A house without nails: BONE structure launches first home in Ontario

TORONTO, Jan. 9, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Proudly launching its first building in Caledon, Ontario on January 30, 2014, BONE Structure's goal is to literally change the housing market, one light steel frame at a time. Quebec-based BONE Structure has developed and patented an international construction system that combines aesthetics, flexibility, efficiency, and respect for the environment. The BONE philosophy is one of assembly and technology rather than construction, structures can be put together in less than a week using only a drill. No nails, no cutting, no debris, and no waste.

Founded in 2005 by President Marc A. Bovet in Laval, Quebec, BONE Structure's innovative concept disrupts traditional construction methods across Canada and has attracted the attention of real estate developers around the world. "A BONE Structure may be assembled in as little as four days but the results are built to last generations," Bovet says, "Precision and speed do not need to compromise efficiency and originality." With a background in retail and advertising, Bovet was part of the management team at Bombardier, the global leader in aerospace and transportation manufacturing, for many years. His experience and observations led to the idea of applying the same technologies to home construction and BONE Structure was born.

From schematic design to construction, completion of a 3,000 square-foot home takes around 12-14 weeks. The BONE Structure technology was inspired from a combination of LEGO and Meccano - pieces are simply snapped together. The lightweight, recycled steel frame is more stable than a traditional wood frame, which enables homeowners a beautiful open-concept space without intermediate beams or load-bearing walls. Electrical, plumbing, heating and ventilation systems are easily connected thanks to precut openings acting as veritable "highways" within the structure.

Each custom, tailor-made building has a specific number of screws and parts, taking the guesswork out of ordering and eliminates unwanted budget increases. BONE Structure clients know exactly what they get and how much it costs. Not only is the end result aesthetically remarkable and sustainable, but the assembly process itself is efficient, economical and environmentally friendly.

There are currently more than 150 BONE Structure homes in Quebec and a few more across the country with options that currently include single-family dwellings, multiplexes, and light commercial jobs. BONE Structure is now expanding its network into Ontario and the rest of Canada, with growing interest in the U.S. and Europe. The structures can be 100% custom modified and reconfigured at any time. The proprietary Integrated Measuring System (IMS) allows homeowners the ability to literally reconfigure the living space at any time by clicking or unclicking the components to easily add windows, modifying exterior siding or move internal walls around.

With already three licensed manufacturing plants in Ontario and seven in Quebec, BONE Structure plans on adding an additional three in Alberta and two more in British Columbia in the next year. Combine this with an ever-expanding network of authorized builders and BONE Structure is destined to achieve its goal of becoming a 'household' name in the construction industry.
