Bringing high efficiency automated manufacturing to the building industry
Our manufacturing facility is fully automated resulting in higher quality, and precision. By manufacturing in a controlled environment, we are able to build with a level of accuracy that is simply impossible to achieve with traditional on-site construction.
Bringing high efficiency automated manufacturing to the building industry
Our manufacturing facility is fully automated resulting in higher quality, precision, and repeatability. By manufacturing in a controlled factory environment, we are able to build with a level of precision that is simply impossible to achieve with traditional on-site construction.
Rapid onsite assembly
The final step of the process is assembling the building. Once the foundation has been completed, the building is shipped in large panels to the construction site. Our proprietary mechanical, and structural component connection system allows for the assembly of fully finished wall and floor panels. All onsite fabrication work is eliminated. The building is installed within a matter of days!
Value drivers that set BAUMATIX apart:
BAUMATIX is a building system designed to dramatically reduce construction time and increase quality.
Much like the auto industry uses detailed design software, automation, robotic systems and high efficiency manufacturing equipment to produce vehicles, so too, BAUMATIX will manufacture buildings. Our rigorous design process eliminates costly errors down the road. BAUMATIX also uses detailed Building Information Modeling software that works directly with the manufacturing facility to create large fully finished sub components of a building. These sub components are then shipped to the building location for final assembly.
Contrast to the current method of construction where raw materials are brought to the jobsite, processed into finish materials, and then installed using subpar tools that are designed primarily for mobility, BAUMATIX uses automated equipment in a controlled environment to produce fully completed wall and floor panels. These panels include all structural and MEP systems.
BAUMATIX manufacturing system eliminates much of the waste and inefficiencies that are in the current construction process, such as subcontractor delays, labor shortages, an unpredictable labor force, dangerous jobsite conditions, design errors, unreliable quality, weather, staging, on-site material storage, waste removal etc. Currently, BAUMATIX system is targeted at buildings up to 6 stories
Peter Mueller was born in the US and grew up in Germany. From a young age Peter has been fascinated with engineering and architecture. As a boy he was known for the very detailed, elaborate building models he would construct.
Through the years, Peter gained broad technical knowledge and hands-on experience in all aspects of the building industry. At the age of 20, Peter Mueller received his General Building Contractor (Class B) license in California.
Peter’s approach to designing fully realistic 3D building models has proved essential in his building process, enabling the seamless integration of all mechanical and structural systems. This approach has avoided costly project delays and enhanced the overall design.
In 2013 Peter began work on a new venture: engineering and manufacturing personal safety equipment. During this period Peter traveled abroad, working closely with contract manufacturers in Asia and Europe. Throughout this period, he gained valuable experience in manufacturing technology, supply chain management, and quality assurance. His hands-on approach gave him direct experience in injection molding, extrusions, die castings, machining, 3D printing, and textile fabrication. Never abandoning his deep passion for the building industry, in late 2016 he began working on the initial plans to develop a high-efficiency automated manufacturing system to assemble buildings. His recent experience in the development and manufacturing of personal safety equipment, combined with his building experience, has been fundamental in creating the underlying framework of the BAUMATIX automated assembly system.
Solstis grew up in Europe, South America, and the US. From the very beginning, he has been an entrepreneur, selling handmade leather goods at the age of 5 to running a small woodworking shop by the age of 16.
For years Solstis worked in various sectors of the construction industry, taking on both large commercial projects and modern high-end custom homes. Solstis’s hands-on experience as a project manager in organizing subcontractors and materials has given him a clear understanding of the challenges facing the construction industry.
In 2012, Solstis founded SEP Solar, a renewable energy company based in Belgium. SEP has successfully installed solar projects throughout Belgium, Germany, and France. He enjoys retrofitting office buildings and homes, showcasing his passion and talent for modern design with a focus on efficiency. His multiple ventures have rendered him valuable business management experience. With a vision for change and new horizons he joined forces in creating BAUMATIX.
Sean has worked as a project manager in the Napa Valley area, developing and building high-end, custom homes. He is known for his attention to detail and thorough execution of projects.
His experience in managing teams and effectively communicating a positive vision has been integral in creating a highly effective workforce.
Sean also has technical experience in each area of product development of mechanical components. His skills in SolidWorks, AutoCAD, 3D Printing, and machining allow him to seamlessly move from design to analysis to prototyping to testing. His work on previous projects has greatly reduced the product development cycle. Sean is very focused on seeing every project through, from start to completion.
Steve has over 35 years of experience in engineering buildings around the world, leading the engineering of many significant projects, including Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, CA; the Beijing Olympic Stadium (the Birdsnest); The Allianz Arena in Munich Germany; Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business; and the City of Manchester Stadium in the U.K., built for the Commonwealth Games.
Steve brings a wealth of international experience to the business,
Burrows joined Arup in 1982 following his graduation from Liverpool Polytechnic, where he received a BSc in Civil Engineering. In 2009, he was honored with a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in recognition of his civil engineering work overseas. He is a Professional Engineer, Fellow of the American Society of Civil Engineers, Fellow of the Institution of Civil Engineers, Member of the Institution of Structural Engineers and a Chartered Engineer. He is also member of the Board of the AIA in San Francisco, and has a TV show called Engineering the Impossible which goes out on the Science Channel in the USA and the Discovery Channel.
Burrows can toss off engineer jokes with the best of them–but he notes that the stereotypes are patently false. “The jokes are legendary and of course, people do say engineers are boring, but I can’t remember ever once being bored in my job,” he muses. “Imagine having the chance to design a stadium where the Olympic Games take place. Who gets the chance to do something like that? Only engineers. When you see a news story about say, driverless cars coming soon, it is an engineer who thinks: how are we going to design city infrastructures and spaces for this? We turn the wildest concepts into realities
Steve is chock full of ideas on the future of engineering: “A big area of change right now is robotics and soon we’re going to see more machines involved in everyday projects. New materials are also coming–materials that will allow buildings to not only be more responsive to people, but also more sustainable and healthier. We’re also going to see more clever integrations of buildings and data–where a building might tell us where it’s experiencing stress or starting to crumble long before it becomes a problem. Buildings are going to have brains, in a sense, and that will be a big leap forward.
