SG Blocks, a premier designer, innovator and fabricator of container-based structures, today announced its President and Chief Operating Officer, Stevan Armstrong, will be presenting at the Offsite Construction Expo. The event will take place on September 21-22, 2016 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in downtown Washington, DC.
“I am looking forward to presenting at the upcoming Office Construction Expo,” stated Armstrong. “This will provide SG Blocks with the opportunity to educate industry professionals about our modular green product that is disrupting modern construction.”
Armstrong’s presentation, “Using Shipping Containers as Building Blocks,” will take place on September 21 at 3pm EDT. H will focus on how there are countless numbers of empty unused shipping containers around the world just sitting on shipping docks taking up space. After cargo has arrived, it’s often too expensive to ship empty containers back to their origin, resulting in a high surplus of empty shipping containers. Shipping containers are strong, corrosion resistant, and can reduce construction time by up to 40%. Hard and soft costs are lower as well, particularly in expensive urban and mid-rise markets. Containers can also meet building needs across diverse residential, industrial, commercial, and retail applications. Armstrong will lead an informative discussion on using shipping containers as building blocks in the construction of restaurants, offices, apartments, dorms, emergency shelters, homes and more.
Offsite Construction Expo will offer a focused presentation of the abilities of offsite construction across all markets. It will feature exhibits from offsite construction contractors, traditional contractors that have integrated offsite methods, offsite factories, transportation companies, architects, engineers, BIM suppliers, materials suppliers, and consultants of all types of offsite construction processes. Additionally, the expo will provide educational insights into offsite construction with multiple case studies presented each hour on the expo floor.
