Honco strives to build sustainable constructions.  Honco technology is also distinguished by its energy performance and low operating cost, while blending with its environment:

It provides, in average:

  • Energy savings of approximately 15% on heating and air conditioning costs;
  • Energy savings of approximately 15% on lighting costs;
  • Steel made from 95% recycled steel;
  • Less construction waste.

Honco technology provides optimal thermal insulation efficiency obtained by a superior insulating method that virtually creates no thermal bridge and by a well ventilated attic space keeping the insulation permanently dry and totally efficient.

The energy performance of the building envelope is increased by the structural ceiling finish that reflects light and that emits three times less radiant heat than materials such as wood and paint.

HONCO makes every effort to incorporate eco-friendly practices into its day-to-day operations and to design energy efficient buildings that meet LEED® certification requirements.

 

In order to continuously improve our products, we have taken steps in collaboration with Vertima, a firm specializing in LEEDÒ certification, for the evaluation of our products to meet with requirements of LEEDÒ certification.

The structural ceiling, being integrated to the Honco structure, allows to separate the useable space from total construction volume.

Therefore, it significantly cuts operating costs to heat or to cool the building.

The structural ceiling of Honco structure is made from Galvalume steel finish that reflects light increasing the level of brightness in the building without requiring additional lighting fixtures.

The outstanding thermal insulation efficiency of the wall and roof in Honco structures leads to an unparalleled balance of high performance and high energy efficiency.

The well ventilated attic is a guarantee of thermal insulation efficiency keeping insulation material permanently dry.

The roof panels are made from Galvalume steel finish that deflects sun rays, reducing inside cooling costs.

The steel used in Honco building system contains up to 95% of recycled steel.

The building components are all fabricated ready for their installation thus reducing on site waste at a minimum level.
