Security Building Group Completes State-of-the-Art Home in Mordecai Historic District of Raleigh

Raleigh, North Carolina (February 5, 2001) -- Security Building Group, LLC, a collaboration of experienced residential builders and concrete contractors in the Triangle area, has recently completed construction of a SecureTech™ built home constructed with solid steel-reinforced concrete in the Mordecai Historic District of Raleigh.

In recent years, more and more Americans have discovered the many benefits of concrete construction. "SecureTech’s state-of-the-art construction technology allows a builder to create a high-quality home that’s safe, secure, comfortable and attractive," said David Pfanmiller, Security Building Group. "Plus the added cost-saving benefits such as low maintenance and reduced ownership costs, make these homes very appealing as an alternative to traditional wood construction."

"Inside a SecureTech built home, you’ll find distinct advantages because of the rock solid construction for unparalleled safety and security," Pfanmiller said. "We are committed to this new type of construction which protects the home from fire, infestation, and forces of nature like hurricanes and tornadoes."

Located at 1109 Wake Forest Road, the home is featured in the first SecureTech consumer brochure developed for its debut at the 2001 National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) convention in Atlanta and the World of Concrete Convention in Las Vegas. The two-story, two-unit townhouse is open for media tours and press interest before the home is sold.

A SecureTech home can be built in any choice of architectural styles, including contemporary, traditional, one or two-story, in a single or multi-family home. Once cast, the exterior walls can be covered in any of a wide range of attractive, low-maintenance materials: from stucco to siding to brick or stone. Inside, plaster-finished walls with built-in crown moldings, distinctive floor coverings that include carpeting, tiles, hardwoods, and laminates, and other extra touches add warmth and personality to the home’s appearance.

Because of concrete’s incredible thermal storage capacity, a SecureTech built home stays warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer than traditional houses. Airtight construction and rigid insulation also eliminate external air infiltration to keep inside temperatures extremely consistent and comfortable. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has consistently awarded SecureTech built homes a Five-Star Rating for energy efficiency through its ENERGY STAR® home program. Homes with the ENERGY STAR label are designed to use less energy so that homeowners save money on utility bills and help protect the environment. And particularly in areas where homes are close together, solid monolithic concrete’s sound-buffering qualities minimize noise from traffic, airplanes, and neighbors - as well as noise inside the home - So families can relax in an atmosphere of quiet and comfort.

As ENERGY STAR homes, SecureTech built homes place an emphasis on conserving energy and reducing indoor air pollution. A SecureTech constructed home follows the "Green Building" objectives and also significantly conserves trees by reducing the need for lumber. In countries where lumber is scarce and with the conservation of natural resources a priority, homeowners have enjoyed the benefits of concrete, stone and masonry homes for thousands of years.

Other new SecureTech built town homes are currently under construction in Eagle Chase subdivision in Raleigh. Shannon and Company, a Chapel Hill marketing firm, developed the brochure and can be contacted for more information or a copy of the brochure at 919-933-8026 or
