(Concrete Modular Houses)

Factory made waffle boxes means better quality (controlled environment), ready-
finished, plug-in units, expandable side wards or upwards (expand when able), highly
resistant to earthquake and tornado (micro portal frames), mitigates against flood,
storm surge, tidal waves, snow, sand storm (stilt foundation and concrete deck),
resilient, green (does not use wood, lighter hence require lesser cement and steel but
equally stronger), waffles can receive insulation (unlike hollow blocks?), free concrete
roof deck, and many more!

Come! Visit our office or factory. Own 1!

Mr. and Mrs. Wilhelm Residential House

Cost? +/- Php 20,000 per square meter floor area; including finishing, which
is LOWER than the average price to build a comparable (!!) hollow block home. Of
course we give a much lower price when we build more than one house or commercial
building By the way Waffle Box Homes are actually half price since a 40 square
meter house has a 40 square meter roof deck EXTRA
This studio unit cost P395,000 is 3m wide x 6.75m long x 2.7m high, or
20.25 sq.m. But also included is another deck equivalent to 20.25 sq.m.
Included : Plans, structure, floor tiles, painted walls and ceiling (bare
concrete), Filipino standard kitchen, Filipino Standard t&b, wood doors,
steel windows, septic vault, electrical post, electrical, plumbing,
Excluded : hot water, water tank, pump, aircon, water and electrical
deposits to utility companies, stair to deck, deck railing, all kinds of bonds
and insurances.
Variable cost : freight, foundation.

Cost to expand side ward or up wards +/- P395,000 per 20.25 sq.m.

Roof, Floor and Walls monolithically poured IN ONE-STEP and with Portal Frames (=
steel bars all-around like a Roll Cage in your car) which gives the highest structural
strength against earth quakes and typhoons. NO THEY ARE NOT PANELS; we cast
the Roof, Floor and Walls TOGETHER at the same time! Every unit is 4,000 PSI
(thats strong enough to carry 4 extra floors)


Using up to 50% LESS CONCRETE (cement)

ROOF DECK as bonus (thats a HUGE EXTRA FLOOR-SPACE!) and the ONLY
ROOF which does not fly away with typhoons

Made in a factory; transported to your lot; placed in 1 day (Industrialized Building

They can be relocated or may be transferred to a another site

we offer loans, easy flexible payment
attractive designs; Tropical, Minimalist, Mediterranean etc.
not only for Homes; also for Mass Housing and Mid to High Rise Buildings,
Dormitories, Rentable apartment units etc.


When? The first actual construction is scheduled at the first quarter of 2014; but we
are already very busy with designs, talking to developers etc.

What? Homes, Mass Housing and Mid to High Rise Buildings, Dormitories, Rentable
apartment units, Rent-to-Own condominium units.
Where? Anywhere in the Philippines (Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao). Then the rest of
the world.

Speed? VERY FAST; we can install your home within 1 day


you will have a huge ROOF DECK as bonus

you can build by phases (add a bedroom later when you have the budget). We can
design your house ready for additions; to expand your home to suit the needs of a
growing family.
Waffle Box Building Technology is about 10x stronger than the ordinary hollow block
walls. Earthquake-, fire-, typhoon-, hurricane and flooding resistant.
Its GREEN CONSTRUCTION. Saving up to 50% Cement; its lightweight.
Its a Industrialized Building System; They are precast, pre-finished and plug-in
Our Waffle Box Building Technology reinforced concrete homes are disaster-
resistant to tornado force winds, storm, hurricane, typhoon, earthquake.

Rather than building your home as separate wall, floor and roof elements, connected
by a variety of debatable techniques (!), we form the shell of your house as a six-sided
box-rigid-frame, like the hull of a ship or the fuselage of a submarine; a concrete
envelope of poured monolithic reinforced concrete. Intimately connected with steel
reinforcing bars.

Then we let the concrete dry (cure) and (if requested-) we attach doors, windows,
tiles, paint etc.

After this, we transport your home (in parts) to your building-site where a crane lifts
them into place. We connect the units together; welded, bolted and/or with dowel
connections. A house in 1 day.

