North Coast Builder Exchange
The North Coast Builders Exchange (NCBE) is an organization dedicated to serving the construction industry in our area. Headquartered in Santa Rosa, it is a membership organization committed to helping connect valuable resources to victims of the fires. Their website has a directory, and helpful links to relevant information regarding rebuilding.
NCBE members include licensed contractors and other firms – such as architects, engineers, and building suppliers – who are affiliated with the construction industry. NCBE members specialize in every aspect of construction: from new residential and commercial construction to remodeling and repairs to existing homes and businesses. You can search their directory online for a full range of design and building needs.
Modular(not manufactured) construction is a process in which a building is constructed off-site, under controlled plant conditions, using the same materials and designing to the same codes and standards as conventionally built facilities – but in about half the time. Buildings are produced in “modules” that when put together on site, reflect the identical design intent and specifications of the most sophisticated site-built facility.
