FISHERS, Ind., September 19, 2022 /3BL Media/ - Land Betterment Corporation (“Land Betterment” or the “Company”), an environmental solutions company fostering positive impact through upcycling former coal mining and industrial sites to create sustainable community development and job creation, is pleased to share a video story about how working together with Community Ventures of Kentucky and other local partners, they were able to deploy ekō Solutions container homes rapidly to the victims of the December 12, 2021 western Kentucky tornados.

Watch the inspirational video here.

ekō homes are manufactured to strict quality management processes in order to meet specific national and state building codes. These upcycled shipping container homes are high quality because like modular homes, they are built in a factory consistent “assembly line” method. Additionally, ekō homes are made in a climate-controlled facility following a strict quality control plan according to international and state building codes. This standardized method of home building allows ekō Solutions to manufacture homes in speeds upwards of 7 homes per week. ekō Solutions takes special care in the design and execution of the required work. Each detail is focused on from the faucets used in the kitchens and bathrooms, to the specific location of electrical outlets.  Because ekō homes need to withstand the wear and tear of being transported (in their previous life as an ocean shipping container), lifted, and moved, means they are built to be much stronger in order to successfully pass building standards and codes.
