For those who are in a hurry to finish their dream house, there’s a new building method that will not only make construction time shorter but will also const less. This is the Vazbuilt building construction system, developed by Filipino inventor Edgardo Vasquez. Vasquez’ invention earned him the World Intellectual Property Award in 1995 in Geneva, Switzerland.
Think about the Vazbuilt as a method of using ready-made walls, posts, columns, and roofs that can be assembled to created the house you wanted. This reduces construction time and labor cost. With as much as only P50,000, on can already Vazbuilt system uses prefabricated (ready-made) technology not only for house construction but also for the construction of commercial buildings.
According to Vasquez, in building houses, one should consider the “pride factor”—it should give fried to Filipinos. Vazbuilt system also offers different housing models to choose from. And the materials are all Philippine-made.
What’s amazing about Vazbuilt is that it promotes a do-it-yourself system. In fact, four women from Baguio were able to build their own house using Vazbuilt. The project was completed using over-the-counter materials; posts, panels, columns, Tegula roof tiles—part by part, until the whole housing components were completed.
The Filipino Inventors Society acknowledged Vazquez’s invention by giving him the Golden Medal Award as Outstanding Inventor in 1993.
