BROOKLYN, N.Y.—SG Blocks, Inc., a leading designer, fabricator and innovator of container-based structures, has signed a $25 million contract for a multi-thousand module order with Phoenix Hotel & Hospitality. The purchase order represents the largest retail module contract to date for SG Blocks. The modules will be designed, prefabricated and delivered to locations across the United States, where they will be installed by the customer. SG Blocks has already commenced work on the project in the fourth quarter of 2018.
“This project represents many months of work and we believe it to be a significant step forward in the continued growth of SG Blocks and an opportunity to participate in the launch of an exciting concept across the United States,” stated Paul Galvin, Chairman and CEO of SG Blocks. “At the customer’s request, the exact rollout plan is confidential, but we will provide updates on project completions in our quarterly filings. We expect deliveries to begin in the first quarter of 2019 and realized over 18 months. By utilizing our product, Phoenix Hotel & Hospitality will be able to complete its deployment quicker than using traditional construction methods, and also benefit from its efficiency and eco-friendliness.”
In addition to the initial purchase order, Phoenix Hotel and Hospitality envisions a multi-year deployment of this product with SG Blocks as its exclusive partner.
SG Blocks utilizes code-engineered cargo shipping containers to construct and provide safe, durable and environmentally-friendly structures. It has an exclusive ESR number, which was granted by the International Code Council and ensures its ability to meet and exceed all international building codes. Clients have included Starbucks, Marriott, Taco Bell, Aman, Equinox and several branches of the U.S. military.
SG Blocks also recently formed SG Residential, which focuses on the sales and financing of single-family container-based modular homes. Earlier in 2018, the firm also signed an exclusive design partnership agreement with world-renowned architecture and design practice Grimshaw Architects.
