has achieved a breakthrough in building technology. This revolutionary,
precision-engineered system will cut construction costs and provide
durable, ecologically sound and custom-designed buildings. Engineered
to withstand hurricanes and earthquakes, and built with quality
materials that are resistant to rot and termite infestation, TBS

compared with conventional construction methods, the Building System
is a better value because of the many standard features not supplied
with most building systems used in the Caribbean or Latin America.
Finished buildings have the same appearance as conventionally constructed
wood or masonry structures. With the addition of custom features,
completed homes can match local architectural styles.
exceptional value of a TBS home becomes clear after studying the
earthquake and hurricane resistance that is built into and guaranteed
with every structure. Very few, if any, conventionally constructed
or system built buildings guarantee the structural integrity of
their designs in hurricane or earthquake regions. The Building System
carries a USD $14,000,000. Product Liability Cover that backs up
When comparing costs, the TBS building is typically
less expensive to complete than a conventionally built structure
that is built to an equivalent engineering standard and quality
of finish. Insurance premiums are typically less costly than conventional
construction. TBS utilizes very high quality materials that offer
low maintenance as well as resistance to termites, fire and rot.
After comparing all of the features, it is clear that The Building
System is the best choice for building in the Caribbean and Latin
United Caribbean Trust has been set up to develop and maintain a
number of initiatives designed to empower and support those traumatized
by the weather event of the century ( so far) and would be pleased
to support innovative projects, such as this, designed to modernize
Caribbean economics through modern technologies in construction.
The potential for rejuvenating damaged real estate on affected islands
is essential and the ability to produce significant financial support
for empowerment initiatives create an excellent synergy that can
only assist and revitalize our Caribbean people.
1993 over 200 homes have been built in the Caribbean. These homes
proved themselves in Hurricanes Luis and Marilyn in 1995, Bertha
in 1996, and, most recently, Hurricane Georges, a storm responsible
for billions of dollars worth of damage in the Caribbean in 1998.
All TBS buildings, from large scale affordable housing developments
to custom designed exclusive vacation rental homes, have received
positive reviews from happy homeowners and government housing inspectors.
The homes have clearly demonstrated that they are easier to build,
very cost competitive, less costly to maintain, cooler, and, of
course, hurricane "safe." TBS is now being sought out
in Caribbean and Latin American locations that are not even in the
"hurricane belt" due to the speed of construction and
lowered labor costs.
Whether you are a family planning your dream home,
an architect designing a resort development or a housing administrator
formulating a project budget, the Building System can help you build
stronger, faster and better for less money.
