Accelerator

Plug & Play Building Standards

We are working with private businesses, local communities and economic development partners to develop a turnkey, fully engineered template for development of workforce housing projects of 25, 50 and 100 units that includes all utilities of water, waste, power, broadband and cryptocurrency. 

Third-party certification will enable rapid approval of proposals for development of workforce housing by communities experiencing personnel and resource shortages within their planning departments.

Standards



Innovation District

We are working to establish shared, specialty facilities in collaboration with the private sector, government agencies and educational institutions that will support the design, development, prototyping, testing and small-scale production of innovative housing and utilities for rural communities.
