“The simplicity in construction permits an important reduction in the works’ schedule when compared with the traditional system, since the structure, front, partitions, framework, roof, lintels, struts and thermal acoustic insulation form one single element.”
The company uses unique structural panels that are earthquake,hurricane and fire resistant with thermo-acoustic insulation. The versatile system allows for more flexible, and creative architecture, achieving more economical buildings, constructed efficiently and sustainably. By connecting the panels in a monolithic way, according to the layout of the walls and slabs, and without using any type of joint, a super tri-dimensional structure of reinforced concrete is generated. This construction technique makes it possible to complete any type of architectural work, from single-family homes to multi-floor buildings.
The robust nature of the system, combined with the speed at which it can be deployed, makes Baupanel the perfect solution to deliver sustainable accommodation at speed anywhere in the world.

Founded in 2017, Suite Living is a subsidiary of SHS and its mission is to redefine the student living experience as we know it. Suite Living provides students with a secure, study friendly environment including recreational facilities and relaxing outdoor surroundings enabling students to gain the best possible experience throughout their studies
There has been an exponential rise in the populations of most African countries over the past 15 years, leading to a surge in the enrolment of students and, consequently, an increase in the number of universities. Increased enrolments have placed an immense strain on higher educational institutions, giving forth to various infrastructural constraints, among which – student accommodation. As a result students have become at risk of exploitation, residing in distracting environments often far away from their university due to insufficiency of on-campus accommodation.
With a focus on developing countries, Suite Living currently has several projects across Ghana, Kenya, India, Sri Lanka but also has activity in the United Kingdom.

“Vectorcide Coating is a unique formulation built on many years of research and development. Using a highly advanced micro and nano encapsulation formulation, it only releases its potent killing agent onto insects – and not us!”
Desolenator is an innovative, solar-powered water purification system. Unlike many other existing solutions, Desolenator doesn’t require any replaceable membranes, filters or chemicals, and is adaptable to any water source. The company is driven by its philosophy – to provide easy access to clean water universally affordable and environmentally sustainable; empowering people and municipalities to be independent in control of their own water.
All energy requirements are met through solar power, which is integrated into the complete system. The core IP protected technology utilizes the maximum potential energy from the sun, harvesting both thermal and electrical energy from the panels. Desolenator is therefore completely energy independent.
“We believe in universal access to safe and sustainably produced water. Our vision is Water Independence.”
No consumables: Unlike existing technologies, Desolenator does not require any replaceable membranes, filters or chemicals.
Desolenator technology is adaptable to any water source and is able to purify water seawater (high TDS) as well as water containing chemical (nitrogen, bleach, metals, toxic), organic (bacteria, viruses, protozoan, and parasites) contaminants.
Quick installation – fully operational in a few days.
Scale modularly – units can be connected to one another depending on required water output.
*Reverse osmosis (RO) is a water purification technology that uses a semipermeable membrane to remove ions, molecules and larger particles from drinking water.
