Two production model homes were shown as part of three developments Mercedes has planned for Central Florida. According to those involved in the project, the models "represent a significant departure from the concrete block construction prevalent in the Florida market to a ‘poured-in-place’ concrete wall approach that uses innovative aluminum forms."
A total of 175 homes will be built in 2001 by Mercedes, using the new technology. In addition to the concrete approach, the homes include energy-efficient mechanical equipment.
