About Us

Sunway Homes and Buildings is devoted to the design, engineering and manufacturing of steel structures for houses and commercial and industrial buildings.

Sunway Homes has been in business in the construction industry and manufacturing of Steel Structures since 1980.

In 1982 our company was the main contractor on a turn-key project for the structure manufacturing, construction and machinery installation of a flour mill and eight storage steel tanks with a capacity of 22,000 Metric Tons for the A.R.I.C. organization in Colonia Lázaro Cárdenas, Chihuahua, México. The project included the manufacturing and construction of a five stories steel building for the milling machinery.

Sunway Steel Structures have been sold in México, United States of America, South Korea, Perú, Spain, Brazil and Cyprus.

In 1996, Sunway Homes was distinguished with the First Prize, Mexico's National Steel Award in the Home Construction Category.
The historical Chapultepec Castle in Mexico City provided a grand setting for the Granting Ceremony.
At the August 16, 1996 celebration, the National Chamber of the Iron and Steel Industry awarded Sunway Homes the prize in the category of Residential Construction.

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

I am a big fan of the Beatles. The first time I heard about Maharishi Mahesh Yogi was back in the 60s. Those were big time news: ..."the Beatles interrupted their successful career to join the teaching of an Indian Guru". His name remained in my mind, and in the year 2004, when I was contacted by Dr. Benjamin Feldman, Minister of Finance and Planning of the Global Country of World Peace, an entity of the Maharishi organization, I remembered immediately to Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.

The Maharishi organization was planning to build a large number of buildings named "Peace Palaces" in several places in the USA, Brazil, Mexico and other countries, and they were looking for a manufacturer of steel structures and builder to assign this contract.

Due to the importance of the project, many conference calls were held by me with Dr. Feldman and representatives of the organization from several countries.

The negotiations were conducted for several months.

While we were in the negotiation process, I started watching the press conferences from Maharishi Mahesh Yogi on the Internet and developed a great interest, to the point that I was watching a conference per day.

During one of those multi-party telephone calls I received a sudden question: "Can you manufacture and build for us 30 buildings within 150 days?"

I recognized the voice immediately! The person asking was MAHARISHI MAHESH YOGI.

...We were talking about the biggest project ever assumed by Sunway Homes!

I told him that our company had not all the resources required for a project of this magnitude within such a short time frame. His next question was: "

...What do you need to do it?"

I mentioned a large figure, feeling that we were losing the contract. His answer was:

"I need you to start working today, I want a plan within three days, and I will give you a loan and you will pay us with your work. I know by the sound of your voice that I can have trust in you."

We signed the contract by a fax received and sent to the main offices of the organization in Holland and started manufacturing the following week.

We were manufacturing and building for the organization for two and a half years without meeting Dr. Feldman and Mr. Maharishi in person. In December of 2007 we were invited to their offices in Holland and Mr. Maharishi expressed the most kind words about Mario Manuel, my son who is the chief engineer of Sunway Homes, and me.

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi devoted his life to the creation of a better world, a "Heaven on Earth" in his words. He inspired the peace movement that helped to stop the Vietnam war.

I will always remember Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. He was on his 80s when I had the honor to dealing with him. I was always surprised with his bright mind, with his mental strength and determination, and with the fact that I found over so many conference calls that he used to work perhaps 20 hours a day!

I have no words to describe and honor MAHARISHI MAHESH YOGI, thus I will reproduce the words from one of his disciples.

Jai Guru Dev

Across the Universe by Tony Ellis

On February 4th 2008 NASA beamed The Beatles’ song Across the Universe literally “across the universe”.

The next day, His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the founder of Transcendental Meditation about which this song was written, left this world and entered into heaven.

It was an accidental but fitting tribute to the man who opened universes within the minds of millions across the world, including myself.

There are really no words to describe the relationship between spiritual teacher and disciple; it is such an intimate and personal bond, a merging of consciousness, a blending of heart and soul.

The Sanskrit word guru means “he who holds the light”. The guru is the beacon at the end of a long tunnel of darkness. This darkness is formed of ignorance, ignorance of our true selves, of our own divine nature.

The gratitude one feels to the person who rescues you from this darkness of ignorance is unlimited.

Most spiritual teachers take only a few disciples. Maharishi took on the whole world. His simple technique of meditation brought effortless experience of the unbounded nature of life to children, adults, rich and poor, Christians, Muslims, Hindus and Buddhists alike.

No one was excluded from his world. His compassionate heart, incisive intellect, infectious joy and unwavering courage convinced a whole generation to strive for peace.

Though his name faded from the headlines over the years, he worked tirelessly, 24 hours a day, each and every day for fifty years, to realize his vision of a world free from suffering, a world infused with love and happiness.

He planted the seeds for a new golden age. His contribution may never be fully recognized; it may take a while for his dreams to manifest.

