Designing Stone Homes: Resilience in Bush Fire, Seismic Activity and Extreme Weather Events

Deciding on which structure to build and out of which construction materials is always a finely-strung operation. When designing a new build house or considering reconstructive works to existing aged and dated structures, the best materials need to be sort in priority of efficiency and functionality. Now double the workload if you are looking to build in a Bush Fire Zone.

Differing products and designs on the market at present offer kit homes or what we call “flat-pack” options. The Stone Blue Homes cladding system is anything but. We custom design to cater for your location, factoring in any unfavourable physical conditions such as earthquakes and extreme weather events such as high wind, hurricane or cyclones.

In conjunction with new builds, Stone Blue Homes offers remedial solutions by way of our reinforcement systems in order to strengthen and revamp existing house structures.

This means that any house can be clad in our stone; firerating, weatherproofing, reinstating existing homes irrespective of locale.

Our structural cladding system that is fabricated from Australian Steel, will also allow for any wall covering internally including the utilisation of our sleek natural stone, inside, as well as out.
