Building Through the

                        Power of Nature

Empowerment Through Housing


 

Pacific Green Innovations, Inc. specializes in the design, manufacturing and building of panelized housing and structures which are secure, strong and effective. Through the local fabrication of our trademarked, proprietary building panels, we enable buildings to be erected in places where valuable natural resources are limited and the need for quick, durable, sustainable and economical housing is required. This is accomplished through the development of local franchised panel manufacturing facilities which utilize as close to 100% local labor for the manufacturing of building panels and the build up of homes. PGI believes in the “Train the Trainer” concept utilizing a technology knowledge transfer. Local franchise workers are trained and provided knowledge on the correct usage of our building material and the correct methods for building in accordance to International building code.

                                                      Each franchise facility creates a minimum of 300 local “living wage” jobs

                                                                           ...and at full capacity has over 1,200 persons in its employ.

 
The local PGI franchised facilities manufacture our trademarked, proprietary building panels which are fire, moisture, sound and thermal resistant, as well as resistant to insects and vermin. The panels are quickly assembled into structures using our trademarked, proprietary CHIPS assembly process.

As an example of our construction speed and cost efficiency, a 53sqm home can be installed

and finished by a team of 9 persons in less than 5 days and cost less than USD$10,000.

 

Every structure installed by PGI's franchise partners include US structural engineering approvals for seismic, flooding and hurricane and are built in conformance with the requirements of the 2009 International Building Code (2009 IBC) standards and parameters. All homes are inspected and certified to have met such standards prior to occupation and include a 30 year product warranty ensuring against material defect.

 

PGI is focused on countries and partners that are in need of affordable housing.

    A PGI franchise can be purchased for as little as $515,000 USD.

A Global Crisis

The world is experiencing a global housing crisis. According to United Nations estimates, more than 1.6 billion people live in substandard housing, 100 million are homeless and more than 14 Million refugees and internally displaced people are living in tents or other temporary shelters. If no serious action is taken, this number is projected to double to over 3 billion people within the next 2 decades.

Vast amounts of research confirm that a living wage job and access to clean, decent, safe housing provide:

   * an increased stability for families;

   * a sense of dignity and pride;

   * increased health & lifespans;

   * increase in educational prospects;

   * increased ability to provide food;

   * increased security & well being;

   * PEACE within the community.


Immediate action is demanded of all people of good conscience to step forward and address a problem that has reached epic proportions. Every person should have access to: enough food for their family, a decent place to call home, health and eductaion for their children and a job to be proud of.
