Polystyrene: Building & Alternative Building Technologies

Polystyrene walling is becoming more and more popular with engineers and architects.

They can be constructed much faster than masonry walls; as they are lighter than masonry construction and have excellent acoustic and thermal properties.
We also make polystyrene for all types of insulation.

These two houses have been built out of polystyrene wall and roof panels
