Fort Myers Model Home
This concrete home was gutted by fire. The owner is rebuilding using the am-cor System to encase the surviving concrete block exterior walls, and to add an upper story master suite and library. Garden walls, pool arcade, and a guest house are constructed of the am-cor System.
The am-cor ExoStructure which wraps around the existing block walls, shields the masonry from changes in exterior temperature turning the entire masonry structure into a heat sink. This causes a fly wheel effect on interior temperature, evening out variations and lowering fuel consumption.
The am-cor Ferrocement frame coated with its amcorite structural Portland cement skin creates a unibody shell around the entire building for resistance to hurricanes. Being made entirely of galvanized steel and cement, the new am-cor building shell is fire and termite resistant.
