JV takes sustainable high-tech high-rises global 

Global commercialization via joint venture of an innovative and sustainable modular approach to constructing urban high-rise dwellings.


Arlan Collins and Mark Woerman founded Sustainable Living Innovations LLC (SLI) in 2008 to construct buildings more quickly and sustainably, and to provide higher quality housing. Their team developed a revolutionary system that utilizes a kit of prefabricated components to improve building quality, reduce maintenance, and enable rapid completion of eco-smart living spaces. They partnered with Xinova to connect their building technology to global markets. 


To support broader implementation of their new technology, CollinsWoerman/SLI established a global joint venture with Xinova called Innovative Building Technologies (IBT) to protect, develop, and market the component-based building system and emergent related inventions. More specifically, they will leverage combined areas of expertise to further develop and strengthen their IP portfolio with inventions related to the core “kit-of-parts” technology and commercialize the inventions for global markets. It’s a great example of how Xinova can align local technology with global demand by leveraging its unique innovation market network.


Going forward in strategic collaboration, CollinsWoerman/SLI will continue to expand the use of their technologies in North America while Xinova pursues growth in key international markets such as China, Japan, and Viet Nam. Together, the companies will continue their pursuit of complementary innovations to make global multi-unit housing construction more efficient, affordable, and sustainable.

We view the partnership with Xinova as essential to the growth of our company. We think what they can bring to material science and other enhancements to our technology and deliverables is going to be just fantastic.

— Rick Osterhout, Executive VP, SLI
