GIS HOMES ARE BUILT TO LAST, EVEN ON DIFFICULT SLOPES

Our Design-Build homes are the embodiment of efficient, structurally- sound, Green-integrated living. Our team immerses itself in each phase: selecting a site; environmental considerations and possibilities; development, drawing plans; and so on throughout the entire build process. We do all this by applying our core knowledge of building methods to transform an idea into a reality.

While other structures might tend to slip, slide, or crack, our advanced methods make it possible to build on slopes and soils – and maintain the integrity of the foundation.

BUILD
WHERE
YOU WANT

The GIS building methods rely on an underlying innovative construction process rather than a single, repeated plan.

Where traditional building methods fail over time, GIS structures stand securely in place. Our novel building solutions integrate the visible terrain with the unseen bedrock beneath.

Our overall strategy requires that we create flat ground as necessary, integrating the build with the surrounding natural environment. The foundation locks into the bedrock from multiple directions, supporting the structure against upward and downward shifts while also bracing against slides.

The foundation pilings can be both vertical and slanted to accommodate the final loading conditions. Once the foundation is secure, the structure lays on the slope as a base for the portion that rests on the slope.
