CARBON ARCHITECTURE

INTRODUCING LUMECAST®

Transitioning to Carbon-zero construction is now a necessity.

MIRRECO’s CAST® technology and manufacture of next generation building materials have the potential to revolutionise construction industries around the world. With innovative, fast-turnaround green buildings, using renewable, environmentally-friendly hemp-based materials which also store CO2.

Mitigate current (and future) impacts of climate change, generated by housing, buildings and infrastructure

It is no longer just acceptable to simply design a building with minimal impact on our environment, during its life. Deeper consideration of the impact during the manufacture of these materials, incl. assembly methods to construct that building. Extending to how built-in systems are employed/ managed (acceptable performance levels too.)

LUMECAST® provides state of the art carbon architecture for 2 people. Designed for modern living, energy-conscious, sustainable buildings created from natural materials; with a significantly-reduced carbon footprint. Wall panels formed from hemp biomass that are high-performance and provide a non-structural, thermal barrier. 

In addition, in a manufacturing process conceived and pioneered by MIRRECO™ LUMECAST® Carbon Architecture will use and store industrial CO2 in its panels whereby the carbon footprint of LUMECAST® buildings is further reduced.  

Application of exciting glazing technologies, developed by West Australia’s own ClearVue Technologies, add yet another innovation dimension to MIRRECO’s LUMECAST® dwellings – CAST® wall panels contain clear, energy-charging glass which can transform UV light into electricity, for uptake by its occupants.

Faster, greener and affordable housing solutions:  

  • Emergency accommodation
  • Mining Camps
  • Regional Communities 

Other products produced (without altering the manufacturing processes) for:

  • Commercial Buildings
  • Acoustic Roadside Panels
  • Industrial Pallets
  • Bricks, blocks, walling and paving
  • Sheet materials, cladding and lining
  • Street Furniture.

“Carbon Architecture endeavours to be more responsive than reactive in its approach, sympathetic and co-operative with its environment. A building needs to form a relationship with the site and not dictate its terms of existence. It is not only acceptable to design a building which performs to a level required to minimise impact on the environment during its built life, but to consider the impact during the manufacturing and installation of materials to complete. Emission heavy built-in combative environment adjusting systems are not the solution to poor climatic considerations or lazy design.”
