MELBOURNE, Fla., June 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Alternative
Construction Company, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: ACCY) announced today that
its ACTech Panel System will be compared in a test of hurricane projectile
strength against conventional building materials. Revels Construction of SW
Florida will be conducting the test at a current jobsite in Bradenton. The
presentation is also to include a demonstration of the speed and ease of
use of the ACTech Panel System and many of the other inherent "efficiency"
qualities of the system. Dave Revels, the Founder and co-owner of Revels
Construction and a former Manatee County Building Inspector stated, "As far
as we are concerned, this is the state of the art in housing technology. We
have not found the number of features and benefits found in the ACTech
structural insulated panel in any other materials at any cost." The
demonstration will begin at 1PM, June 22 at 4419 37th Street East (2 blocks
North from State Road 70 on 37th Street E).
To be compliant with hurricane projectile test standards, FEMA requires
that an 8 foot, 6 pound "2 X 4" be projected at a structure or construction
material at a speed of 34 m.p.h. without penetration. A "wind" cannon will
be present to launch the projectiles. The demonstration will compare
results of the "2 X 4" projectiles shot at a wood framed (and sheathed)
construction method, a block based construction method and the ACTech Panel
system. Spectators, builders and builder associations, broadcast and print
media and potential home buyers are invited to view the demonstration.
Steve Rechtsteiner, also a co-owner and Founder of Revels Construction,
works with customers to design their homes to meet cost and feature
specifications. "As an architect, an engineer, a national plans examiner
and a builder, I am able to achieve customer goals while achieving
excellent economics. More often than not, our homes are built at a cost of
$78-90 per square foot base price. This while providing the very highest
quality, secure and energy efficient home. The long-term value of 35-70% in
monthly energy bill savings cannot be over stated."

Alternative Construction Company, Inc. (ACC) possesses a unique and
patented construction technology called the ACTech(TM) Panel System that is
used in the design and production of state of the art buildings in
commercial, residential, industrial and modular building applications.
Generically known as structural insulated panels (SIPs), ACC's
revolutionary and efficient construction solution utilizes an inherently
better galvanized steel "skin" SIP system to complete energy efficient,
stronger, safer, faster, and more economical structure than conventional
wood and brick based building products. The patented ACTech SIP system is
environmentally-friendly and easier to construct with -- not only saving
labor cost and cutting construction time, but also reducing recurring
monthly heating and cooling energy bills by 30-50% and often more. Most
importantly, the ACTech panel system possesses disaster tolerant strength
and has tested stronger than conventional concrete block or wood frame
construction. In hurricane projectile tests, the ACTech(TM) Panel System
has proved to meet or surpass the most stringent wind, projectile and
uplift codes in the nation levied by the 2006 Florida Building Code. The
ACTech(TM) Panel System offers builders and consumers many competitive and
comparative advantages of use due to its wide range of attributes. As this
new construction technology gains awareness or hurricane- and tornado-prone
states establish new building codes and rebuild from recent weather
disasters, ACC believes its products will be in greater demand.
