Melbourne, FL (PRWEB) June 23, 2008
Alternative Construction Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: ACCY) announced today that it has registered its state-of-the-art ACTech® Panel System and several ancillary services in twenty-five states. Individual states have registration requirements and procurement policies that dictate how the private sector can sell to them. Many states even set specifications for certain products, materials and services. Currently, twenty-four of these states have green building mandates which request or require green building materials when constructing government funded buildings. Alternative Construction Technologies has now applied for registration in all twenty-four green building mandate states, which will allow the company to sell the ACTech Panel System to state and municipal governments.
"Due to the groundswell of awareness and demand for alternative building materials and CleanTech from the private sector, we believe that it is prudent to pursue opportunities at the state and local level, as our Systems allow them to comply with many of the emerging "green" mandates," said A.J. Francel, the company's COO. "Our goal is to expand awareness of our revolutionary construction materials and target these markets making our product available as broadly as possible. There are many features and benefits in our galvanized, structural steel insulated panel system - the ACTech® Panel System, and it represents an ideal solution for many of the challenges facing consumers and policymakers. One specific challenge: the rapidly rising cost of energy. Our product could be used by these entities to provide affordable housing, enhance disaster relief efforts, support school systems and be utilized for other state and local construction activities while providing safe and economical occupancy. State and Federal governments should consider using it as an improvement on conventional construction materials."
Alternative Construction Technologies, Inc. (ACT) possesses a unique and patented construction technology called the ACTech® Panel System that is used in the design and erection of state-of-the-art "green" buildings in commercial, residential, industrial, military, pre-engineered and modular building applications, as well as patented safe rooms. Generically known as structural insulated panel (SIP), ACT's revolutionary and efficient construction solution utilizes an inherently better galvanized steel "skin" SIP system to complete energy efficient, stronger, safer, faster, Class-1 fire rated and more economical structure than conventional wood and brick based building products. The patented ACTech® Panel is environmentally-friendly and easier to construct with - not only saving labor cost and cutting construction time, but also reducing recurring monthly heating and cooling energy bills consistently by 30-50% and often as much as 70%.
Most importantly, the ACTech® Panel possesses disaster resistant strength and has tested stronger than conventional concrete block or wood frame construction. In combination with FEMA compliant hurricane projectile tests, the ACTech® Panel continues to meet the most stringent wind, projectile and uplift codes in the nation levied by the 2006 Florida Building Code. The ACTech® Panel System offers builders and consumers many competitive and comparative advantages of use due to its wide range of attributes. As this new construction technology gains awareness, or hurricane and tornado-prone states establish new building codes and rebuild from recent weather disasters, ACT believes its' products will be in greater demand. ACT has recently added ancillary services including design, consulting, and construction through its various general contracting subsidiaries. When specifying the ACTech® Panel System as the "green" structural building material into any construction application, it is most probable that a LEED (Leadership in Energy Efficient Design) or Energy Star rating will be readily achieved.
