This study aimed to determine the Benefits of Six Storey-Low Rise Residential Building (LRB) in the Province of Nueva Ecija; Evaluation of the Proposed Socialize Housing Project for Low-Income Families. In Nueva Ecija, the employment of construction machinery in confined spaces, the existence of electricity lines close to the object of the house, and the presence of a substantial amount of bulk soil at the foot of the foundations all hampered the building process. This study utilized a descriptive research design wherein the questionnaire is structured based on the objectives of the study. Sampling is through Slovin formula in obtaining the number of respondents with 100 head of households. The findings revealed that most of the respondents had nuclear family structure having nine or/and more members. Most of them were tertiary level education and employed in industrial occupations. This has the implications of its benefits in terms of: (a) Better Standard of Living; (b) More Space with more FSI (Floor Space Index); (c) Lowers Energy Consumption; (d) Resilient; (e) Escape Plan; (f) Low Cost & Low Maintenance; (g) Community Living; and (h) Higher Resale Value.
