BROOKLYN, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- SG Blocks, Inc. (NASDAQ: SGBX), a leading designer, innovator and fabricator of container-based structures, has been selected by Irontek, a collaborative and dynamic co-working space for small businesses and entrepreneurs, to design and manufacture container-based cubicles for its expanding flexible workspace located in Beloit, Wisconsin. SG Blocks is supplying 25 of its GreenSteel™ product, the structural core and shell of an SG Blocks building, that will create 8,000 square feet of new office space for Irontek. Delivery is expected in the second quarter of 2018 and SG Blocks will work with a local company to finish building the cubicles.
“The momentum with our container-based solutions in the flexible workspace vertical continues and supported by our new collaboration with Irontek,” stated Paul Galvin, Chairman and CEO of SG Blocks. “Innovative thinkers like Irontek see the value proposition our solution presents when they need to move fast to keep up with customer demand. With expected delivery in the second quarter of 2018, and go-live by end of summer 2018, you can start to envision the disruptive nature of the SG Blocks solution versus traditional construction.”
Irontek is part of a larger 500,000 square foot facility, Ironworks, which houses a YMCA, HCP office, eBates, Golf Lab and First National Bank, among other businesses. Several started within Irontek and continued to grow into a larger space.
