GreenSteel is the structural core and shell of an SG Blocks building SG Blocks completes shipment and installation of all container units for new restaurant L

ong Island, NY — S G Blocks (SGBX), a premier innovator and designer of container-based structures announced it has completed the shipment and installation of its GreenSteel product for the new Bareburger restaurant that will open in the spring of 2015 on Long Island. “Our goal was to ensure Bareburger had its new struc- ture in place as soon as pos- sible to get them to market much quicker than with con- ventional construction,” said Paul Galvin , chairman and CEO of SG Blocks. “Bare- burger chose a unique, envi- ronmentally favorable design which will have the restaurant up and running in the coming weeks.” GreenSteel is the structural core and shell of an SG Blocks building and the Bareburger will be a two-story, 11-con- tainer restaurant located at 395 South Oyster Bay Rd., Plainview, NY. SG Blocks de- livered the GreenSteel contain- ers – which were prefabricated in Jacksonville, FL – less than three months after the partner- Kinsley Construction conc ludes Dol lar General distribution center READING, PA — Kinsley Construction completed construction of a new regional distribution center for Dollar General in Bethel Twp. The one million s/f facility is de- signed to serve over 1,000 Dol- lar General stores throughout the northeast. Designed by Leo A. Daly Architects , the building in- corporates several energy- saving features such as LED lighting and a computerized energy management system that automatically controls lighting and interior climate to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. A unique feature of the proj- ect is the siphonic roof drain system. This relatively new concept is engineered to create a suction effect which siphons water off the roof at a high velocity. The design requires fewer drains and eliminates external downspouts. Because all horizontal piping is in- stalled flat, roof slopes can be reduced, which increases the building clear-height and min- imizes the excavation needed for underground piping. n

ship was announced. “Since opening our first res- taurant nearly six years ago, a key element of the Bareburger philosophy has focused on sus- tainability. We use energy ef- ficient equipment and lighting in our restaurants, reclaimed materials for our furniture and fixtures, and we design our menu and operational practices to reduce waste,” said John Simeonidis, Jr ., chief brand officer, and co-founder of Bare- burger. “We’re constantly research- ing ways to minimize our im- pact on the environment. We started looking at using ship-

ping containers two years ago. After several design iterations and a lot of learning we’ll be opening our newest Bareburger restaurant in Plainview which we see as a natural extension of howwe approach our business.” SG Blocks, Inc. is an innova- tor in advancing and promoting the use of code-engineered cargo shipping containers for safe and sustainable construction. The firm offers a product that exceeds many standard building code requirements, and also supports developers, architects, builders and owners in achieving greener construction, faster execution, and stronger buildings. n
