Affordable Housing and Food Security
SIP panels are made in a manufacturing plant at a rate of 1,000 square feet an hour. The EPS provides solid core insulation while the Oriented Strand Board provides incredible strength to withstand hurricane force winds earthquakes. The panels will be clad or covered with materials that are non-combustible. Erection time is a fraction of stick built construction, and the energy efficiency reduces the utility bill by as much as 55 to 70%.
Steelheart will provide the panels to the job site, and can erect them in the absence of others trained to do so. In California, where there are over 108,000 homeless, this is perfect for local communities which set up vocational training programs.Owners or occupants can get immediate shelter and finish the homes on their own pace and to their own liking.
Steelheart will continually seek properties that can be acquired and developed for the intended purpose. Village Farms are an example. By acquiring ag land and creating farm co-ops, multiple families can live in quality, affordable housing, and share the food and income from hydroponic farming. The income can help offset the cost of housing.

Brenda has 14 years of experience in the Tourism and Hospitality Industry, where she started off as a Travel and Tour Consultant with Carlson Wagonlit Travel in 2003 immediately after her BA in Tourism & Hospitality from Makerere University. She soon joined the US Based Hotel Magnate Marriott International as the Country Sales Representative for Uganda, and rose to the Strategic Account Manager for East Africa and later Director of Market Sales for East, West and Southern Africa between 2004 to 2010, recruiting and training country sales teams and promoting Marriott hotel brands within the region.