He never once asked for any credit, dedicating all his efforts to his own teacher, Guru Dev, Swami Brahmananda Saraswati. The first line of the chorus to John Lennon’s song are the tribute Maharishi always gave to his master—Jai Guru Dev, Hail Holy Teacher.

But in every sign of good news, every indication of rising positivity, compassion and better understanding I see in the world today, I recognize the first delicate flowerings of Maharishi’s dream of heaven on earth.

His final message to the world was, “Live long the world in peace, happiness, prosperity, and freedom from suffering”.

From the depths of my heart, I would like to say thank you, thank you, thank you, dear Maharishi. Nothing’s going to change the peace you brought to my heart.

Across the Universe

Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup

They slither while they pass

They slip away across the universe

Pools of sorrow, waves of joy are drifting through my open mind

Possessing and caressing me

Jai guru deva om

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Images of broken light which dance before me like a million eyes

They call me on and on across the universe

Thoughts meander like a restless wind inside a letter box

they tumble blindly as they make their way across the universe

Jai guru deva om

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Sounds of laughter shades of life are ringing through my open ears

inciting and inviting me

Limitless undying love which shines around me like a million suns

It calls me on and on across the universe

Jai guru deva om

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Jai guru deva Jai guru deva

The town that rejected a University.

Smith Center Kansas is small farming county located in the geographical center of the United States. The town population was 1,931 at the 2000 census.

Smith Center was selected by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi for the construction of the Maharishi Central University, the most important project of the organization with the mision to

"Training a new generation of leadership and promoting peace for the world".

Planned Highlights of the University

• State-of-the-art training for a new generation of leaders.
• Education for Enlightenment: revolutionary, Total Knowledge based curriculum will promote optimal learning, balanced brain development, and higher states of consciousness.
• Cutting-edge knowledge and training in every field of learning: Health, Education, Economics, Law, Science and Technology, Architecture and Engineering, Communications, Administration, Defense, Agriculture, Music and the Arts, Religion and Culture, and Political Science.
• Grand exhibitions for accelerated learning: State-of-the-art, electronic display technologies will provide enjoyable, interactive learning.
• Ideal quality of life and a vibrant campus community will be comprised of students from across America and around the world.
• Majestic campus, being built in accordance with ancient Vedic principles, adorned with rivers, lakes and fountains located on lush farmland at the exact geographic center of America.
• Block system will promote ease and thoroughness of learning.
• Students and faculty will practice the Transcendental Meditation program and advanced techniques to promote health, happiness, total brain development, and superior academic performance.
• A lighthouse of peace and invincibility: Large groups of peace-creating students practicing the Transcendental Meditation program and advanced techniques have been scientifically shown to produce a powerful influence of positivity, harmony, and peace throughout society.

The planned initial investment for the construction of the University was $60 million Dollars to serve a population of 10,000 students, representing a potential income of $15 million Dollars per month for the local economy.

Believe It or Not!

The project was stopped by a lack of community support promoted by local not very well informed Religious Leaders, which spreaded the rumor that there was a Sect coming to town, trying to comit a fraud ... !!!

We will express to the People of Smith Center, Kansas: The Global Country of World Peace is not a religious organization. It is formed by people from around the world of all the different religions. Do not block this opportunity for your town's economy and for the education of your children and grand children.

The following TV News video shows the Maharishi Central University, under construction by Sunway Homes

(Unfortunately this project was temporarily stopped by a lack of community support promoted by miss-informed religious leaders which felt "competition was coming to town")

Sunway Homes' Manufacturing facilities

Terra Steel System

Imagine a home constructed using totally natural, nontoxic materials and healthy building methods ...an energy efficient home in which you and your family will feel living according to nature. A home that protects the environment during construction and for a lifetime of energy savings. A home that will provide safety and protection for your family. In few words, a high quality home for a high quality family life.

This home is available today: Is a Terra-Steel home, by Sunway Homes.

One of Sunway Homes' core values is the protection of our environment. The actual construction of houses has a very high embodied energy. (The total energy spent on the manufacturing of the building materials and on the homes construction).

Sunway Homes developed a new construction system which reduces a 70% of the embedded energy of exterior walls, contributing to lowering the emission of hazardous carbon monoxide and other destructive contaminants into the atmosphere.

We call it Terra-Steel (Patent Pending) and consists of a combination of our steel structures with earth walls.

The Terra-Steel system allows the construction of natural, healthy homes free of a variety of environmental health and safety concerns including: mold, lead, allergens, asthma, carbon monoxide, pesticides, Phenol-formaldehyde resins and radon.

Home construction with earth walls has been made in all the five continents for thousands of years, presenting two ancestral flaws: a vulnerability to water and a structural weakness.

The Terra-Steel system developed by Sunway Homes resolves the two flaws, allowing the construction of low cost, sustainable, high quality, natural, and healthy homes.
