How it Works

RSG 3-D Certified Contractor

We are certified to build concrete homes and commercial buildings using the RSG 3-D panel system.

This state-of-the-art concrete construction system is built to last for generations — able to withstand the elements.

Fire resistant (Class-A rated) and earthquake resistant, our use of RSG 3-D for concrete construction projects is ideal for the environmental complexities of building in California and beyond.

  1. Set the RSG 3-D panels on the foundation according to the construction plans.  
  2. Rough in your plumbing, electrical and HVAC
  3. Spray exterior concrete 
  4. Spray interior concrete
  5. Install windows and doors
  6. Stucco exterior
  7. Finish interior

Wood vs. Concrete

Two key studies* have demonstrated that concrete is a competitive alternative to traditional wood-frame construction for both residential and multifamily dwellings. Both in terms of building costs and insurance, concrete is proving to be a more cost effective, reliable and preferred building material.

Benefits of Concrete Construction
There are several benefits of concrete over wood construction — the most valuable are:

  • Significantly less expensive to insure
  • Noncombustible; dramatically reduces issues related to fire hazards and the after effects of fire containment methods
  • Mold resistant
  • Minimal risk of fire threat/damage to concrete structures vs. wood
  • Durable construction; reduces threat of degradation over time
  • Moisture resistant; can be waterproofed at a molecular level using admixtures to create a water-repelling composition
  • Energy efficient; costs much less to heat and cool due to better insulation

More Affordable to Insure
Concrete construction reduces the cost of a builder’s risk insurance by up to 65% compared to wood structures. Concrete homes and structures cost less to insure because of its non-combustible composition and ability to withstand degradation over a structure’s lifespan.
