The Solace System

Accommodations | Community Buildings

 

 

Innovative, Adaptable and Permanent

Economical and sustainable, the Solace System offers an unparalleled building solution for a variety of applications. Mass timber interior structures are insulated and protected from external elements by a Sprung tensioned membrane envelope. This near airtight enclosure results in significant operational savings.

These components provide the structure with a high degree of strength and flexibility that can endure even the most extreme weather conditions and seismic activity.

Interior and exterior structures have indefinite life-spans making the Solace System a permanent and durable asset. All components are fully demountable and reconfigurable, allowing structures to be relocated and repurposed to meet any requirements.

Sustainability

Innovative and sustainable, Solace structures provide a host of benefits.

 

 

Economic

  • Lowest lifecycle cost when compared to conventional structures
  • Permanent buildings with a 50+ year life
  • Relocatable and re-usable for multiple purposes

 

Environmental 

  • Reduced footprint lessens the impact of development
  • Up to 50% less energy required to heat, cool and light than conventional buildings
  • Buildings are primarily comprised of renewable resources
  • Opportunities to incorporate renewable power for an off-the-grid facility

 

Social

  • Improved health and wellbeing of occupants
  • Workforce operations can be converted into valuable assets for nearby communities
  • Affordable community infrastructure closes the gap in quality of life between rural and urban areas

 

 

 

Repurposing Capability

Solace System Longhouse components are fully demountable for relocation and reconfiguration. This capability allows Industry to reconfigure workforce accommodations to meet other infrastructure requirements as the project transitions through phases. After project completion, the Solace System Longhouse can be repurposed for use by the local community. Recreation centres, medical facilities or schools, the Solace System Longhouse is a mechanism for communities to acquire valuable permanent assets. Largely paid for by project sponsors, communities can become more self-sufficient at minimal capital expense.
