workspace vertical continues and supported by our new collaboration with
Irontek,” stated Paul Galvin, Chairman and CEO of SG Blocks. “Innovative
thinkers like Irontek see the value proposition our solution presents
when they need to move fast to keep up with customer demand. With
expected delivery in the second quarter of 2018, and go-live by end of
