Shown here is a new gymnasium for the Phoenix Christian Assembly Church which is wrapped in Diamondback Stucco Foamtm and Thermal Control Membranetm (TCM/4).  The attic has R30 cellulose covered by Thermal Control Membrane (TCM/6). This combination allowed the church to use only 10 tons of the 20 tons installed to cool this structure.

NOTE: You must downsize the HVAC at least 40% when using this construction detail when specifying Diamondback Stucco Foam and Thermal Control Membrane in the attic.










This 2200 sq foot desert home in a Phoenix suburb uses less than $234 per year for heating and cooling (without solar).  Our proprietary designs and systems integration allows an average of 92% of the energy used is done during less expensive off peak times.  This will insure you will have the most efficient, comfortable, safe (concrete walls), secure and healthy home from the ground up.  Consultations, plan reviews, complete design and plan service now available.  Call: 602-867-3176

This 2800sq foot Phoenix home not only had high energy bills but even at this cost per month the a/c units ran non stop and at the peak of the summer could not cool below 81F.  Hot rooms, high bills, blasts of hot air out of the ducts when the units started, dust problems, duct leaks are not problems, they are symptoms of existing problems.  We have turn key solutions to all of these problems.  Our video page has examples, click here.  It all starts with an $80 home inspection.  A BPI certified home inspector will evaluate your home, identify problems and write you a succinct proposal for the solutions.

This building was designed by Biltform Architecture.

Frank Luke Completed.  The most efficient multi-family building in Arizona.


This three story assisted care center is going to be comfortable and easy to cool due to the installation of Thermal Control Membrane and our new Diamondback Stucco Foam product on the walls and attic.  This combination effectively keeps heat from moving into or out of the building through the walls.  We used a similar system when we applied our technology to the most efficient home ever built on ABC's Extreme Makeover Home Edition.

The time has come to move quickly on making decisions to reduce our consumption of finite, fossil fuels, propagate renewable energy and nurture our planet.  All of us are caretakers and have a responsibility to make changes at every level and inculcate into our children and others, by example, a move in this direction. 

We must immediately address archaic building codes which are not climate specific and begin using available proven technologies as found on this site.  We need to move now to build more energy efficient, sustainable and comfortable homes and buildings.  Our proven products will help you meet these goals.  Before building, buying or remodeling, read this web site thoroughly and please be prepared to "think outside the box".
