MCG Integrated Building Systems is an all Canadian company. The principals of MCG Construction have joined forces with a Canadian based design group who have developed a unique integrated wall system that provides contractors and end-user clients with a revolutionary approach to construction.

Strongwall Integrated Building System™, a complete wall system developed using new patented production processes, new architectural techniques and proprietary material compounds.

The outer panels, or face plates are produced using a proprietary mixture of high-grade cement and polystyrene foam beads (“cells”), re-bar and fiber glass meshing. The result is an exceptionally light-weight, incredibly strong, fully customizable construction system that is easy to transport,store and erect.

Applicable to a broad range of commercial and residential applications, the Strongwall Integrated Building System™ eliminates the need for framing,insulating, and dry-walling. As a totally integrated building system,Strongwall integrates all of the necessary infrastructure right into the exterior and interior walls themselves.By vertically integrating conduits into the panels, the time required for installing utilities (i.e. electrical, plumbing, fibre, cable etc.), is greatly reduced saving construction time and dramatically reducing labour costs.Strongwall panels support isolated suspension loads exceeding 47 kilograms,well over 100 pounds per wall-screw/nail.In addition, no additional interior plastering required. When delivered to your construction site, you are ready to build your completely integrated system. Clearly, the Strongwall Integrated Building System™ is simply *NOT *another form of prefabricated concrete slab construction*.*

Joining panels by use of tongue and groove construction strengthens the structure between the panel and its connected beams and columns. The groups of panels are assembled using polyethylene base cement or an epoxy compound. Given that the panels are extremely light, a non-engineering panel-installing worker can install more than 30 square meters of wall per day.

Strongwall Integrated Building System™ has virtually universal building applications:

Industrial Construction: Warehouses, manufacturing plants, storage facilities...

Institutional Construction: Schools, hospitals, colleges, universities, government facilities...

Commercial Construction: Banks, restaurants, shopping malls, office buildings..

Infrastructure Construction: Highway and urban sound barriers, public transit systems...

Residential Construction: Single dwellings, semi-detached, towns, condominiums, garages...

This building system has been rigorously tested to meet and surpass all North American and International materials evaluations and construction standards.Rigorously tested by the North American materials evaluation authority Intertek USA, this building system meets all contemporary building and construction standards established by ASTM International (American Society for Testing and Materials), one of the world's most trusted standards development organizations.

TASTM E119: Temperature 1,700 degrees Celsius | Duration: 3 hours Exposure to high-pressure water immediately following prolonged fire exposure.Evaluation: Intertek ETL SEMKO Rated "Class A" under certified tests of 1,700 degrees Celsius or 3,092 degrees Fahrenheit.Tests conducted over 3 hours of exposure per side.Registered marginal temperature change on opposing surfaces.Further, when fire rated testing was done, there were no toxic gases emitted.

Strongwall panel composites effectively resist both moisture penetration and the formation of surface condensates common under the most humid conditions. Even without watertight coatings, the panel composites effectively resist both moisture penetration and the formation of surface condensates common under the most humid conditions.Therefore, the Strongwall Integrated Building System™ is highly resistant to mould.ASTM E96: Standard test methods for water vapor transmission of materials.Evaluation: Intertek ETL SEMKO Registered no detectable moisture penetration through composite.

The insulation rating for both severe cold and hot conditions has demonstrated the wall system reduces overall energy consumption. Excellent heat insulation gives advantages of energy savings.Demonstrated to be Thermal Non-Conduction ASTM C177: Evaluates thermal conductivity (insulative properties).Evaluation: Intertek ETL SEMKO Registered low thermal conductivity (high insulation values).

The Strongwall Integrated Building System™ provides Optimum Vibration Dampening due to the cellular polystyrene and cement composite structure.It demonstrates high resistance to vibration-generated deformation.The sound insulation of 75mm thick panel is 46 db and 50 db for 100 mm thickness.The result is a safer, more sound-resistant interior. Sound deadening is exceptional for libraries, offices, hotels etc.

The Strongwall Integrated Building System™ is Eco and forest friendly using 100 percent recyclable, non-hazardous materials, time-tested materials.Given the installation-ready nature of the system, there is far less building site rubbish and environmental impact.Further, the energy-saving capacity of the product reduces energy use and is therefore climate-friendly.

MCG Strongwall Integrated Building System™ submitted the wall panels for independent testing in Canada and the lead and asbestos results showed an absence of both substances.

As part of any sale, MCG Building Systems Inc. provides onsite consulting/installation supports to its clients at no extra cost.Given the unique nature of the product, the technology involved and the nuisances of installation, we believe that this support for clients is essential for three fundamental reasons:

1. It is critical that you, the contractor/installer, feel totally comfortable and confident in the construction of your facility.

2. As with any new business experience, the in-service training of staff is essential to the short and long-term effectiveness of any undertaking.

3. Our team of experts will provide your team with expertise and first-hand experience.

The Strongwall Integrated Building System™ has contracted with MCG to be the former's service provider and consulting engineer to our clients.The end result experience and building construction can only be enhanced by such supports.
