U-Form® Technology offers a completely new approach to building construction. No load-bearing masonry… no conventional, independent, steel or reinforced concrete column and beam framing systems. Instead, one simple step operation creates both the formwork and a unique, integrated, poured-in-place, structural concrete grid frame, and the total permanent, pre-veneered walls. The building goes up quickly, in record time.

U-Form® Erection Procedure

Insulation and vapor barriers in the U-Forms provide an ideal “autoclave” environment for curing the reinforced concrete such that concrete poured one afternoon is capable of accepting floor and/or roof loads the following morning i.e., design strength can reach bearing capacity within 24 hours.

UL fire tests exceed 4 hour ratings!

Energy savings of 50% or more as confirmed by the US Dept of Energy, Detroit Edison Company, and Honeywell Corporation.

Structural capacity confirmed by independent tests designed and supervised by Lev Zetlin, Ph. D., P.D. F.A.S.C.E, internationally renowned structural engineer and consultant.
