A leading designer, innovator and fabricator of container-based structures, continues to advance its agenda of delivering affordable housing and today announced that its licensee, SG Residential, has closed on the site and plans to commence construction of two projects in Puerto Rico to help address the housing crisis following Hurricane Maria in 2017.

SG Residential has acquired a development site in Guayama, Puerto Rico, where it expects by the end of Q1 2020 to commence work to complete and bring to market 55 concrete shells and construct 128 new three-bedroom, two-bathroom homes.

SG Blocks has obtained the approval from the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico for use of its innovative, container-based product in Puerto Rico.

“Our product offers an ideal environmental solution for the region, since it is hurricane and earthquake resistant,” said Paul Galvin, Chairman and CEO of SG Blocks. “Designed with the harshest of physical environments in mind, our container-based units can withstand extreme weather and provide residents with safe, enduring homes.”

SG Blocks utilises 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, supporting its ability to meet and exceed all international building codes.
