Headquartered in Stevensville, MD, International Green Structures (IGS) is striving to be the global leader of sustainable housing solutions by providing affordable, durable building materials and structures. IGS offers a variety of pre-engineered designs ranging from single and multifamily homes, large scale worker housing, and transitional shelters for natural or man-made disasters. Ideal clients are construction companies, developers, non-profits, to emerging nations, communities, oil and gas mining companies, and corporations.

IGS manufactures sustainable Compressed Agricultural Fiber (CAF) Panels. The process starts in the field with the straw left after the harvest of rice and wheat. The straw has little nutritional value for feedstock and is normally burned and or tilled under. IGS procures the straw from the farmer, thereby creating a second cash crop and compresses the straw into durable, strong CAF Panels which are cut into specific lengths for architecturally approved designs. At the build site, the CAF panels are fit to pre - engineered steel framing systems to create IGStructures for houses, schools and healthcare facilities. IGStructures are easy to assemble and pre-engineered designs allow for quicker, no waste construction and cost savings across multiple sectors.

CAF technology has been used globally for over 70 years and has no long term impact on the environment. IGS has significantly improved the product and assembly process allowing for easy transportation and assembly at the job site within days of arrival. In 2008, the design was approved by the US Federal Government as a post disaster housing technology solution. IGSM-K and IGSM- W (their worldwide manufacturing facility) has exported product and successfully built IGStructures in the United States, Kenya, Nigeria, Ghana, Uganda, Vanuatu, Colombia, Guatemala and India. IGS is headquartered in Stevensville, MD and manufactures and exports from IGSM-K (Thika, Kenya) and IGSM-W in Whitewright, Texas.
