BOISE, ID January 15, 2019
Prefab Logic, a leader in the volumetric modular construction industry, has added Doug Pill to its growing leadership team as VP of Operations. Pill succeeds COO and Co-Founder Rick Murdock, who becomes CEO and Co-Founder of Autovol, a first-of-its kind automated factory being designed by Murdock, Prefab Logic CEO Curtis Fletcher, and the Prefab Logic team.
Pill brings many years of experience in modular, including executive experience at Guerdon Enterprises a pioneering leader in modular-built multifamily and hospitality projects.
“It’s an exciting time to be in the modular industry, and there’s no opportunity more exciting than with Prefab Logic as they continue to complete volumetric modular construction projects, and help new modular factories get up and running,” Pill said.
Fletcher, who continues leading Prefab Logic as CEO, sees both the addition of Pill and Murdock’s transition to Autovol as positive developments for Prefab Logic and its customers.
“We found the ideal person to take Prefab Logic to the next step operationally,” Fletcher said. “Doug also has a working history with Rick that will quickly forge a strong partnership and line of communication with Autovol.”
Prefab Logic works with leading developers of apartment complexes and hotels where modern modular approaches can dramatically reduce cost, labor burden, and time-to-completion while increasing quality. With an unmatched level of experience in volumetric modular construction, the Prefab Logic team also helps investors and owners develop best-in-class modular factories. According to Fletcher, the 400,000-square-foot Autovol factory currently being built in Nampa, Idaho, will use automation on an unprecedented scale as a Prefab Logic factory partner.
“As we help the Autovol factory develop, we plan to share learnings with our factory associates. It’s a win-win for them because we’ll be proving our methods and processes in the Autovol factory, putting other factories a step ahead on the automation learning curve.”
Construction preparations at the Autovol site began in October, 2018. The factory is set to be operational in early 2020. Treasure Valley community leaders will be briefed in upcoming events soon to be announced.
