Manteca, Calif. – October 13, 2015 – CHPS is pleased to announce that American Modular Systems (AMS), one of the nation’s leading modular manufacturers, will sponsor the CHPS PreFAB Criteria. AMS is the creator of GEN7 Schools, a premier line of high performance prefabricated classrooms.
“AMS and GEN7 are trailblazers in the green school movement, and we’re proud to partner with them on our CHPS PreFAB program,” said Bill Orr, CHPS Executive Director. “GEN7 was the first classroom designated as a CHPS PreFAB product, and its superior quality and advanced sustainable design align perfectly with our CHPS PreFAB Criteria.”
“We’re committed to continuing to work with CHPS to provide an inspirational 21st Century learning environment for students of all ages,” said Tony Sarich, co-founder of AMS and GEN7. “We’ve seen the difference learning in a healthy, high performance building makes, and we want to make it cost-effective for school districts to give all students that opportunity.”

AMS created the GEN7 CHPS PreFAB classroom as a turnkey sustainable solution that saves schools time, money and paperwork by allowing them to purchase a DSA-Approved building pre-certified to meet CHPS’ high performance standards. GEN7 CHPS PreFAB classrooms are highly energy-efficient, proven to reduce energy usage by 60%, while exceeding the new California Title 24 by an average of 40% statewide.
“The GEN7 CHPS PreFAB label inspires trust,” Sarich said. “Independent third-party verification confirms that the classrooms perform as promised, helping school districts achieve their sustainability goals and giving students a comfortable, productive place to learn.”
