ABOUT THE ISRAELI BUILDING CENTER

The Israel Real Estate Center.

Israel’s hub of construction, design, real estate and infrastructure, since 1969.

 

Background

The Israel Real Estate Center (formerly known as The Israel Building Center) was founded in 1969 as a government company engaged in disseminating knowledge and information to the construction industry in Israel, subject to the Ministry of Construction and Housing.

Since its establishment, The Israeli Real Estate Center served for 3 decades as the main address for the general public on any issue related to housing, construction or renovations, and gained a great reputation even among senior professionals in the industry.

During its years as a government company, The Israeli Real Estate Center initiated and promoted construction and design exhibitions, housing fairs, seminars for professional audiences and real estate entrepreneurs, and also offered courses, training and accompaniment programs to any individuals who wished to build or renovate their home.

From government company, to a leading business entity in its field.

After 30 years of extensive activity, the government decided to privatize The Israel Real Estate Center. The new owner, The Building College – which provided training and courses in the field of construction – merged its activities with The Israel Real Estate Center, and currently operates extensively as The Israel Real Estate Center College.

The newly privatized Israel Real Estate Center operated on the Kibbutz Ga’ash campus until mid-2014, offering its services to thousands of families each year as a hub for builders and renovators, until it moved to its current location in Netanya.

 

The Israel Real Estate Center today

The Israel Real Estate Center is located in the Netanya Stadium, spanning 2,400sqm of innovation and knowledge. The Center also includes the “Transparent House” – a study and training center for architects, designers and their clients who are in the process of building and renovating, which includes a spectacular display of the latest and most innovative technologies in the construction industry, enabling them to get a hands-on impression of how things actually work.

Apart from the Transparent House, the new Israel Real Estate Center includes unique display areas, and a dedicated team of experts that includes engineers, architects and other construction professionals offers qualified consulting services to individuals who are in the process of building or renovating.

The Israel Real Estate Center also includes the campus of the Israel Real Estate Center College, which  holds courses for private and professional audiences. The Center is also the home of Ultima, the well known design school.
