TORONTO, June 28, 2011 /CNW/ - Innovative Composites International Inc. (TSXV: IC) ("ICI" the "Company"), announced today that it has secured a purchase order for a 880 square foot EcoScape house to be constructed on the island of Antigua and serve as a show home for a large scale affordable housing program. ICI expects to provide more details on the number of units to be constructed as well as the timing of the program after a meeting with Antigua and Barbuda government officials scheduled for late July.

ICI's EcoScape houses are certified as earthquake and hurricane resistant, characteristics which are in very high demand in areas affected by natural disasters. A turn-key 880 square foot house can be erected in approximately two days by unskilled labour and without the use of any heavy machinery. ICI will use a local general contractor as well as local labour to build this and any other homes, thus creating much needed employment in Antigua and Barbuda.

The enhanced durability of EcoScape homes through resistance to rot, rust, mold, UV rays and insects makes them ideally suited for tropical conditions and a perfect solution for large scale affordable housing projects throughout the Caribbean.

"Currently demand for affordable housing in Antigua and Barbuda far exceeds supply. ICI's high quality and sustainable building system that can be erected in a short time with the use of local labour may be the feasible solution to our housing shortage", Dr. McChesney Emanuel, Consul General of Antigua and Barbuda - NY.

"This initial purchase in Antigua is further validation that our house is the perfect solution to the housing needs of the islands in the Caribbean. The ability to build EcoScape homes quickly at large scale adds to our confidence to grow our business in Antigua and elsewhere," said ICI President and CEO Terry Ball. "EcoScape's built-in features make it ideal for a tropical climate and the hurricane and earthquake resistance provides protection much needed in the region," he added.
