Construction in New York City comes with some unique challenges. One of those challenges is fitting large construction offices into extremely tight spaces. When NYU commissioned an $800 million project that would include a new high-tech science center, the general contractor had to fit a lot of equipment onto a tight job site.

Through rain, sleet, hail and 102-inches of snow, the ModSpace branch office in Boston continues to deliver world-class service to our customers in New England.
The Boston office, and the rest of our locations throughout the Northeast and in Eastern Canada, have been open every day through the harsh winter to help businesses in need of mobile offices and portable storage units. It’s just one more example of the our commitment to helping businesses thrive, even in the most extreme conditions.
We’re honored to be a part of the 2014 Boston Marathon this Monday, April 21st. Our mobile offices are already in place as command posts and crew offices at the start line in the Hopkinton Common and the finish line in Copley Square.
Congratulations to all of the participants, event organizers and the City of Boston on the 118th running of this great race. You truly are Boston strong.

After the Games the host city is often left with an overbuilt, even excessive infrastructure. [Read more…] about Olympic Host Cities Look to Modular for Scalable Building
