A similar symbiosis between a consumer product and the construction industry is UltraTouch Denim Insulation. Jean fabric was originally invented in Genoa, Italy, and used by sailors to protect their goods on dock from environmental or mechanical impact. In 1873, Levi Strauss and Jacob Davis became aware of the incredible properties of the material and developed the jeans as work pants for miners in the USA. Given the material properties, it is no surprise that trousers tailored out of jean fabric are now probably the most worn piece of casual clothing worldwide.

This sandwich composition makes the material resistant to impacts and attractive for use for shipping boxes. Corrugated packaging is the biggest application industry for the material with nearly 1,500 box plants in the USA, according to the American Association of Independent Corrugated Converters. Cutting the unfolded box shape out of the boards produces large amounts of waste: there is an average of 22 tons of disposal of this highly engineered product in a box factory per day. The production remains, especially those impregnated with wax, are usually pressed into bales and sent to incineration plants or landfills for decomposition, as the recycling of the material would often be more costly than producing it anew.

SECU implemented methods for load-bearing applications. Questions of durability and maintenance were addressed and solutions tested in order to fully understand the material properties. Floor plans and sections were designed that react to the material’s characteristics, for example the limited bending capacities, resulting in rather small spans of the ceiling and roof structures. Specific regional requirements were also taken into consideration, for example the Ethiopian way of living that asks mostly for covered, but otherwise open spaces.
