Northstar has developed patent pending 100% Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Composite Building Systems and Methods to provide financial savings and environmentally sustainable benefits for the following market segments: Aerospace & Defense, Commercial, Industrial, Residential, Healthcare, Agriculture, and Energy.
We believe in producing innovative and affordable building solutions to achieve the highest level of sustainability. Our technology has shown that it can outlast the traditional building materials, thereby, lowering construction and maintenance costs over the life of the structure.
Northstar building systems are designed and engineered with advanced composite materials, which are made up of high-performance resin systems and high-strength, high-stiffness glass fiber reinforcement that allow us the flexibility to meet a wide variety of project specifications.
Our patent pending Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Composite Building Systems and Methods provide financial savings and are 75% lighter than structural steel, stronger than structural steel on a pound-for-pound basis, reducing structural requirements, foundations, installation equipment and personnel.
Northstar structures are produced in factories. This increases quality control while minimizing construction timelines.
- Advanced 100% FRP building systems and methods
- In negotiations on a $2.2 billion construction project as an exclusive vendor partnership using Northstar FRP building systems and methods .
- Management team and Company Advisors with experience in Fortune 500 companies, aerospace / defense, patent development, management, litigation, and composite home / commercial construction.

- Over $11 million invested in the development of our technology
With all the natural disasters in the world today, a new building material using reimagined construction systems and methods must be identified to give us a fighting chance in protecting our loved ones and assets.
Every year, thousands of homes and commercial buildings are destroyed by catastrophic forces of nature.
Historic flooding, massive Category 5 hurricanes, and the West Coast fires alone caused over $136 billion in losses combined in 2018 and 2019, and the highest cost ever from weather related disasters occurred in 2017 with over $306.2 billion in losses.
As a result of these annual weather related disasters, FEMA’s budgets have been increasingly strained, making it abundantly clear they are not positioned to rebuild America year after year. Homeowners and commercial property owners are also at financial risk for even the most basic coverage of damage, as insurance rates continue to skyrocket.
Homes and commercial buildings are currently made with wood, steel, and concrete, materials that are not equipped to survive natural disasters, degradation and natural processes over time, and yet, the construction industry has failed to find more resilient building materials.
Embrace change and experience the evolution of the construction industry with advanced building performance, durable resilience, and environmental sustainability.
Northstar Technologies has overcome the most significant barriers that have prevented the construction industry from changing its traditional ways. Our fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composite technology provides innovative solutions to transition to lighter, stronger, and more sustainable materials, all with a lower carbon footprint.
Combined with our patent pending systems and methods approach, private and commercial stakeholders can see immediate benefits when using our technology.
Northstar building systems and methods have shown to unlock several benefits compared to traditional building materials (concrete, steel, aluminum, and timber). FRP can be the solution of choice for a broad range of structures including military assets, highly specialized commercial applications, customized architectural curtain walls and the need to meet stringent LEED building requirements.
We provide 100% FRP composite building systems and methods approved for residential, commercial, and industrial construction and has shown the lowest total emissions for resilient construction technologies today.
We believe no other competing technologies can meet the environmental goal of the LEED Zero Carbon standards. Our technology contributes to this environmental achievement with no increase or additional upfront construction costs while lowering the total cost of ownership (TCO).
We believe FRP materials combined with our building systems and methods will impact the global construction industry in the same way the iPhone impacted the global mobile phone industry in 2007.
Each Northstar structure is designed to meet the following standards:
- Florida High Velocity Hurricane Zone approved for Exposure “D”
- F4 tornado with 250 mph impact rating
- UL Ballistic Level 1 rated - ability to increase to UL Level 8 if needed
- Class A 30-minute extended fire protection - up to 2 hours if needed
- Prevents progressive collapse for Seismic regions
- Lightest weight building system (>75% lighter than steel)
- Non-corrosive, chemical and rot resistant
- Water and air impervious structural system and building envelope
- Ultra energy efficient for off-grid operation
- 50 Year Structural Warranty
- Insurance rated “Superior Construction”
Northstar plans to sell through a global network of product dealers as our main source of revenue. We plan to charge the product dealers a yearly maintenance fee and add a markup on top of Cost of Goods Sold (COGS). We plan to license our IP to specialty manufacturers who use Northstar building system components and methods to manufacture their own products.
Another planned source of revenue should come from yearly licensing fees and markups on Northstar raw materials to Northstar IP Licensees.
Northstar has patent pending systems and methods needed for construction using 100% fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composite building materials, thus driving revenue and profit from licensing agreements with selected commercial and residential builders and manufacturers of specialty structures.
In addition, we are actively pursuing opportunities with construction industry companies that currently use traditional building materials, including mobile structures, prefab, commercial, industrial, aerospace and defense, energy, agriculture, and healthcare builders.
The composite / Exterior insulation finishing system (EIFS) market is valued roughly at 54.86 billion in 2017 and is expected to grow to 108.11 billion by 2023.
Our markets consist of both US and International home and commercial builders desiring composite building materials that can withstand 250 mph winds and fire resistance.
Experts estimate that the Architectural Claddings Systems market size by 2026 will be $152 billion, growing at 12.14% CAGR.
Northstar offers better construction technology with better results, at the competitor’s installation price, protected by patented technology, we capture up to 100% of the market share. Our materials allow the builder to construct a project using less manpower while reducing the time necessary to complete the buildout.
In addition, due to our lightweight, high strength materials, every market can benefit from our technology. This results in all stakeholders benefiting from this new application with a finished product that costs less and lasts longer.
Further opportunities exist in all markets that are currently relying on traditional building materials.
With Northstar 100% FRP systems and methods we aim to provide for the world a new and promising building technology that inspires a designers imagination.
Our pending patents give us confidence that Northstar is the only company using 100% FRP composite material for home and commercial building applications. Because of this patent pending process, we are creating a new marketplace consisting of 100% FRP structures assisting architects and builders to obtain LEED Platinum and LEED Zero certifications for homes / commercial buildings constructed with our materials.
Our closest competitors use a mixed material of wood, steel, and composite, but they are unable to offer a 100% FRP building systems and a cost effective solution providing 250 mph impact rating with fire resistance and small-arms ballistic protections that are standard with our building systems.
- We have built an amazing management team with experience in Fortune 500 companies, aerospace / defense, patent development, management, litigation, and composite home / commercial construction. Bringing these parties together affords Northstar the ability to grow quickly, but wisely.
