When natural disasters strike, they leave many communities in dire need of help as they destroy homes and belongings. Some people are accommodated by relatives and friends as other receive rental aid. For others, the US government places them on manufactured housing units. Green Structure Homes (GSH) of Alabama, LLC have gone ahead to make sure that these structures have better safety enhancements. GSH is a Disaster Relief Construction Contractor based in Huntsville and was awarded a $28.5 M contract by FEMA to build homes for victims of Hurricane Harvey.
When announcing the news, GSH CEO Barbara Stokes said that the contract would involve making modular homes in eight states of Virginia, North Carolina, Louisiana, Alabama, Texas, Pennsylvania, Minnesota and Florida. GSH was founded in 2008 by Barbara Stokes and Scott Stokes and uses engineering, proprietary designs, and manufacturing techniques for the government and private sector clients.
