Sustainable, Practical Shelters
for the Great Outdoors
Your job is working in and managing some piece of the great outdoors. But you still need some creature comforts to get the job done. Like walls and a roof that provide meeting areas, work areas, even sleeping, cooking and relaxation quarters. You need one or more buildings which will go up quickly, provide a maximum amount of interior space with a minimum footprint, be comfortable despite challenging environmental conditions, require minimal maintenance, and fit within your budget both now and over time. If possible, you’d also like these buildings to be made from sustainable materials and offer both passive and active solar features, to minimize their impact on that very same great outdoors.
You might be thinking you’ll never find such a combination of perfect and practical. Think again.
Solargon structures deliver all this and more. Our structural insulated panels provide octagon-shaped structures which excel as both living and working quarters. Our high performance insulation delivers excellent heating and cooling performance, while our passive solar design lets in the sun at all the right times. So your utility bills will be surprisingly small. Our panel design allows our buildings to go up fast with minimal disturbance to the surrounding landscape. Many of our construction materials, including our insulation and OSB panels, are made from sustainable, renewable materials. And best of all, our structures are competitively priced.
Solargon – buildings inspired, supplied and endorsed by Mother Nature.
Your Solargon Will Provide:
Fast-fast, dried-in, enclosed structure. Less material loss through theft, and enjoy your dwelling much sooner.
Prebuilt wall and roof panels. The Solargon’s structural insulated panels (SIPs) ensure a fast, efficient building setup. The 20’ model can be erected in mere hours; the 30’ model can be erected in less than two days.
Professional engineer stamped plans to speed the building permit process.
Easy construction even in remote areas. The structural insulated panels (SIPs) can be loaded into standard family-sized trucks, and can be carried by two people. The patented connectors require only simple hand tools. No large equipment, no cranes, no power tools required.
Cost effective construction and operation. You’ll pay less labor to erect the structure and you’ll spend less over the lifetime of the structure, than you would for conventional buildings. This accomplishes financial responsibility.
Small environmental footprint. The structural insulated panels (SIPs) are composed of renewable materials, the building envelope ensures a good tight structure, the insulation ensures low utility bills, the layout ensures efficient air movement and the building design maximizes both passive and optional active solar gain.
Excellent indoor air quality. The panels’ natural materials, combined with the open layout, help prevent mold and mildew and minimize off gassing. The tight construction blocks drafts. No formaldehyde, asbestos, fiberglass, cellulose or VOC’s are used in any of the construction materials.
Custom layouts. Each floorplan is open, bright and well ventilated, aided by the custom aircraft-grade acrylic operable skylight. Your dream floorplan is possible because the walls and roof form a structurally monolithic, load bearing shell. Interior walls are not required, thus room arrangement is completely flexible. The 30’ model has sufficient interior height for a loft, thus increasing the available square footage.
Quality materials and methods of construction. All materials meet or exceed standard residential requirements. The Solargon design has an ASTM class 1 fire resistant rating and a FEMA class 4 flood resistant material rating. The Solargon design was winner of the EPA’s 2004 stratospheric ozone and climate protection awards, and meets or exceeds LEED standards.
Easy siting for the best views. The Solargon’s compact footprint provides the maximum amount of interior square footage with a minimum footprint. The octagonal shape allows for additional windows to be placed in any wall to take in attractive views in any direction.
Solar and green building efficiencies. Passive solar design and open span interior space ensures good solar gain and efficient heating and cooling. The structural insulated panels (SIPs) are built with renewable, natural materials and patented connectors wherever possible, ensuring fast erection time, airtight construction, and minimal heating and cooling requirements.
Simplified electrical installation. Each Solargon arrives at your site with electrical chases embedded in the walls and ready for final wiring installations. Those installations are much faster than in conventional buildings.
Aircraft-grade acrylic operable skylight. Our large, centered skylight lends lighting and airflow options to your layout which conventional skylights can’t match.
Competively priced. The cost of our high quality construction materials is more than offset by the rapid erection time and minimized utilities.
