USGIS AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROJECT
THE USGIS GLOBAL AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROJECT FOR 2020
USGIS working with countries in impoverished nations or those hit by natural events, can build affordable family homes using government energy credits and trusts to provide electricity to those homes which may never have been possible before. We will build Modular Affordable homes and developments for the people of Jamaica. The new developments will include road infrastructure as well as being self-sustaining, off-grid, homes that will provide their own water, sewer, garbage, and electric service provided by USGIS Syngas Generators. Our goal is to build a technologically advanced smart community that will be the model home and envy of the entire Caribbean.
Our collective goal is to provide architecture and engineering solutions with focus on creativity and efficiency utilizing structurally sound homes to produce communities that will enrich the areas of each project.
HOMES FOR THE FUTURE
All materials have been tested for floods, hurricanes, fires, both inside and out. The homes are designed to be conducive in areas that have high moisture content so that they are impervious to mold and mildew.
USGIS will make available several different models of homes that will vary in size and design. Through the Jamaican government we will Acquire land and begin to develop areas that will support the Jamaican economy.
USGIS Panels Feature a EPS Reinforced Core
The project will be created from its foundations with a US Green construction philosophy. Sustainable design, MSW energy resources, recycled materials and our new USGIS Panel Construction Technologies. This will generate a green community that will serve as a model for the housing industry in your country and throughout the world.
The prefabricated structural panels system lowers the construction cost in more than 50%, allowing for more houses and structures to be built.
Ventilation between each house is accomplished through an adequate separation between blocks. This avoids wind vacuum within the structure.
Special Urethane formula adhesive created by Dow Chemical for all panels binds all parts together for years of structural integrity.
Panels are available in Standard lengths of 8’ , 10’ and 12 by 4’ wide. EPS Foam is available in 2” to 12” thickness, with an insulation factor between R-13 and R-74.
THE BUILDING PROCESS
• Each house takes approximately between 2 and 3 weeks to be built and assembled completely
• The homes will be a direct connection to the USGIS electrical grid.
• The prefabricated structural panels system lowers the construction cost in more than 50%, allowing for more houses and structures to be built.
• This housing project is proposed to be a community that will offer different types of residences with basic commodities at an affordable price.
AFFORDABLE HOUSING FOR ALL
USGIS is dedicated to restorative community projects such as affordable clean housing in polulated areas otherwise not available to indigenous people in impoverished areas due to acts of God, Credit, Income environmental issues or other factors. We believe everyone should have the option of living in a clean dwelling, free of pests and sheltered from the elements.
BUILDING WITH SPEED
Extremely fast building with our USGIS EPS Panel Technology. The project will be created from its foundations with a US Green mentality and our philosophy. Sustainable design, MSW energy resources, recycled materials and our new panel technologies will generate a green community that will serve as a model for the housing industry in your country and throughout the world
