SG Blocks, Inc., a provider of construction solutions utilizing code-engineered cargo shipping containers, has executed a $1.5 million agreement with a U.S. Navy contractor for an additional delivery of the unique SG Blocks multistory hoteling system that it will lease to the U.S. Navy for use aboard aircraft carriers during dry dock. The multistory structures will be used by civilian contractors for office space and other purposes during ship maintenance and repairs and is expected to accelerate ship restoration time. Under this contract, SG Blocks anticipates delivering 25 new structures and refurbishing seven SG Blocks structures delivered under prior orders. Since 2010, SG Blocks has delivered 46 similar structures to the same contractor for use by the U.S. Navy.

"We continue to execute well on our strategy to grow the company and expand our client base with government, military, commercial, and residential clients. This additional engagement involving our unique building solutions illustrates the confidence the U.S. Navy has in the quality and design of our construction. The continued growth in other segments of the market validates the increase in appeal and application of our designs and building methods," said Paul Galvin, CEO of SG Blocks.
