Conventional construction
Use of concrete bases, floors, columns and beams, with bricks walls build in place.
It is the most popular building system used in Israel.

Prefabricate construction
In this kind of system, the parts of the house are fabricated in a factory so that construction consist mainly in assembling and uniting standardized parts for columns, concrete beam, walls, floor, roof, even security room.
The big advantage in this kind of construction is time of construction.
The disadvantage could be the lack of flexibility in architectural design, and to make waterproof in the building’s joints

Light building with metallic structure
The construction is done with metallic structure on a base of concrete floor.
The rest of the floor is done with metallic structure, and concrete.
The internal walls are made of drywalls with acoustic and thermic isolation.
The external walls are made of several, and different layers.
The internal walls are made in dry walls Layers for acoustic and thermic isolation, and external layer manufactured in different manners according to the manufacturer or factory. Those walls have in general a width of 15 cm.
The finishing could be done with frieze and paint or with recover of stone or brocks.
The fast construction is the big advantage of this kind of construction, better isolation that in the conventional building, flexibility in design, and future changes in the building.

Light construction with wood structure
It is a similar way of construction as the metallic structure with the difference that in this case we are talking about wood structure.
It has the same advantages than the metallic, but the disadvantage could be that the wood could have troubles with bugs; therefore, it may need periodic treatment.
