Basement finishing

I am beginning the planning for a finished basement. A three year old home, poured walls and floor. We have noticed some mold beginning to grow on some surfaces and that has been addressed with a dehumidifier and a better HVAC unit to accomodate the nearly doubled living space. What I am looking for is an alternative to wood frame and drywall for these will always end up as mold food. Owens-Corning gave us a quote for their basement system but was prohibitively expensive and quite honestly, UGLY! Looking for suggestions. Thanks.

The proper way to deal with this is to control the humidity in the space. A dehumidifier and central AC can do this if implemented properly.

Don't even consider finishing the basement with ANY material unless you can control the humidity level in the basement.
