Modern Construction Technology:
The NowHouse Project –
Our team developed the concept for the green, high-technology, sustainable, wireless, off-the-grid NowHouse demonstration smart home in the San Francisco Giants Stadium. The two story high, 2200 sq. ft. home took 35 days from bare ground to move-in ready using modern green building technologies. The building was donated to Mayor Gavin Newsom, picked-up up as one unit, wheel mounted, rolled across the SF Giants parking lot, shoved onto a barge at the edge of the SF Bay, sailed down the bay to Candlestick Park, rammed into the shore, and a bridge was built. It was rolled off the barge and mounted on a permanent foundation at the Alice Griffith Community Center where it remains today as a permanent community center as a gift to the City of San Francisco.
We arranged to donate the project to the City of San Francisco, via Mayor Gavin Newsom, and the structure is now permanently installed at the Alice Griffith Community Center where it has provided career resources to the community in a green, sustainable, energy efficient structure.
