Alex Hutcheson – ekō Solutions’ Technical Team Leader

Hello – I’m Stephanie Conzelman, Stakeholder Engagement Director with Land Betterment. We are excited to share the third interview in the series titled, “Meet the ekō Solutions Management Team.” 

This week, I met with Alex Hutcheson, ekō Solutions Technical Team Leader. I am seeing a consistent theme each time I interview a member of the ekō Solutions management team which is, they are doing things that that have not been done before in the shipping container housing market and the more challenging the better.  Alex comes from generations of builders and welders and brings his “can do” attitude to work every day. Alex told me that “Traditional construction has been the same forever, with minimal improvements.  But, here, at ekō Solutions, we are innovating daily.” Did you know that we use 3D printers and robotics to build the shipping container dwellings? Daily, Alex’s team comes up with crazy, out of the box ideas and most often the team is able to figure out how to make these ideas come to life. The full interview can be viewed here.

ekō Solutions, a division of Land Betterment a Certified B Corporation, is rapidly growing and now offers a full array of dwelling solutions for commercial, recreational, residential and crisis recovery using customized up-cycled shipping containers. These sustainable and energy-efficient structures combine contemporary design with practicality.

With growth it is so important to have the right team in place in order to move the Company forward in the smartest possible way. I think at the end of this 5-part video series, which will be spread out over the next several months, you will agree with us, that we have an amazing and capable team ready to bring our innovative up-cycled shipping container dwellings to market.
