Project Manager

Company Profile
Plant Prefab is the first Certified B Corporation™ prefabricated home builder dedicated to sustainable design, materials, and operations. We're creating a paradigm shift across the home building industry by custom prefabricating single-family and multi-family homes for individuals, architects, and developers in half the time of traditional builders.

Our patented Plant Building System™ enables us to efficiently construct almost any design, by any architect. Combining advanced engineering with customizable Plant Panels™ and Plant Modules™, the Plant Building System provides greater design flexibility, quality control, and time and cost efficiencies than both site-based construction and conventional prefabricated approaches. Clients can work with any architect they choose, including Plant’s award-winning, in-house design studio.

Funding for Plant was provided by Amazon, Obvious Ventures, and others. Nearly thirty Plant projects have been certified LEED for Homes Platinum or Gold, including the first home ever to achieve Platinum certification. Plant projects have garnered significant industry recognition including the AIA’s top sustainability award, Architizer’s Jury and People Choice Awards, Green Builder Magazine’s Home of Year, Business 2.0’s ‘World’s 11 Coolest Products,’ and Businessweek’s “Architectural Wonders of the World.”
