Quick Assembly


LifeArk can be quickly assembled using 80% unskilled labor and standard tools, requiring one-fourth the total building time of traditional methods of construction. 

LifeArk Modules are designed for delivery via standard shipping methods.

 

Durable Material

LifeArk modules are made with high-density polyethylene (HDPE) filled with polyurethane foam which provides structural integrity and optimal thermal values (R-37), in addition to other inherent benefits of HDPE:

• HDPE is the most environmentally stable of all plastics, giving off no harmful fumes into the environment. 
• HDPE does not contain BPA, heavy metals or allergens.
• HDPE is a naturally germ-resistant material and offers zero corrosion, zero maintenance. 
• HDPE's viscous and elastic characteristics prevents deformation and formation of cracks. 
• HDPE is 100% recyclable and is one of the easiest plastic polymers to recycle.
• Products made from Type 2-HDPE recycled plastic are considered eco-friendly because they are made from post-consumer products and are recyclable at the end of their useful life. 

 

The life expectancy of the LifeArk modules are 20-30 years.

Safety Features

LifeArk modules are equipped with automatic sprinkler systems and egress windows to provide optimal fire safety in case of emergency.

LifeArk modules are currently undergoing stringent tests for fire safety.


Flexibility

LifeArk's modular design allows infinite configuration options to create a number of unique spaces, enabling the master planning of communities.

The modular design also allows LifeArk to be quickly deployed, relocated and reassembled as needed.


Localization

Designed to be contextualized to receiving communities, the vernacular of the LifeArk units can be fitted and modified using local materials, skills and labor.

LifeArk Amazon Typical Dwelling Model: Wooden components will utilize local material, skill and labor. 

LifeArk Module Panels can be easily modified and adapted to fit local context and need.


Optional Systems

LifeArk units can be fitted with a number of different systems capable of providing clean energy and water off-grid, allowing LifeArk to be assembled anywhere in the world.
