Canadian patent accepted
3L Innogénie announced that the patent application filed with the Canadian Intellectual Property Office concerning Upbrella construction technique has been accepted and the patent was issued.
3L Innogénie has developed and markets the Upbrella construction technique in which the roof of the building installed earlier and conventional handling equipment is replaced by a totally different arrangement to simplify the construction in dense urban environments. Upbrella enables developers and manufacturers to better control the risks associated with tower projects.
The Canadian patent describes not only the elements of the construction system that are part of the invention but also the resulting business method, namely that it is possible to synchronize the building, financing and selling operations because of the layout of different and unique methods inherent to the invention. Several other patent applications are pending for this major innovation in the field of high-rise building construction.
