Barbara Stokes and her husband Scott founded Green Structures Homes in 2012 with the goal of providing a service that fulfilled a specific niche need. As the number of natural disasters continued to rise each year, Barbara Stokes saw that one of the worst things happening to these communities after a tragic natural disaster was the lack of sound, quality structures. Many structures, from homes to public buildings were being either destroyed or flooded during the storms. Scott and Barbara Stokes saw the awful ripple effect that this lack of sound structures was causing: people were displaced, relief efforts had nowhere to go to coordinate, and even FEMA could benefit from a sound structure.

By founding Green Structures Homes, Barbara and Scott set out to become a one-stop shop so that when a natural disaster came, their team was ready to handle the building of on-site modular structures from start to finish. Prior to founding Green Structure Homes, Barbara Stokes worked in the field of disaster relief. She gained her early experience in some of the worst conditions that desperately needed housing. By working in conditions to build on-site structures such as post-hurricane or post-flood, she gained a level of mastery that many other in the field of on-site modular structure building simply don’t have. The company has currently received close to $50 million in government contracts, much of which has been applied to help build residential and commercial structures on the sites of some of the country’s worst natural disasters that have occurred in the past several years.

Barbara Stokes is a graduate of Mercer University. During her time there she worked hard to master multiple fields that would one day contribute to her role as a leader as Green Structures Homes and in the field of on-site modular structure development. Her main two focuses were in applied Physics and the study of Biomedical Engineering. However, she also allotted a good deal of time to study several other verticals that would one day be applied to her work at GSH. Among many verticals, these included management in the manufacturing sector, thermodynamics, technical communication and more. She has experience working with such major names as Boeing Aerospace and Pisces Communication. She also has a very strong background in working in the field of government contracting. She spearheads the work to lead GSH’s support of the United States Government and of FEMA initiatives.
