Imagine If...

ALL HOUSES could be built in a way that...


  • Could last many lifetimes
  • Made modern Architecture easy
  • Needed very little energy to keep warm or cool
  • Was safe, healthy, non-toxic and comfortable to live in
  • Was resilient to nature, earthquakes, wind, floods and fires
  • Eliminated vulnerability to moisture, were durable, strong and solid
  • Increased industry capacity and efficiency for better housing affordability
  • Only used materials that are entirely inert, safe and recyclable, are responsibly sourced, and kept trees, forests, and their delicate ecosystems exactly where they are...


HOW could that be done...? THAT is exactly what we are working on...


A New Way of Thinking, Designing and Constructing...

...that enhances existing and new construction technologies to work in elegant ways never previously achieved...

Developing New Solutions, and Setting new benchmarks for future housing performance, Creating a New Disruptive Paradigm...

The SURI Project has been doing...
A lot of Research
A lot of trial and testing
A lot of specialised design thinking and problem-solving....


Using the Worlds Most Popular Building Material...

In ways that embody the latest science and technologies

In ways that can construct considerably better housing

In ways that work better with the natural environment

In ways that deliver on everything that green and sustainable building has always claimed to be about...

We are now transfering the Research into Reality...

Designing it.... Building it!



The SURI Project is moving toward its latest phase -

Building from our research, testing the theories and demonstrating a real alternative


The Sustainable Urban Resilience Initiative - SURI is a Design-Based Research & Development studio. The SURI Project is developing new ways to design and build the next-generation low-medium density urban residential environment with a range of innovative and optimised ICF and EPS formed Concrete construction solutions that will authentically deliver unmatched durability, performance, environmental quality and liveability standards.
