Design Advantages Our Built on Site System blends the benefits of mass manufacturing with on-site assembly. This cuts costs by 40% and increases production capacity tenfold in the factory. Our built on-site systems engineering allows for easy lego like assembly of the units on-site. This collapses the manpower cost & time required in traditional construction methods. It also eliminates the large overheads costs of pre assembling entire buildings in a factory. As well as the high costs of shipping buildings to job sites which requires commissioning expensive cranes. BOSS Cubez is the fastest and most affordable solution to housing the homeless everywhere.
Manufacturer Identified Yes
Used for shelter in the U.S.? Yes.
Prior use examples We’ve sold Cubez for 7 years online and through Home Depot to customers looking for cabins and tiny houses. Our first housing project for the houseless was in Santa Cruz where we worked with a developer on a community for 112 residents. We are now working with the city of Santa Barbara and San Francisco on similar communities.
Prior use comments BOSS Cubez provides high quality cost saving construction and architecturally fit design. Unlike sheds or containers, the cubez have different designs, colors, and configurations to enhance the beauty of local communities.
