The Building System
The name of the building company has been changed

TBS 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 is the optimal solution for building in the Caribbean
and Latin America today.
When 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
The 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 their guarantee.
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
The 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.
Since 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.
