Rebuilding for Homeowners
After a disaster, homeowners need recovery to be as prompt and predictable as possible in order to limit the amount of time they’re made to suffer the effects of displacement. SBP rebuilds for low-to-moderate income homeowners, placing a special focus on families with small children, the elderly, disabled persons, war veterans and the under-and uninsured.
SBP's proven-effective rebuilding model is based on the Toyota Production System (TPS) and is enhanced by AmeriCorps members and volunteer labor which enable SBP to rebuild disaster impacted homes in an average of 61 days, at 40% the cost of market rate contractors.
SBP's clients have one point of contact who work with them throughout the rebuilding process which ensures that they remain well informed at every stage of their recovery.
To further improve the speed and efficiency of our rebuilding, SBP recently partnered with Turner Construction on a pilot program to implement a streamlined, highly effective pre-fabricated building process. The majority of this work happens indoors, so changes in weather have little to no impact on our rebuilding work—which means we’re able to stay on track and not lose time due to forces beyond our control. Using this method we were recently able to build a new home from the foundation up for one of our clients in just 63 days. This pilot program will be rolled out in New Orleans and South Carolina.
