The challenge with affordable housing, emergency relief shelters, disaster relief shelters, and SiP Panels lies is the ability to delivery permanent structures FAST! But construction is complex, takes lots of skilled labor, involves dozens of products, and requires tight management and logistics… right? IADDIC removes the complexity, dramatically speeds up the process and creates new local business opportunities with its family of low cost homes, disaster relief products, and micro-enterprise solutions.
How many tents do you know of that offer seamless watertight R30 insulation, solid locking doors and windows, lasts for more than 5 years of continuous use, and is so tough you can stand on the roof? Introducing the Insulated Tent by IADDIC, the world’s first structurally insulated tent by IADDIC. Made of a patented eco-friendly memory foam, steel supports, and a long lasting exterior skins, this Tent is ideal for disaster relief housing, mobile command, workforce or medical facilities, IDP camps, transitional shelters and more. The Tent ships complete in a vacuum sealed package for easy stockpiling in bundles just 9 inches thick.
What if you could deploy a truly structurally sound and secure house within hours of an emergency; and what if that very same house could be relocated and upgraded into a permanent home? Introducing the world’s first structurally insulated emergency response shelter, by IADDIC. Made on site in a few hours using our SIH (Structurally Insulated Housing) material, solid locking doors and windows and firmly anchored to the ground. Ideal for IDP camps, transitional shelters, or any temporary structure that needs exceptional insulation, extreme weather resistance, and security with the opportunity to upgrade to permanent.
Can you imagine a permanent home being made in just a few hours by just a few people? Introducing Houses by IADDIC, the world’s first structurally insulated home. Insulated foam has been around the construction industry for decades in spray-on form, SIPs (Structurally Insulated Panels), or ICFs (Insulated Concrete Forms). IADDIC has patented and perfected the process of molding an entire seamless room at a time; roof, windows, doors, vents. This house has the potential to transform the low cost housing industry in terms of cost, speed, energy efficiency, cultural styling, manpower utilization, and micro-business opportunity for the people that need it most.
SIP Panels are a mainstay in the construction industry. They are used extensively in modern construction and offer a number of benefits including being: highly insulated and easy to assemble. The larger concern for most however, is that they are not readily available to the DIY home builder, are rarely tailored to specific needs, and are expensive to ship. Our line of DIY SIP Panel kits changes this by giving you the opportunity to build your panels to your requirements. This way, you get the benefit of a SIP with the flexibility to meet your project needs…at an affordable price.
How Shelters and Low Cost Housing are Made
Using “field build” kits, shelters and houses are built quickly on site. Tent shelters are factory built and shipped from our factory.
Sustainable micro-factories, the world’s first home building business-in-a-box. These kits provide a turn-key container (20ft or 40ft) loaded with at least one mold (made to customer spec), and SIH materials and related supplies to make up to 70 homes, training and project management to ensure your first projects are successful and you are ready to launch your new housing business.
Can you imagine fitting 5 homes in the back of a pickup truck and going anywhere in the world? We designed the EcoMOLD with just this challenge in mind. This “go-anywhere”, “leave-no-trace” solution is an ecologically friendly disposable mold. Each EcoMOLD will produce up to 5 shelters or one-room homes. Kits of 5, known as the EcoVillage, are available in a standard 10’x10’ size.
The workhorse of the IADDIC iMOLD family is the DuraMOLD. This micro-factory/micro-business solution is made of durable materials that can produce up to 1000 iHouse units. Each DuraMOLD is a simple panelized construction; making it easy to take directly to the job site or to set up in a centralized location. A hammer is the only tool needed to assemble this mold which is available in a wide variety of sizes and roof styles.
When maximum output per day is needed for your projects we recommend the IndyMOLD, named both for the speed of production and the industrial strength nature of this product. The IndyMOLD is designed to make 1000’s of iHouse units, and with automated dispensing and material handling equipment, each mold can produce up to 10 units per day (8 hour shift).
Manual production is a highly desired method of manufacturing the IADDIC Shelter and Houses. Imagine a process so simple it can be taught to anyone in any language in less than 15 minutes. This basic process makes it possible to build shelters or houses in remote locations while employing local labor, thus boosting the economy and lives of third world countries.
Adding automation to your project will assist in delivering on larger volume projects with ever faster cycle times. Automated dispensing equipment is at the heart of this process and is usually mounted on mobile equipment like a trailer to complement your on site operations. IADDIC also has the ability to adjust the chemistry of SIH to speed up both expansion and cure time.
IADDIC offers its own line of windows, doors, vents, shutters, and electrical systems. These product options are specifically designed to meet the price and durability characteristics of the developing world. IADDIC will also take on custom mold projects including panelized systems (the iPanel) to support free standing walls, parapet walls or other architectural features.
