The $11 trillion construction market is ripe for disruption. Over the last 25 years, nearly every industry has doubled productivity, while construction productivity has decreased. Meanwhile, 1 billion new low income homes are needed.
Traditional construction is complex, expensive, and slow. There are many parts and steps, with multiple exterior and interior layers. These components and layers are inefficient and labor intensive.
Simplify with the Vantem Building System
Vantem has developed a revolutionary building system that simplifies construction, reducing costs and delivery times. Our innovation is a light structural panel, with a proprietary cement face, that is 25% less expensive, reduces construction time by 80%, and is 5x more energy efficient than traditional building products.
These weather-resistant, finish-ready panels replace traditional construction. They eliminate complex and expensive cladding layers, and, due to their strength, no additional steel or concrete reinforcement is needed. With their high thermal efficiency, homes built with the Vantem system are more comfortable and less expensive to own and operate.
Watch a home installed in only 7 days with the Vantem System:
- Insulation included
- Electric and plumbing-ready
- No additional cladding layers needed
- Entire structure made with panels, with no additional structure required
It is typically up to 25% cheaper to build with the Vantem System than traditional methods and 60% less energy is needed to heat and cool buildings made with Vantem panels.
Ease and Speed of Construction
A Vantem home, office, or school can be completed in 80% less time than traditional methods.
More Energy Efficient
Vantem structures are up to 500% more thermally efficient, reducing energy consumption and making them more comfortable.
Vantem panels are formulated to be an extremely effective fire barrier. The facing does not conduct heat easily, nor does it contain ignitable material.
Termite and Mold Resistant
Our proprietary Vantem Cement Board does not contain materials with food values for insects or mold. This makes our panels ideal for wet and dry climates including tropical areas that pose notorious problems for alternative building materials.
The Vantem Building system is extremely versatile and can be used for a wide variety of building types, including high quality single-family homes, high-rises, public buildings, and social and mobile housing. It is based on Vantem’s proprietary panel and can be supplied as complete structure-kits, ready to erect.
Virtually any design, from modern to traditional can be constructed with our Vantem System. The system works well with most conventional finish materials including paint, stucco, ceramic, stone, and brick veneers.
Vantem’s panels are ideal for interior and exterior walls of commercial buildings. They provide a flexible solution for possible rapid configuration, as well as effective fire barriers between commercial spaces.
Schools & Public Buildings
The speed and versatility of Vantem’s System makes it ideal for the construction of public buildings such as schools and clinics. Our system provides community and government stakeholders an option to deliver high quality public buildings in a fraction of the time achievable with traditional brick and mortar construction and at more attractive costs.
Mobile Temporary Housing
Vantem’s InteliCamp modules provide a competitive, high quality alternative for temporary living and workspaces. Our modules provide higher comfort and lower operating costs due to the superior thermal insulation of Vantem panels. Modules are delivered move-in-ready and can be configured in a multitude of sizes and layouts.
Success to Date
- Built a $24 million pipeline, winning 75% of bids
- Successfully constructed over 500 buildings.
- Established commercial coverage in Latin America and will soon establish coverage in the United States.
- Received building code approvals in Uruguay, Chile, Brazil, and Bolivia, and are in the process of approval in Colombia – Obtaining code approvals in each country is critical and involves a tremendous body of testing from independent labs. Vantem is one of a small group of companies able to meet these codes.
- Proven effectiveness in seismic and hurricane zones, successfully weathering category 4 and 5 hurricanes and earthquakes of up to 8.2 in magnitude.
Vantem is currently rolling out its cost-efficient, rapid building technology in South American countries, where traditional brick and concrete construction methods dominate and labor costs are relatively high, including Uruguay, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, and the Caribbean. We are also pursuing opportunities in the United States for large scale building projects.
In our target markets, we sell panels and kits to construction companies and aim to structure 50/50 joint ventures with strong local partners that bring “local know how and know who”. We carefully choose joint venture partners based on the strength of their relationships in the local community and business synergies.
Vantem has centralized production of our proprietary cement skin at our partner factory in China, ensuring consistency, quality, and control over the supply chain. Final assembly of the panels can be done at our factory in China or in our local markets, depending on cost considerations.
Vantem seeks to establish panel factories within local markets, ensuring rapid delivery and competitive costs. Vantem’s factories are automated with high output capacity. In addition, our factories can be mobile, transported from job site to job site, significantly reducing transportation costs from the factory to the construction site. By manufacturing components in factory settings, we are able to produce buildings year-around regardless of weather conditions. The controlled factory process further ensures quality and exacting standards. For the foreseeable future, we plan to continue to produce our proprietary cement skin in China and ship to our local factories.
Our target market is highly fragmented. We compete mainly with traditional materials. Other alternative construction methods require higher capex, are more expensive, and are not versatile.
Why Other Alternative Building Methods Can’t Compete with Vantem
- High capex
- Low versatility
- No insulation
- Needs more layers
- Very high capex
- Heavy equipment needed
- High logistics costs
- Needs some layers
- High capex
- Insulation question
- Needs added layers to complete building
