SG Blocks Forms SGB Development Corp for National Housing Program
Company Executes National Level Property Development Entity
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- SG Blocks, Inc. (NASDAQ: SGBX) (“SG Blocks” or the “Company”), a leading designer, innovator and fabricator of container-based structures, announced today that it has launched its real property development arm, SGB Development Corp., whose mission is to maximize the delivery of low- and moderate-income housing. The Company will work with financial and lending partners to develop low- and moderate-income housing across the country.
SG Blocks, since inception, has had a steady stream of landowners and developers looking to partner due to our proprietary building system. Our projects have enhanced IRR’s because of the compression of time generated by building modularly.
The projects for SGB Development Corp. will be built at SG ECHO, the Company’s manufacturing headquarters in Durant, OK. SG Blocks recently announced a contract execution to acquire the 19-acre ECHO site. The Company intends to dedicate a 60,000 SF new manufacturing facility to deliver on the projects of SGB Development. In total, SG Blocks anticipates building out 350,000 SF of additional manufacturing space on the Durant, OK campus.
The SG Blocks modular process saves approximately 50 percent in time which produces enhanced IRR, lower soft costs and faster occupancy. We will target projects that will bring single family homes and apartments that are both affordable and rapidly available.
“We continue to be disciplined in the execution of our strategic plan of which SGB Development is a major component. We will deliver America safe and green homes that are affordable and able to stand up to earthquakes and hurricanes,” Paul Galvin, CEO and Chairman noted. “By partnering with local investors, lenders and developers, we are enabled to expand our network and partner with the best developers in the U.S. We are proud to say that our homes will be made in the USA, by humans.”
