Building Affordable Concrete Homes with
Structural Lightweight Cellular Concrete
Isle CellCrete lightweight cellular concrete technology dramatically reduces the forming, placement and finishing costs of normal weight concrete.
Utilizing light weight handset forming systems, CellCrete delivers solid concrete structural walls at costs competitive with traditional lumber and steel framing systems on typical residential projects.

Faster forming and placement.
Composed of light, reusable panels, this new generation of handset forms sets up and disassembles rapidly, without heavy lifting equipment.
On residential projects, these handset systems dramatically reduce the amount of time, material, equipment and labor required with traditional forms by 25-30%, and bring the cost of solid concrete structural perimeter walls to a level comparable with lumber or light gauge steel systems on homes of similar size.
In four days, a four person crew can complete the concrete load bearing perimeter walls of a 1200 sq. ft. unit including:
- form set up
- placement of window and door openings
- electrical conduit
- structural steel reinforcing material
- concrete placement
- formwork breakdown
CellCrete on Maui
This home's entire 3000 sq. ft. perimeter and interior structural wall system was produced by a three person crew in just twenty man days.

Steel reinforced, solid concrete structural walls provide superior strength and durability.
CellCrete places smoothly and dramatically reduces the amount of patching and grinding required to prepare cast in place concrete walls for finishing.
CellCrete can be finished with a wide variety of textures, coatings and finishing systems.
Concrete homes stand up to the fury of nature. Solid concrete walls provide stronger and safer shelter when fire, hurricanes, and earthquakes threaten and are safe from termite infestation.
Owners of concrete homes also enjoy the benefits of lower maintenance and insurance costs.
Peace of Mind. Peace And Quiet.
In addition to concrete's strength and durability, its solid, continuous and airtight walls provide high insulation values, greater sound control and moisture resistance.
Solid concrete's greater mass slows down the passage of moisture, heat and sound. Concrete homes stay dry and comfortable year round-warmer in the winter, cooler in the summer and are often two-thirds quieter than wood and steel frame homes.
