics, the Blocks in this perspective are not degradable per say, any we are very happy of that. It is very important that we recycle the Blocks after the really long lifetime and reuse them for future purposes.
An extensive set of tests have been performed by an external accredited institute to verify the characteristics of the products. This includes thermal conductivity (U-value determination), fire testing, load bearing testing and tensile strength testing. These in return will then be a basis for future ETA-approval in the EU. Additional verification tests are being performed in at HBRC, Cairo, Egypt, Agrement ZA, South Africa and the USA-ATL.

The blocks have to be covered with gypsum board or concrete so that it will reach the required fire resistance.

Even though the blocks are lightweight, the strength is enormous. This means that the blocks do not add the costs compared to a normal wood, brick and mortor house.

One story homes are the best option when building with blocks. But you can also build two, three or more story homes with the Eco-blocks. You just erect the building with steel or concrete solution and do the normal walls with the Eco-blocks. The Eco-blocks have been tested by Eurofins and we have received all the official tests including loadbearing capacity of the blocks and determination of bending tensile strength of Eco-block modules.
