5311 Clinton Drive, Building #8, Houston, TX 77020
USGBC Texas Gulf Coast Region and the City of Houston's Green Building Resource Center invite you to the first green building tour of 2023. Join other sustainability and green building professionals in touring Box Prefab's prefabrication factory.
Pre-fabricated housing is beginning to become mainstream again. Mobile homes have been an industry for a while now, but shipping pre-assembled parts of a conventional house to be configured onsite is catching up. Cost has always been a concern, but the quality advantage is becoming a sales tool now that conventional housing is facing challenges on all fronts. Boxprefab is a Houston-based entity with founders from the design professions who wanted to more tightly hold the quality of the finished product rather than hand that off to a conventional builder. Rame and Russell Hruska will show what they do and how their product is manufactured (with green building methods), delivered, and installed.
Get a sneak peek at some of the assembly processes at 3:30 pm, or arrive at 4:00 pm for the official warehouse tour.
