ELFI’s Uniquely Integrative and Sustainable Products, Technologies, Systems and Manufacturing Processes
ELFI is not only unique with our current systemized and integrative technologies, products and manufacturing processes, but also incredibly unique in that technologies advance rapidly and ELFI’s integrate-ability will incorporate all building and energy advances, as well as, our unique approach to innovation and creativity for the creation of ELFI businesses across the United States and the World.
There are similar products and systems, but ELFI is unique and stands-alone. Our capabilities go FAR BEYOND basic ability to integrate other components, systems, and unlimited finishes…
Systemized and integrative scalability and adaptability for all structural and project parameters, ELFI Building Systems & Solutions is a Chicago-based manufacturing, engineering and consultative integrator of energy-efficient, environmentally friendly, climate-responsive, pre-fabricated and pre-engineered, wall and roofing systems that integrate and optimize every building initiative. Our systems combine structural, load-bearing steel framing and Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) foam insulation into one product. With energy-efficiency foremost, ELFI’s integrative component-based, system of products, methods and processes are state-of-the-art in the green-building construction market, and ELFI Systems are integratable with all efficiency-focused advanced technologies, products and systems.
Effectively utilizing the comprehensive capabilities, advantages and benefits of ELFI’s integrative technology, builders can construct ELFI component-centric buildings in one-third the time when compared with traditional construction methods. This results in significant on-site, time and cost savings (Rapid-build Technology equals Rapid-to-Occupancy (RTO), which equals faster ROI). Lightweight and easy to work with, our two main components, steel and EPS (combined), yield major benefits: Structural integrity, no termites, mold, mildew, or warping – and, there are no ozone-depleting chemicals – and, our systems facilitate superior Indoor Air Quality (IAQ). The ELFI exterior building envelope alone delivers annual energy savings of 40-60% over traditional construction materials and methods, and by implementing our advanced methods of integrating other features and products, this will culminate in even greater savings. ELFI’s exterior envelope, with its unmatched energy-efficiency ratings, has been successfully deployed for more than 15 years in retail stores, single and multi-family residences, commercial, governmental and specialty construction across the United States.
Full utilization of resources can include total system integration of green-centric technologies to yield further energy-efficiency of green-building structures. As one example, we integrate seamlessly with advanced, pV-low-voltage and energy storage systems, and other non-conventional energy technologies to deliver “zero-energy/off-grid” structures.
Proprietary, efficient, effective, and streamlined… Three-stage manufacturing, “fewer moving parts”, skilled and well-cross-trained-interchangeable shop floor employees, proprietary and precision engineering, planning, methods and integrate-ability beget an ELFI Technology that is cost-effective, efficient, universally integrative, easily scalable and adaptable, and predictive. Disruptive technology, whilst empowering our colleagues and workers, our strategic partners, our clients, and ultimately the people who reside and work within our structures… THIS is ELFI.