Finally; our crew will take care of the final finishing touch.

we pour 6 homes in 1 day
with only 1 form

With this technology (being cheap, durable and fast), we will build
homes, mass-housing, apartment buildings, offices, hotels, student accommodations,
schools and dormitories all over the Philippines; and we can still use some investors
After the conventional (hollow blocks), cast in-situ concrete, precast- and
prefabricated plus composite building technologies; Waffle Box Building Technology is
the latest building method. Non comparable with the old column and beam or panel
systems with its cumbersome joints which are very sensitive to mistakes

Waffle Box Building Technology is engineered and optimized to place concrete

precisely where it is structurally required for strength (Portal Frame), reducing the
use of concrete by maybe 50%.

We deliver your house or 8-storey dormitory at your doorstep; pre-painted, with

electrical and plumbing ready, sound- and heat insulated optional.

How to save a lot of cement concrete?

Making cement (the grey powder to make concrete) requires a lot of energy; its not
environmental friendly. Thats why many effort is being made to find ways to reduce
the use of cement.

For example Green Concrete and Cementless Concrete are already available in the
However; who wants to be a guinea pig and take the risk of using these new
(expensive-) products?

We do not want to compromise the structural integrity of your building. We simply

introduce vertical and horizontal steel reinforced ribs (micro beams and columns) to
the walls and slabs that will resist all the building loads. It performs like a 6 inch
thick wall (same strength) while the skin or voids between the ribs is only 2 inch

This way we reduce the use of cement plus steel by maybe 50% and the
foundation can be reduced because the whole building is light-weight

Hence the name Waffle Box construction technique.

After all ordinary concrete has been used for decades and those buildings are still

We dont believe in endless rows of one-storey bungalows on individual lots ; real

estate becomes too expensive near the cities so vertical construction is the way to go.

The Future of the Philippine Construction Industry

Its a matter of Long-term Thinking

We build ships, airplanes and cars in a factory for obvious good reasons; increased
quality and speed, reduced cost.
But when we need to build a house.. there comes all the workers, machineries, tools and
materials to the lot where the building is to be constructed
As a result there is inconsistent quality, delays, material waste and a dangerous
working environment.
Oh, and did I mention HIGHER COST??
Assembly-line automation is THE obvious future for construction; industrialised
building system (IBS).
Or else we will pay more and more to build our home or apartment building etc.

Yes, Industrialized Building System means less labor needed; especially Unskilled
Labor (included foreign workers or OFWs).
So you can bet your bottom dollar that any government of a developed country will
push IBS to save millions by reducing the dependency on foreign workers and stop the
outflow of currency.

While Waffle Box Building Technology is not a one size fits all solution; it might be
THE solution to the growing demand for QUALITY affordable housing not only in
the Philippines or Malaysia but all over the world.

Waffle Box Building Technology is not just industrialized construction; it is

simultaneously a lower cost-, faster-, stronger, lighter- and new building method.

you can expand your home to suit the needs of a growing family; who doesnt need
more space as time goes by..??

Waffle box is an industrialized building system. They are precast, pre-finished and
plug-in units. This patented technology which we own has standard rooms or livable
units or boxes for the buyers to choose from. The production of the boxes being
uniform is fast and cheap. Further, these waffle boxes were designed to comply with
the DPWH standard for mobile cargoes.

We have a technology (waffle box) that is insulation-ready. It is an Industrialized

Building System that are prefabricated, pre-finished (in fabrication sites) , plug-in
units which is fast and high resistant to earthquake and hurricanes. We hold the
patent both for local and international.

We also invite investors or partners of this technology in the Philippines and also
worldwide. Or for low rise houses (2 to 3 floors) we can use aerated concrete as
material for insulation.

