This report, prepared for the Costa Rican affiliate of Habitat for Humanity, is intended to present a conclusive study that examines cost, time, quality, and social and environmental implications of six low-cost construction systems. If the recommendations that this project concludes upon are put into practice by Habitat for Humanity, the cost and time that is necessary to construct a house will decrease, while quality will increase, and social and environmental factors will not be disturbed.
