He founded EcoCraft Homes with his son in 2012 to usher in a new era of green, modular building that pushes the envelope of sustainability, energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy..

In 1992 Fabri founded New Era Building Systems (NEBS), a modular home producer in Pennsylvania. As president and CEO, Fabri sold more than 12,000 homes to builders and developers throughout the Northeast, Midwest and Mid-Atlantic United States. Through NEBS and his other companies, Fabri built numerous green solar homes including the Solar Patriot, which was a featured display on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. in 2001. Fabri’s company also built the first NextGen Home in collaboration with Martin Architectural Group’s Green Studio. Following a 2003 challenge to 16 architects by Dwell Magazine, Fabri worked with Resolution 4 Architects to build the ground-breaking modern pre-fab Dwell House.

From 1999 until 2004, he served as President of the Automated Builders Consortium, a non-profit group dedicated to assisting in the redevelopment of blighted areas within major cities throughout the United States. Fabri played the lead role in the Manufactured Housing Institute’s (MHI) Urban Design Demonstration Project, addressing housing affordability in urban and suburban areas by working with local government officials and developers to implement modular housing.

Elliot has been the recipient of several major industry accolades including MHI Industry’s Person of the Year as well as the James R. Price Award for Achievement in Housing.
