With an ambitious Human+Nature vision, we are empowering sustainable life! We are experts at integrating
sustainable design concepts and regenerative technologies that help our clients create new modern
sustainable living environments that serve both their financial and environmental concerns.
Blending the best of old and new into every project, we achieve excellence in a hyper stressed
world of limited resources, challenging environments and global uncertainty. The ReGen Group isn't
a traditional collection of environmental professionals, and that allows us to think outside of the
box to come up with the best solution not just a better one. Yet when it's really
important to achieve top value for your integrated product quality dollar, were second to none!
Drop us a line or give us a call and let us show you the ReGen difference! We have the vision to make your project rise above!
In reference to a dwelling, passive survivability, is the ability of a structure to self-sufficiently function as a comfortable shelter, even in the face of extreme circumstances. A structure should be able to light, heat, cool, de-humidify and ventilate itself passively even if no off-site energy resources are available. In New Orleans, at a minimum, it must survive global warming, subsidence, and category-five hurricanes. While our Raising a City proposal will protect the entire city from the gradual processes of rising sea levels and subsidence, our Telescoping Piers system protects each structure from flooding and storm surges during a hurricane. Renewable energy, battery systems, a 13-month supply of potable water and a flood-safe, rooftop, food garden all provide residents with a means to sustain themselves during the next disaster.

- NASA Technical Briefs [view] : The REOSE Solar Panel Hause is a home that is completely built with Steel, Structurally Insulates Solar Panels (SSISP). The Reose SSISPs' are unique because they are the only structural building material that collects, transfers, stores and converts solar photovoltaic and solar thermal energy flows into useful, and mindful work.
