Uruguayan Architect Receives Concrete Dwelling Patent
Jaime Boxer, an architect from Uruguay, South America, has been granted a patent for System and Method for the construction of Concrete Dwellings. It is a foundation concrete raised floor with concrete pilings. This method is desirable for building concrete houses because they are lifted from the ground, with no worries about humidity, bugs or flooding.
Boxer has built 16 concrete houses in his country ranging from 3000 to 7000 square feet. He has developed a basement concrete system with the raised floor as the concrete structure bearing the basement that can be totally protected from water, including high water table and floods.
Boxer has been recommended by the US Embassy in Uruguay to participate in the World of Concrete in Las Vegas in January 2019 and is looking for opportunities to demonstrate his patent at that event.
