The unique and advanced design of Centric’s IBSTM SIP system offers the fastest construction completion time of any other building methods in the world. Moreover, Centric’s IBSTM SIP system provides some of the most affordable construction methods around. A HUD-International Building Code compliant 1,000 square foot (approximately 93m2 ) 3 bedroom, 2 bath, single-story home with basic amenities can be constructed for as low as $20 per square foot (approximately $215/m2), not including the building’s foundation, land, or infrastructure. Comparable costs (per sq. ft. w/basic amenities) would apply to buildings 1/4th this size or 4 times this size. Additionally, smaller International Building Code compliant living quarters with lesser amenities can be constructed for less that $17 per square foot (approximately $185/m2), not including the building’s foundation, land, or infrastructure. This brings true affordability to quality housing that can well serve the middle and lower income population throughout the world. Nonetheless, a unique aspect of Centric’s IBSTM SIP system, is that it can also be used in the construction of high-end, luxury, multimillion dollar buildings and residential housing through the use of more expensive finish materials and upgraded, upscale amenities.
