VP of Market Development – Architects
Amy Sims is a pioneer in housing design and construction, ushering in new standards of building efficiency and sustainability through her innovative work at the intersection of architecture and manufacturing. As co-founder and studio manager of the design firm LivingHomes, Sims worked with Ray Kappe to design the first home ever to achieve Platinum certification in the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED for Homes program.
In 2016 Sims helped launch housing prefabrication startup Plant Prefab and applied her technical design skills with her handson experiences in both site-based building and factory fabrication techniques to help develop the company’s innovative Plant Building System. Utilizing advanced engineering to drive efficiency and quality, the hybrid system is the first and only of its kind to combine panelized and modular building systems to fabricate any housing typology in any style of architecture 20-50% faster than site-based building with industry leading quality and minimal waste.