Industrialized Housing Production is the only solution

The Philippines will have an expected mass housing backlog of more than 4 million units
in 2016. Jerrys invention is not only a construction method for social housing; it can
also be used for custom designed (or select from our models) homes, dormitories,
schools, apartments, condos, boarding-houses and other commercial buildings

Industrialized Housing; building your home in a factory

We dont believe in construction methods like panels between columns (weak joints)
or gluing concrete hollow blocks together; our building system is unique (worldwide
patent pending) and involves monolithic poured 3D three-dimensional modules,
volumetric cast-in-place concrete construction (precast box) with less dead load (up
to 50% less cement and steel) which takes place off site in a remote warehouse (or on-
site when the order is big) and are then transported by truck to the building site
where the units are lifted in place by crane.

Industrialised Housing; like making cars on a production-line; cost savings through

economies of scale. Weather delays, missing materials, and subcontractor no-shows
are eliminated, saving time and money.
The latest 7.2 magnitude earthquake in Bohol and Cebu plus the Super Typhoon
Yolanda (Haiyan) that hits Central Visayas are also lessons for those who consider
construction as an ordinary thing Its MANDATORY to build with a durable
technology and seek services of only professionals

Most Pinoys will probably rebuild their home exactly the same way; and wait for the
next devastating storm. The Philippine government hopefully will build SUSTAINABLE
and AFFORDABLE housing for them.

But what makes a house Super Typhoon- and Earthquake Proof?

Forget about a corrugated steel sheets roof. It appears to be technically

IMPOSSIBLE to construct any concrete home with a corrugated steel/zinc sheeting
roof (whether with wooden frame or steel purlins) that will withstand a direct hit
from a Super Typhoon like Yolanda without substantial damage.

Contrary to popular belief, most homes are NOT blown over during a Super Typhoon.
Instead, you will most likely hear a strange sound coming from the ceiling for a while
after which the complete roof will explode outwards followed by your appliances and
maybe the cat.

Thus; consider a concrete roof deck

Waffle Box Building Technology has it all.

It is a reinforced concrete shell design; concrete floor, walls and roof deck (ceiling),
reinforced with steel bars and monolithically poured in one-go. Using one form
only (How do we do that?? Just ask us by E-mail)

It lacks the (weak-) connections of wall-panels or hollow blocks between posts and/or
pre-cast roof panels.

It has the structural integrity of an aircraft fuselage or a ship hull.

It has portal frames every 60 centimeter distance; they are steel bars inside the
poured concrete which look like a door jamb:

Each portal frame consists of a ring of steel bars which is casted in one-go inside
your concrete floor, walls and roof deck (ceiling). They act like steel bars all-around
like a Roll Cage in your car. Using one form only (How do we do that?? Just ask us by

The walls plus roof is 6 inch thick where needed (portal frames); 2 inch thick in
between, to save about 50% concrete/weight.
PS: we build apartments, hotels, schools etc. exact the same way, typhoon- and
earthquake proof

A secure safe room? Evacuation shelters in the Philippines

Instead of making your complete house typhoon- and earthquake proof,
you can opt to put one Shelter Waffle Box (20 square meter) in your
garden, to protect you and your family against flying cars Adjusted with
steel doors and window shutters.

Shelter construction in the Philippines; for bomb, underground, fallout, emergency, earthquake, disaster, tornado, storm, tsunami,

radiation etc.

Public transport problem?

Spending many hours to get from your work to your house? Would you do that when
there is affordable housing near your work?
Its either spending Billions on futile infrastructure improvements or building
affordable homes near the city.
For densely populated and economically progressive cities like Manila, Cebu etc. the
solution is clear.

Of course an affordable community have to include open spaces, proper water,

electricity, healthcare and education; a full-facility low-income housing town planning
should respect nature, democracy and tradition.

Great business opportunities; retirement investment Philippines

The Philippine government maybe can not provide enough manufactured houses; so let
them enable us and others (private developers and joint ventures) to help.

We also need micro housing finance companies, who offer loans to financially excluded
people with work but without formal documentation of their earnings, like ambulant

Lean Construction in the Philippines: We focus on two things; housing factory

production and motivating our employees. By continuous education on delivering value
to our clients, and involvement in every aspect of our company created INTERESTED
workers which is the number one importance to survive as a business.
