HYBRID CONCRETE-STEEL COMPOSITE FOR AN ENERGY EFFICIENT HOUSE

This article describes the advantages, both in energy efficiency and construction costs, of a house built with concrete and steel. In the U.S. concrete has been used in housing generally in the southern states, such as Florida, Arizona, and Texas. This article discusses an actual prototype house located in Silver Spring, Maryland (suburban Washington, D.C.). There is no structural wood in this house, yet it is an attractive colonial traditional home in the Mid-Atlantic region of the country.
