April 20, 2022, Louisville, CO – Studio Shed, the leader in accessory dwelling units (ADUs) and modern prefabricated backyard structures, has been recognized as 2022 Builder/Manufacturer of the Year by CompanyWeek's Colorado Manufacturing Awards (CMA) program. Since 2016, the CMAs have recognized industry leaders for their critical roles in shaping American manufacturing across an array of sectors.
“Building & Construction Manufacturer of the Year, Studio Shed, represents everything that's great about Colorado manufacturing, from the vision of the company’s leadership to the innovation reflected in its market-leading living spaces," stated Bart Taylor, CompanyWeek founder and co-presenter of the CMAs.
In 2021, Studio Shed saw an enormous surge in demand for its home office designs and ADUs, as the COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the need for additional space in homes across the country and municipalities relaxed zoning and permitting regulations for homeowners. To meet this demand, Studio Shed tripled production capacity at its Boulder County facility, adding industrial equipment, fabrication stations, and staff, and expanded its product lines and national footprint with the help of Colorado's abundance of high-quality talent and favorable location for shipping logistics.
“Thanks to our amazing team in Colorado and our growing network of professional installers across the country, Studio Shed was able to increase our production capacity dramatically last year and, in turn, we decreased turnaround times on our most popular products - namely ADUs that are commonly used as ‘granny flats’ or guest suites and quick-ship home office one-room designs,” said Jeremy Nova, creative director and co-founder, Studio Shed. “We are honored to receive this award.”
Studio Shed leads the ADU market nationwide and announced its North American expansion into Canada last summer. The company has been able to avoid significant supply chain and shipping delays with Colorado’s efficient shipping lines that run through the state and Studio Shed’s climate-controlled factory to create products in-house.
The company recently launched new customer shopping experience features including an innovative virtual showroom, online location-based permitting tools, and a comprehensive financing platform that allows homeowners to review numerous payment plan options within minutes.
