BuildLabs Featured in 27 East

June 27, 2024

BuildLabs was recently profiled in 27East, a digital publication powered by The Southampton Press, The East Hampton Press and The Sag Harbor Express. The article features our cofounder and operations director, Punit Chugh, who gives reporter Brendan J. O’Reilly a behind-the-scenes look at our building and tech processes.

In the feature, Chugh says he believes the BuildLabs method is thefuture of construction.

We are integrating what traditional construction does in an off-site facility. We assemble it seamlessly here. So that saves a lot of on-site time, management, transaction and costs. So when the project comes here, it’s a pure play of execution. There is not a lot of discussion. A team of four people are assembling this entire project.”

Chugh used the interview as an opportunity to showcase a simple yet tangible and meaningful proof of our sustainable construction practices, one of BuildLabs’ core values:

He pointed out the lone dumpster on the site, which was nowhere near full. “This is the only dumpster, 10-yard, that we have used from the start of the project,” he said. “And we have no waste, no extra cuts, nothing. All the elements are produced in our factory, and they come pristine ready to go.”

The article also delves into the use of eco-friendly materials. Sag Harbor architect Val Florio is also featured in the profile, where he praises BuildLabs for its use of glulam, which stands for glued laminated timber. BuildLabs gets its glulam from Denmark, where it is made with old-growth wood which has a guaranteed home lifespan of 100 years.

Material sand quality matter, especially when it comes to waterfront homes–bethey mega mansions or small scale ADUs.

If there was a hurricane or a big disaster, we always promise that this house built by us will be the last home standing,” Chugh said.
