MONOLITH SYSTEMS – Low-maintenance, high-performance concrete custom homes built to last generations.

MONOLITH’S
Tilt-Up CIP
SYSTEM

Tilt-up construction is a proven system in which insulated concrete wall panels are cast on-site and ‘tilted’ into position using cranes. This results in a complete concrete wall system with interior and exterior concrete for the wall which replaces conventional wall construction from drywall to exterior cladding such as precast and concrete blocks, and is more cost-effective as well.

THE BENEFITS OF CONCRETE HOMES

Key components to achieving a healthy comfortable home comes down to simple conscious choices to build smarter. There are many ideals about the CIP system that tick the box for building in the Pacific North West. One of our favourites is continuous insulation wrap with no thermal bridging. With the concrete being on the interior side of the insulation this provides thermal mass which helps temperature fluctuations and means you maintain a consistent temperature in your home year round with minimal energy demands. A high performance ventilation system provides a constant supply of fresh air through your home which equals healthy air which means a healthier you. This is why we believe in the CIP system so much because in today’s world being healthy and keeping your family safe are top priorities.

Low Maintenance Icon

Low-Maintenance

Concrete Insulated Panel (CIP) structures cost less to maintain due to the resilience of sealed concrete on the interior and exterior of your home. Less deterioration makes it a great return on investment.

Fully Customizable Icon

Fully Customizable

Each panel is custom-poured, making the finish fully customizable–from glassy smoothness to graphic art inlay, the sky’s the limit.

Fire Resistant Icon

Fire Resistant

Concrete is a non-combustible material which delivers a high level of resistance to flame spread and it provides exceptional fire ratings. Concrete provides the highest fire resistance of typical building materials. 6″ give 4hrs if exposed from both sides.

Sound Dampening Icon

Sound Dampening

The high density of concrete helps reduce noise….a lot, making it a quieter and more enjoyable home to live in. Which means you can sleep through the sirens and city noises.

Earthquake Resistant Icon

Earthquake Resistant

When designed correctly, the ductility of concrete allows for a high seismic rating taking that uneasy feeling out of the equation.

Wind Resistant Icon

Wind Resistant

Windstorms and waves have met their match. Concrete is strong and dampens sound which means wind and falling debris won’t be a cause for alarm. Begin enjoying storm watching.
