"New Nglepen" was built after Yogyakarta suffered a massive earthquake in 2016. This video shows another way dome homes are eco-friendly and perfect for places with extreme weather. We constructed a temperature experiment to show how narually insulated domes are!
We are proud to be in the 2017 DIHAD Global Aid Directory!
HDomes builds EcoShells and monolithic Domes. We supply the training, equipment and techniques to aid in disaster recovery and reconstruction as well as large scale urban redevelopment. Our EcoShell construction system allows for the rapid construction of a large number of inexpensive houses and community buildings. Our structures are built using local labor and materials, the are earthquake/hurricane/fire proof with a very long life expectancy and low on-going maintenance requirements. EcoShells provide the local community with income, skills and the ability to literally rebuild their lives.
Our rapidly build community buildings can be used as schools, clinics, police stations, places of worship and food storage facilities. By utilizing the local workforce, we give the end users a stake in the project and ownership in the finished product. We have worked for WANGO (World Association of NGO's) on a large scale reconstruction project in Indonesia and for Haiti H.E.R>O. on a large orphanage project in Haiti amongst many others. We have build climate controlled buildings, residential and commercial, as well as large Tornado shelters for FEMA in the US and around the world. FEMA rate our buildings as "near absolute protection."
