The Bogotá-based social housing manufacturer, Woodpecker WPC, is literally brewing a new type of coffee – combining the fibrous strength qualities of coffee husks grinded together with the durable qualities of 100% recycled plastic polymer to serve up a new modular building system that is equal parts strong, eco-friendly, long-lasting, rapidly-deployable, and affordable (a two-story chalet starts at $5,800) – bringing millions more within reach of high-quality housing throughout the country.

WPC (wood plastic composite) interlocking construction system connects WPC profiles without using steel frames. WPC profiles are stacked one on top of another and overlapped at the corners. NO special tooling required. We developed interlocking corners by notching the wpc profiles at the ends, resulting in strong structures that are easier to build. The main advantages of our material are: Eco-friendly, splinter free, high resistance and durability, resistant to termites and insects, lightweight, easy installation tools, easy maintenance, resistant to the environment, NO combustion (fire-proof), no painting needed.
