Housing Unit Prototype

The first Tilt-Up project in Jordan, a country with a need for modern, safe and affordable construction techniques, this building serves as a housing model for the military and government agencies.

The building's design replaces traditional masonry construction with insulated Tilt-Up wall and ceiling panels. The contractor, working through the challenging language barrier, provided supervision and training to local semi-skilled carpenters and laborers, teaching them how to place and finish concrete, form and place panels, and erect and brace the final product.

The model has already received considerable attention from high-ranking government officials in Jordan, including the Canadian Ambassador.
