About Glavloc Build Systems Ltd

Glavloc® Build Systems (GBS) are a manufacturer of high-performance rapid build systems for the construction industry. Typically, structures utilising our build systems are completed in less than a quarter of the time compared to traditional building methods. An average structure built using our products can be normally be completed within 6 weeks, depending on the exact options and specifications required. This results in significantly improved productivity without the need to increase resources.

A1 Rated Buildings
Our wall, roof and foundation systems have BBA certified thermal properties of between 0.11 w/m2k and 0.15 w/m2k, and are the first buildings systems to have a zero thermal (cold) bridge rating. This delivers a minimum A1 rated building (A1 rating depends on other factors, such as mechanical systems and design layout). Our systems are also passive compliant when used in conjunction with an appropriately designed structure.

Orders can be fulfilled in a minimum of 2 weeks
As our systems are generically designed, we can deliver to site within a minimum of 2 weeks of an order being received. If we are consulted at an early stage we can optimise the design, reducing on-site build times and importantly, costs. Cranes or specialist lifting equipment are not required on-site to install our systems, as most components can be safely lifted by a single person.

Our building systems are manufactured to the highest quality from certified FSC® timber products, using the latest computer controlled production lines in our two facilities in Cork, and are fully tested and certified.

Green Product Awards - "A Revolutionary Way To Build"

Glavloc Build Systems. Cork, July 2018.

A Revolutionary Way to Build made it into this year’s Green Product Selection and is nominated for the green product award 2018. Since 2013, the Green Product Award has awarded innovative, sustainable design products for sustainable consumption.
A total of 400 manufacturers and designers from 25 countries applied. Currently, the international jury determines the winners from the selection. Each submission received feedback from 3 members of the jury who evaluate the products according to their expertise in design, innovation and sustainability.

Glavloc Build Systems Ltd has broken the mould and is revolutionising the way we build. The manufacturing of Glavloc’s high performance rapid build system is fully automated and can be mass produced in huge volumes of over 1000 units a year. The build system consists of only 9 standardised components manufactured from certified FSC timber that clips together to form any kind of building. This is the first system to have a zero thermal (cold) bridge rating, with insulation properties that are industry leading.

We are eager to hear from the expert jury, and the announcement of winners in early July.

From July 17, the public voting will start, where the interested public will be able to choose their winner from almost 100 products of the Green Product Selection for 6 weeks on the following website:

So, stay tuned!

The Green Product Award is an annual international competition for innovative, sustainable, products and services in the categories of architecture, work, energy, electronics, fashion, research, freestyle, children, communication, consumer goods, mobility, furniture, and home accessories. The award is aimed at established companies and start-ups. The goal of the award is to create green solutions for consumers to replace existing products with better (green) products. Since 2013, the competition has received submissions from over 40 countries. Since then, the exhibits have been presented to more than 600, 00 visitors at International trade fairs and design festivals
