NEW YORK, Aug. 19, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SG Blocks (OTCQB:SGBX), a premier innovator and designer of container-based structures, today announced it has signed an agreement with the U.S. Navy to construct two modularized units.
The two 20-foot modules will provide supplemental office space that can be used either pier-side or ship-side. Each unit will be self-contained and non-combustible and will augment management space during shipyard periods.
"We are thrilled to have been selected for a new project with the U.S. Navy in our long-standing relationship with them," stated Paul Galvin, Chairman and CEO of SG Blocks. "Our process uses a sustainable material that is exceptionally durable and our continuous engagement with the U.S. Navy underscores the quality of our product and expertise."
The units are in production and expected to be completed by mid-September. The agreement is part of SG Blocks' rapid response production initiative, through which the firm finalizes projects with a quicker fabrication time.
