INDIEDWELL TO FEATURE NEW HOUSING PROTOTYPE AT INNOVATIVE HOUSING SHOWCASE
WASHINGTON - The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the National Association of Homebuilders (NAHB) today announced indieDwell, a home builder that offers healthy homes and affordable homes to underserved communities, will exhibit a new housing prototype at the inaugural "Innovative Housing Showcase," June 1-5, 2019, on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.
The prototype will feature a building system that constructs high quality, sustainable, modular housing at extremely affordable prices.
"We're excited to feature innovators in housing and building technologies that are addressing some of the most pressing issues facing the housing industry, namely affordability and durability, through the use of new and innovative construction methods," said HUD Secretary Ben Carson.
"The housing affordability crisis is affecting both builders and consumers nationwide. We are honored to be co-hosting this event with HUD as we work together to find solutions to this growing problem," said Greg Ugalde, chairman of the National Association of Home Builders.
"We are thrilled to be participating in this first ever innovative housing showcase," said Peter Gombert, Executive Chairman of indieDwell. "indieDwell is a public benefit corporation with a mission to revolutionize the building industry by producing dwellings that not only better their occupants health and well-being, but simultaneously improve the health of the environment and empower community. Our homes are proudly built by our employee owners."
The Innovative Housing Showcase is a five-day event on the National Mall that will highlight an array of new technologies and building solutions.
