The DC Form system utilizes injected reusable plastic panels to realize formwork to build concrete slabs and walls fast and accurately.
The formwork process designed and developed by DC International is modular and consists of several components of varied sizes, making it possible to set up concrete buildings from one to four stories of almost any dimensions.
DC Building System
The DC Building System consists of PVC profiles made from recycled and/or new plastic that are assembled on site to create permanent formworks for the walls and roof. Concrete is pumped into the formworks to build essentially a reinforced concrete building. The PVC permanent formworks contribute to the structural resistance of the building. Since the cavities are perforated between them, the concrete becomes monolithic.
The DC Building System allows the construction of buildings to be adapted to different situations and needs. Its flexibility insures the realization of constructions of varied dimensions of 1 to 4 stories. Thanks to the unique assembling procedure of the system, it is now easy to construct high quality housing at a low cost.
From start to finish, a typical house can be completed in few weeks. Once erected, it is ready for occupation. The DC buildings do not require any interior or exterior wall or roof finishing. The profiles, which are made with a coat of weather resistant PVC, can then either be used as the interior and exterior finish, or can be covered with paint or with acrylic stucco.
PVC is a cost-effective plastic material (Polyvinyl chloride) that is massed produced. PVC can be found in a variety of construction materials including: windows, doors, piping, Venetian blinds, exterior wall coverings, etc. PVC is a stable material that does not deteriorate and requires little maintenance. The PVC used in our system is treated to resist ultra-violet rays.
DC Nordic Houses
DC INTERNATIONAL’S as developped DC NORDIC HOUSES for the Canadian north. The assembling of the units consists of two technical modules (DC MODULES) and these include all mechanical elements, plumbing, the main electrical entry, toilet, laundry and kitchen. Once on site the technical modules are installed and the floors, walls and roofs are assembled around the modules. The units are self standing or can be grouped as semidetached to cut down on construction and heating costs. The housing units are designed to allow sunlight in living areas and protection from north and northeast winds. The ceilings are cathedral type and have skylights to let in even more light
DC INTERNATIONAL’S Industrial Department has adapted one of its technologies for the realization of reinforced concrete tanks. This forming permanent system allows the construction of tanks of any size and walls thickness.
This application is ideal for construction in farming, aquaculture, water tanks, solid waste treatment plants, potable water tanks among others.
DC Insulated System
The DC Insulated System offers an alternative solution to complement the DC BUILDING SYSTEM in places where a superior thermal insulation is required or desirable.
The DC Insulated System gives you the best living environment because you can easily build a safe, more comfortable and environmental friendly reinforced concrete buildings with affordable energy costs.
The system utilizes extruded PVC profiles as well as molded/expanded plastic (rigid) foam panel components to replace the outside skin of the original DC Building System .
DC International designed this unique self-construction storage building kit to be used as high-security shelter to protect your loved ones and precious possessions during extreme weather conditions.
DC INTERNATIONAL’s Research Department has developed the latest technology for two way reinforced concrete slabs. This forming system is composed by modular and reusable elements that make possible to set up concrete buildings from one to four stories of almost any dimensions.
The DC DECK is an application of the DC FORM system to make waffle type slabs. As well as the DC FORM, the DC DECK is made of injected plastic panels which are reusable several times.
