My mother a ceramist and father a chemical engineer. I graduated in mechanical engineering but went on to get a degree in architecture since we still did not have industrial design in Quebec, my career wish. Started off with Bombardier Research Dpt. as a junior designer, later becoming chief designer at Sno*Jet, authoring 25 snowmobile models (including the legendary Thunder*Jet racing sled ) in 5 years. After our best racer was killed, I went to Finland to help develop the first unbreakable injected cross-country skis with Karhu, later building the Cowansville QC factory. I later worked for green energies with IREQ, a research branch of Hydro-Quebec where I also designed all 500 of the heliported service modules for the
very high-voltage lines from the James Bay to southern Quebec. I later developed the machinery and models to produce the first mobile homes manufactured from 6 giant size foam-injected panels from the world's largest press, a 80' x 12' x 16' toaster-like behemoth that fed a mile long assembly line from overhead trolleys. Panelized or fully assembled, these were sold from the Arctic to the Middle-East thanks to their rigidity and high insulation value. Then I founded my own company called Archimede Systems to develop and sell from a fresh patented idea of mine (USPO#4462191). This was 1981 when money was not available and real estate was dead, yet without spending a cent in advertising we sold 12 million in the second year, building a second factory a year later and soon exporting thousands of those stilt houses to 22 countries, mostly as ski resorts(Rockies) or beach resorts (Carribeans). I sold my Canadian patent to my partners and went on to refine the US patent inside a new plant in Los Alamos NM, building the Pajarito Mountain Ski Lodge, commercial and DOE buildings. Then I built a new factory in FL and another one in LA for exports to South America, delivering condos to Venezuela and other markets. Those were erected in a day and finished in less than a week, coming with everything including AC and appliances. We typically fitted 3 houses in two containers, usually a mix of 80,100,120 m2 size, of one or 2 stories. Upon retiring, I formed the Archimede non-profit Institute to provide exportable housing that can resist hurricanes, earthquakes floods and mudslides. Recently, after a conclusive study, I formed Baja6 in Mexico to design and export prefab housing that can resist all of the above but also including resistance to tsunamis (see www.baja6.com). I later went back into retirement when I could not raise enough local money for the project. So this year a few old-timers and myself got together to start a non-profit to disseminate a buiding technique for areas prone to all natural disasters including tsunamis. We set-up a testing facility in Baja California and co-wrote a program that we distribute freely to design and manage large of small hi-tect projects anywhere in the world. see www.hi-tect.org

hi-tect corporation Our is a California non-profit devoted to promoting and teaching solutions to housing for severely exposed areas to natural disasters. Our original Archimede patent and others still not expired are now of public domain and applied to saving lives and property in projects that can suffer
floods, monsoon, hurricanes, tornados, extreme climate and tsunamis. We have developed and are testing a tsunami shelter that is used as a community hall in normal times. When any size tsunami hits, it floats up and if necessary will de-socket itself from its three stilts and float along the tsunami flow. Its protective shell is designed to not get caught in 'log jams' and to provide a platform to lift victims out of the dangerous debris-filled flow. It is unsinkable and can even protect occupants if it is drifting at sea. We have several beach resorts in several countries where severe hurricanes visited without causing our units any serious damage. The strength of our concepts is now legendary in the tropics. This summer, we have designed and are building an entry-level concept that can be assembled in just a few hours. Our web site will present this solution on the 24th of June. The cost per ft2 of each 164 ft2 module is $0.50 only, and it is manufactured with low skilled labor in any country that has rebars and concrete mesh. Cages are thus formed that are then completed with local vegetal materiaals, reeds, adobe, palm fronds, mud and straw etc..The intresting fact is that these low-cost structures will take any hurricane or flood we can imagine. We design special tools to facilitate the production of these identical frames. Carlsbad CA 92010
We are a non-profit group financed by its members, donors and select sponsors. Although not complete until 2015, our blog has a slideshow tab with many photos of our past projects and illustrations of our future projects. Our main tool is an application that runs inside Microsoft Excel; it allows NGO’s and
others to create, model in 3D, control and complete on time* and within budget any size Hi-Tect project. anywhere. The clients, designers, architects, engineers, developers, the licensed manufaturers, their suppliers and erectors, builders, and all trade can instantly collaborate using an identically updated and linked program.
