Cost Considerations

Cost Comparison

Our "Less is More" philosophy extends to the price of our building system. Even though our system delivers an extraordinary level of long term higher financial, physical and environmental benefits and advantages, it is usually priced very competitive with good quality and turn-key conventional stick-built structures of the same footprint, layout and amenity package. In comparison to post and beam, timber frame and log cabin structures, we are normally priced significantly lower than all of these building systems. In comparison to systems marketed as "Green" and/or "High Performance", we are most often priced significantly below their square foot cost, yet able to meet or often exceed their performance claims.

Ownership Cost

Real estate comes with two groups of costs, one at the point of purchase, the "Sticker Price", and the other, every penny spent to purchase, own, operate and maintain a building over the decades until the day it is sold. Ownership cost is the difference between all these expenses less the net proceeds after selling the structure. This building system has been strategically designed to deliver structures that will withstand more severe weather conditions better, cost less for energy and maintenance and generate the opportunity for higher long term resale value and ROI.

Resale Value

Actual long term resale value plays a vital role in the full life cycle ownership cost and ROI equation. Planning for a higher resale value involves several considerations before the purchase of a building.

  1. The ability of a structure to remain attractive and structurally sound after years of exposure to the more severe weather conditions relating to global warming.
  2. The actual operating costs of the building that educated millennial buyers will expect to review in the future.
  3. The buildings ratings relative to the far more stringent national building codes and environmental performance programs being adopted across the country. The "Ultra-High Performance Building Shell System"™ either meets and/or exceeds all current building and above building code standards.
  4. The next generation of buyers, the millennials, who prefer modern, different, techie and Green, which this building system provides them.

The right purchase decision today can deliver significantly higher resale value down the road.

Compare Before Committing

Before making a long term financial commitment for new construction in the residential, multi-family, commercial, retail or professional real estate sectors, carefully compare other building system’s legitimate long term financial, physical and environmental performance standards against the "Ultra-High Performance Building Shell System"™.
