BROOKLYN, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SG Blocks, Inc. (NASDAQ: SGBX), a leading designer, innovator and fabricator of container-based structures (“SG Blocks”), has secured a major workforce housing project in Sullivan County, New York, representing the second largest project in company history.
SG Blocks has been commissioned to design and build a four-building, 183,000-square foot multi-story, multi-family workforce housing development in Sullivan County, New York, representing an estimated revenue opportunity of $29 million. This complex will be built to house low- to middle-income households. SG Blocks will provide the services of a turn-key development manager for this project, including architectural engineering and design, project administration and building systems work.
The workforce housing development will target employees for a newly built $1.2 billion destination resort that includes: an 18-story hotel and a casino and entertainment complex with approximately 100,000 square feet of casino floor, an entertainment village, golf course and waterpark. The hotel and casino will feature more than 10 varied bar and restaurant experiences, including fine dining and an Italian steakhouse created by celebrity chef Scott Conant, and year-round live entertainment at the 2,500-seat event center.
“We are proud to announce another major workforce housing development project, representing the second largest in company history,” stated Paul Galvin, Chairman and CEO of SG Blocks. “The National Multifamily Housing Council expects that 4.5 million new apartments will need to be built in the U.S. by 2030, particularly in the affordable housing sector. Our modular approach to construction enables a faster time to market and notable cost savings for these types of projects, allowing innovative developers to rapidly address new market opportunities.
“Our growing construction backlog, which currently sits at 715,000 square feet, stands as a testament to the value that the market places on our technology, and we expect to recognize revenue from this project starting in the second half of 2018. We look forward to continuing to provide visionary developers with our eco-friendly, economical and safe housing alternative,” concluded Galvin.
Founded in 2007, SG Blocks was listed on Nasdaq in June 2017. It utilizes code-engineered cargo shipping containers to construct and provide safe, strong and green structures and environments. Instead of consuming new steel and lumber, the firm capitalizes on the structural engineering and design parameters a shipping container must meet and repurposes them for use in building. This unique methodology is transformative and delivers to its customers a sustainable and scalable solution that lowers their costs and increases lead-time to market. Clients have included Lacoste, Puma, Mini Cooper, Aman, Taco Bell, Marriott, Starbucks, Equinox and several branches of the U.S. military.
