Residential Project Profile: The Terraces


The Terraces - Port Aransas, Texas: Concrete Core-CGF

The objective of this unique project was to create a low maintenance, energy efficient and durable home, that targeted beach vacationers. The property owners selected Coastal Fortified Homes to collaborate on the design and implementation to achieve this high level of performance. Rmax polyiso insulation was selected to provide a thermal layer of protection for energy efficiency.

The Terraces home’s were constructed of pre-cast concrete “sandwich” panels, which consist of two reinforced wythes (layers) of concrete encasing 3” Rmax Concrete Core-CGF .  These home’s were engineered to withstand and protect against threatening storms with up to 200 MPH winds.
