Revolutionizing Building in Sonoma County
In June 2019, Habitat Sonoma County secured the site for The Habitat Center—the region’s first nonprofit industrialized residential construction factory and trades training center. Computer-aided systems at the Center will convert construction plans to panelized wall assembly instructions. In The Habitat Center’s factory, teams of staff and volunteers will produce wall panels for use at Habitat builds throughout Sonoma County, ultimately enabling Habitat to decrease build costs and construction timelines.
Through Habitat’s educational partnerships with Santa Rosa Junior College and the North Coast Builders Exchange, The Habitat Center will train the next generation of home builders. These partnerships include both classroom instruction and hands-on training in modern construction methods at the Center.

Industrialized Residential Construction Facility and Trades Training Campus
The Habitat Center Opening Late Summer 2019!
Habitat for Humanity will open the first non-profit industrialized residential construction facility and trades training campus in Sonoma County in mid-2019. Teams of volunteers and students from local trades programs will build wall panels at the new facility and will help assemble the prefabricated panels at Habitat’s home-build sites across the County. The campus will increase Habitat’s year-round build capacity and help develop the next generation of construction experts. To address the severe shortage of skilled construction labor in the North Bay, Habitat is partnering with the Santa Rosa Junior College Construction Trades program and the North Coast Builders Exchange North Bay Construction Corps to train high school and junior college trades students at the new Factory and Learning Center.
