VISTA, Calif., Aug. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Eco Building Products, Inc., (OTCBB: ECOB) announced today the company has been awarded the lumber and labor framing contract to build "The West End Apartments". This four story project consists of 40 units specified as mixed-use apartment complex incorporating Eco Red Shield™ protection. This landmark project is the Company's first multi-family job located in Los Angeles, and is scheduled to commence in September of 2012.
The Company has been aggressively marketing the Eco Red Shield product, coupled with the services of E Build & Truss, targeting the multi-family, mixed-use projects, which are on the rise in the recovering construction market. Having completed one five story, mixed-use project, and in the process of another multi-story project in San Diego, the Company has leveraged our turn-key vertical plan, creating primary demand for our lumber protection into the Los Angeles market.
"This project for Essey Construction Company, Inc. is the first of many opportunities for ECOB to get into the explosive infill multi-family market in Los Angeles. Construction is located next to the 405 Freeway and 10 freeway interchange creating a great four story billboard using all red lumber, providing a great landmark for ECOB pushing into this explosive market," stated Steve Conboy, President and CEO, Eco Building Products. "These multi-family projects are one time build contracts, as opposed to sequenced sales driven housing developments, which will drive greater revenues for our company," added Conboy.
