With a mission to construct stronger, more resilient structures that can withstand intensifying storms and devastating winds, RENCO USA has unveiled a new way to build that mirrors a popular children's toy: Legos.

RENCO, short for renewable composite, weaves together recycled glass fibers, recycled plastic, resin, and stone into a powerful material that’s rated to withstand a Category 5 hurricane. Molded blocks interlock like Lego bricks to create entire structures, with the first 96-unit housing complex coming to life in Palm Springs, Florida.
