CloudHauz Dwellings are Hazard-Resistant, Emergency-Grade and Re-Usable Up to 300 Years
MORAGA, Calif., March 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- CloudHauz™ LLC, a provider of disaster-resistant dwellings, announced today it has formally launched the company months earlier than anticipated in order to address the emergency dwelling situation worsened by COVID-19 outbreak.
The company in conjunction with strategic partners, have queued up its East Coast manufacturing facility and are ready to accept architectural drawings and begin mass producing structures immediately. CloudHauz will begin manufacturing any and all types of structures needed in this crisis including: homeless shelters, ADU (accessory dwelling units), medical facilities, warehouses and more. The factory is exempt from the quarantine, and will remain open for business as usual, as this manufacturing is considered essential for building emergency dwellings to support the crisis.
CloudHauz uses a patented steel-composite construction technology that has been used around the world for over 30 years and is currently in 70,000 dwellings in 28 countries. Its steel and composite structures are more durable than wood which doesn't stand up in fires, earthquakes, hurricanes and is prone to molds and dry rot. CloudHauz is launching the company based on a superior durable, construction technology to promote its ability to build fast, safe, long-lasting and eco-friendly dwellings that use less wood, which also reduces deforestation.
"CloudHauz dwellings will absolutely shelter us from the storm in these chaotic times," said Lisa Copass, CEO and Co-Founder of CloudHauz. "With CloudHauz we can build for the next disaster giving ourselves the best chance of survival."
"We're all in this together," said Chip MacDowell, COO and Co-Founder. "And CloudHauz is here and ready to help."
CloudHauz dwellings are remarkable in that they are: fire-resistant; earthquake-resistant (up to 9 on the Richter scale); hurricane resistant (winds up to 200 mph) and have high thermal values (R-59). Because CloudHauz uses wood-less structures (only steel and composite) there's no food source for mold, termites, fungus, dry rot or rodents to thrive on, thus destroy.
Fast and Easy Assembly:
The structure of a CloudHauz comes in pre-fabricated, lightweight panels which save an enormous amount of time in labor. The structures assemble in an inter-locking tongue and grove style and require two tools – an electric screw driver and hot knife/saw. The pre-fabricated panels reduce project completion time by 50%, reduces labor costs by 75% and cost of materials by 50%, compared to wood construction projects.
In addition to being Title 24-compliant and Net Zero-Approved, the structure of a CloudHauz meet certified building codes in the state of California and every state in the US. Other certifications include: HUD-approved and ASTM International-certified.
CloudHauz dwellings are extremely eco-friendly, made from recycled materials and are 100% recyclable. The structural materials are manufactured in an entirely green facility with no waste and no environmental pollution and does not produce off-gasses or toxins.
