Safe & Green Holdings Receives Crucial International Code Council (ICC), Recertification for Use of Shipping Containers in Modular Construction

Shipping container used in modular construction

MIAMI, FL, May 24, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Safe & Green Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ: SGBX) (“Safe & Green Holdings” or the “Company”), a leading developer, designer, and fabricator of modular structures, announced that the Company has received recertification of its ESR for certification and use of shipping containers in modular construction from the International Code Council (ICC).

With over 90 years of experience, ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) is the industry leader in performing technical evaluations of building products, materials, and systems for code compliance. Due to its diligence and unparalleled engineering experience, ICC-ES is the most widely accepted evaluation agency in the nation. Agencies use evaluation reports to help determine code compliance and enforce building regulations, while manufacturers use reports as evidence that their products (and this is especially important if the products are new and innovative) meet code requirements and warrant regulatory approval.

Paul Galvin, Chairperson and CEO of Safe & Green Holdings, remarked, "We are pleased that the ICC Evaluation Service has renewed our ESR (3764) which allows us to continue to certify intermodal containers as approved building materials in our projects. It is the foundation of our modular program to repurpose containers. As a manufacturer, securing the ESR certification is pivotal as it eases the acceptance of our containers by building departments, thereby streamlining the approval process for projects where these products are deployed. In 2017 Safe & Green Holdings Corp. (formerly SG Blocks, Inc.) received the first ESR certification for a recycled product to be re-used as a construction material. The application was handled by CTO Stevan Armstrong and David Cross, Senior VP of Sales and Business Development.”
