Combining bioclimatic architecture, eco-materials and dry process, SMC2 is able to provide solutions adapted to all projects, regardless of their location and the climatic conditions prevailing there: Europe, Africa, America or even the French overseas departments and territories!

Materials that are easy to transport

SMC2 infrastructures are based on a design method known as “dry construction”, which involves the preparation of all the components used in the construction of the project (metal and glued laminated timber frames, timber frame panels, textile membranes) prior to the site. As these prepared components have to be transported to the construction site for assembly, they are optimised to reduce their energy consumption and transport costs. For this reason, SMC2 has its own production units and has succeeded in reducing the density of its construction materials.
SMC2 solutions are exported to Europe, America (North and South), Africa and Australia.

Solutions adapted to all types of climatic conditions

If SMC2 infrastructures can be exported to all continents, it is because they are based on the principle of bioclimatic architecture, which takes advantage of the conditions of a site to improve the comfort of its users, reduce its energy consumption and its operating costs.

Whether in wood or metal, SMC2 buildings are designed to withstand the sometimes extreme conditions of seismic, cyclonic or mountainous areas. Wood also provides effective thermal insulation while controlling the humidity of the premises. The textile membrane, used for the roof, offers protection against heat and blocks UV rays. It is also very resistant to marine environments (salty and humid air with a high rate of UV).

Finally, in tropical environments, natural ventilation is provided according to the principle of Creole houses in order to generate refreshing air flows without any energy consumption.
