Direct 2 The People is at the cutting edge of green tech where we deliver sustainable, mixeduse, closed-loop, agri-living communities to developing countries throughout the world.
Our housing communities will be net-zero carbon, passive homes using zero energy from the grid. Such buildings will be light on the land, replacing concrete foundations with composite ground screws.Not having to rely on the setting for the concrete, the ground screw can immediately be loaded with our fibre glass reinforced pultrusion (FRP) composite lightweight, high-strength frame.
The EEZI frame not only gives the structure the strength to withstand hurricanes, earthquakes and tornados but allows the fully complete modular floor, wall and roof to be inserted into the frame onsite. This eliminates the use of heavy equipment and cranes on site.
The EEZI hemp floor, wall and roof, all external and internal cladding, electrical wiring and conduits for fibre optic, television cables and airflow throughout the structure are assembled at the factory.
The factory-finished structure is inserted into the EEZI lightweight composite frame which adds extreme rigidity and strength to it. This frame is designed fit-for-purpose for such building for the specific site where it is constructed. The hemp walling system is a net-zero carbon modular walling system which meets the requirements set by the passive building standards.
The EEZI thermal modular alternative building system excels in its thermal and acoustic performances as well as fire rating. This walling system is alive, breathes and absorbs CO2 gas emissions over the entire life of such building. Hemp walling systems have been in existence for hundreds of years and have stood the test of time.
In addition to these achievements, the buildings are 100% airtight, thus ensuring that we eliminate any airflow containing water vapour which causes rot and mould.
This unique alternative building system achieves these characteristics as the system uses no traditional building elements. These are sand, stone, concrete, cement, bricks, blocks, steel, aluminium, wood, glass, wooden trusses, cement roof tiles and gypsum ceilings.
All modular separate toilets, showers, baths and vanity glass are delivered to site completed in their predetermined position in the building. Due to the factory finished floor, wall, roof and pods, a 65m² house can be completed in one day on site.
This ground-breaking alternative building system is combined with our Direct Art of Living model, which includes an economic methodology that can contribute to the communities’ wellbeing through the Direct 2 The People community way of life, allowing for the following
savings in capital and living costs:
• Capital cost of buildings reduced by 30%
• Energy and electrical cost reduced by 75%
• Water use reduced by 64%
The biggest saving will not only be the exclusion of rampant inflation but also in lowering the cost of living to between 40% and 60%. This community agri-living model is the future of smart living, where production takes place at the place of consumption by the local community resulting in food being produced “by the people for the people”
Direct 2 The People believes that the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) will see the uprising of the people, where the people’s voices will be heard.
Companies and shareholders polluting the planet will be judged by people rather than politics. Those on the list of polluters will be boycotted and immediately feel the financial losses of polluting.
We are now able to track all polluters in a real-time basis, making it possible to reveal this information to the discerning public so they can decide whether to support and purchase goods from polluters. Certification standards will regulate products and goods in terms of pollution.
For this very reason, Direct 2 The People is launching the EEZI thermal modular composite building system in Q1 of 2023.
