Design and Construction of a Sustainable Building
with structural and Emergency Specifications,
to satisfy the needs of Human Beings living in High Risk environments.
We've been learning for centuries, doing research and testing our findings, to understand the structure and energy transformations of the universe; which includes earth, human life, biodiversity and ecosystems. However, to be able to understand and manage those, it is a long way ahead still to come.
Looking for excellence, with perseverance and using our talents, will be our way to conceptualize a Sustainable approach as in our quote:
"Our Universe is
an ecological sustainable environment,
perfectly balanced, as Eden,
an eternal paradise,
such that allow life to exist"
A risk that we cannot predict or plan with due anticipation, is called "an unforeseeable risk" (earthquakes, climate change, electrical, wind and water storms, incidents/accidents, catastrophic illnesses, volcano eruptions, meteorites, sink holes,underground buried historical structures, fires...)
Though technology becomes an important factor and support for our dreams and ideas as steps to human progress, the unforeseeable drive us to something that we cannot see or feel with our senses; but is a form of energy that makes us think "where there is a will, there is a way"; a will, or main goal, is to control what we now call “unforeseeable risks”.
Sustainability may be the answer to manage the unforeseeable risks; however the fact that we are speeding to achieve "money oriented" instead of "performance oriented" make us displace the good ideas; leaving just "profitable ideas" (in terms of money oriented), available to be completed.
Profits in terms of Money oriented are focused in "amount of money, wealth and power obtained..."
However, Money was created to facilitate a fair interchange (barter) of products and services.
Nowadays, it is used just to measure and accumulate wealth and power; attracting negative goals, low standards and low quality products, non sustainable products, greediness and selfishness...
Therefore, profits are redefined best, in terms of Performance... as follows.
Performance oriented, instead, is focus in profits as:
"Quality of Life, Excellence, in Peace and Happiness"
When we as human beings do positive thinking and live with clear and positive objectives, we are looking forward to sharing and get the best Quality of Life (in terms of LOVE), Excellence, in Peace and Happiness.
In other words we change our personal goals of “making money or material well-being”, for something more humanized as motivation to excel in peace and happiness, achieving a better Quality of life for us and our future generations.”
Excellence can be achieve by "thinking positive and sustainable"
...following is a sustainable experience worth to apply in our life
One of the biggest copper mines in the world, in the early 80'ties, obtained the world wide Safety reward, to increase 3 times the actual production of a better quality product, overcome previous year of million dollars losses, improve efficiency in the whole company and obtained great improvement in relationship, stability, happiness and motivation to excel, at all levels, of human resources (20,000 /positions/people).
the safety policies of thinking positive, not looking for guilty, emergency plan and rehabilitation, lead to a full evaluation of losses by reviewing systems, methodology and procedures, which motivated human resources to excel.

as a successful project, all countries in the world share the benefits from those products and resources.
Building sustainable houses, since 1997, with a sustainable design, sustainable materials and a working team passionate for the innovation, allow us to start using sustainable and renewable energy devices, which was a great challenge to the uncertain, motivation to creativity and performance.
New and not regulated by standards or law, but just by passion, intellect and creativity of a sustainable idea, we worked with efficiency, integrity and diligence, starting research and building prototypes of unique, distinctive, well sustainable design and constructed with materials such, that helps to keep our environment as Eden.
The houses built has been able to survive not only the several 6 to 8.9 grades earthquakes (Richter scale), strong winds, storms, humid and acid coastal weather, internal self extinguished fires; but also, saving energy it pays itself in the long run, preserve the environment, sustainable recycling at end of lifespan and allow life with no fear, in those risky areas for at least 100 years.
The main goal of our future generations will be relaxed and directed to improve their lives at home, work, social and entertainment with no worries about accommodation.
Based on these experiences, we are now working in a Sustainable project that focuses our mind in achieving a building that: become an icon in sustainable development, protect life in case of an event deploying an unforeseeable fire or earthquake, it will have an easy way to be refurbished during lifetime, and recycle the remains at the end of the life-span.
... a plethora of beautiful and happy memories.
... building sustainable is the main contributor to a sustainable life, a "good Quality of Life, Excellence, in Peace and Happiness"
