The Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority (KEDFA) has awarded tax incentives to two businesses, including $20,000 for a $1.2 million operation that would utilize prefab to provide homes and light commercial buildings in five states.
Blueframe Design + Build is the brainchild of James C. Burris Architects, and plans to use advanced prefab technology to create energy-efficient buildings in an environmentally friendly manner.
The company is planning to make prefab homes for senior housing developments, multi-family housing developments, single-family homes and light commercial projects in Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio, Indiana and Georgia.
KEDFA also granted $1.4 million in tax incentives to Templar Manufacturing on a $5.3 million investment in Logan County for manufacturing emergency shelters to be used throughout the world in the areas that have been devastated by natural disasters.
The company is also focused on the development of “safe rooms.”
The Daily Business News recently covered Champion Homes and their opening of a 100,000 square foot facility in Benton, Kentucky. KEDFA approved tax incentives for Champion of up to $2.25 million through the Kentucky Business Investment program to encourage investment and job growth in the community. ##
