SG Blocks and Geis Companies Form Teaming Agreement
Geis Companies to provide design build services, perform all civil work and installation services
NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / July 15, 2019 / SG Blocks, Inc. (NASDAQ: SGBX), a leading designer, fabricator and innovator of container-based structures, and Geis Companies, North America's premier design/build company headquartered in Streetsboro, Ohio, have formed a strategic alliance which will enhance the design, development and installation of steel-based modular projects.
The first joint project will be the 302-unit multifamily project in Sullivan County, New York. Projected Construction costs in the first phase of the project are approximately $22 million and the total construction costs of the project are approximately $55 million.
Under terms of the teaming agreement, Geis will provide construction related services, perform all site and civil work and installation services. In addition, Geis has bonding capacity up to $50 million, which is beneficial for SGBX customers, as it potentially reduces loan guarantees and cash requirements for certain projects.
“We continue to build out our network of industry leading partners to streamline and accelerate the expansion of our steel-based modular projects,” noted Paul Galvin, Chairman and CEO of SG Blocks. “The Geis Companies are leaders in the industry, with more than 50 years of building design and construction experience developing projects from 5 to 1,000 acres. This relationship will enhance and accelerate our ability to design and deliver projects on-time and on-budget, and Geis’ ability to bond large projects will allow customers to accelerate development of their projects.”
Jeffrey Martin, President at Geis Companies added, “Geis has always been an innovator, and establishing a relationship with a leading innovator like SG Blocks will establish us squarely in the steel-based modular segment of the industry.”
