Residents and businesses across New York and New Jersey are still reeling from the effects of Hurricane Sandy. Moonachie Township in Bergen County, New Jersey is no different. Four feet of water flooded much of the town, including Robert L. Craig Elementary. The school was badly damaged and not fit for teaching.
Administrators called ModSpace and less than a month later, the school reopened in temporary modular classrooms. It’s a good story for ModSpace, and a great one for the children of Moonachie.
Watch the video below to hear the school’s principal tell the story in her own words.
As residents of New Jersey and New York continue to pick up the pieces after Superstorm Sandy, we’re doing our part to accelerate recovery efforts through faster temporary and permanent modular buildings.
While some finish work is still underway, this rough, first-cut time-lapse video shows how the speed of temporary modular got the students of Robert L. Craig Elementary School in the Moonachie School District of Bergen County, NJ back to school on January 2nd. The 32,000 square foot temporary modular school that was ready for use in just 25 days.
Look for more updates and a final time-lapse video soon on the Moonachie school project and the temporary city hall which ModSpace is now building right down the street.
Recovery efforts following the devastation caused by superstorm Sandy earlier this month are in full force. One New Jersey school district is taking a big step to ensure its students are back in the classroom as quickly as possible.

In Franklin Township, New Jersey, not far from the areas hit hardest by Hurricane Sandy, a 1 million square foot warehouse is buzzing with activity around the clock. On any other day, it would be just a warehouse in a suburban industrial park. Now it’s a primary hub from which an army of volunteers for the American Red Cross are running the massive relief effort to aid the families and businesses that lost everything in the storm.
That warehouse is where 10 ModSpace employees from our corporate office outside of Philadelphia spent last Wednesday, November 14 as Red Cross volunteers. As donations pour in from around the globe, volunteers are needed to get supplies to the Red Cross shelters Continue reading →
As recovery efforts from Sandy unfolded last week, we were struck by the resiliency of those who were affected by the storm and of the willingness of others to come to their neighbors’ aid. Helping hands from across the nation were lent to help victims rebuild their homes, their communities, their lives. It’s a proud reminder of what makes America great.
The same can said of the business community, where companies are coming together to drive Continue reading →
The devastating effects of superstorm Sandy are still being felt throughout the Northeast, particularly in the hardest hit areas of New Jersey and New York. More than 1 million residents are still without electricity, and relief efforts are expected to continue for weeks.
ModSpace helps businesses get back on track faster using temporary and permanent modular construction. Case in point, after a tornado ripped through Americus, Georgia on the night of March 1, 2007, residents awoke to a Continue reading →
It’s now clear that the impact of Sandy will be felt for years and possibly decades to come. As communities in the storm-affected areas embark on the long road to recovery, we’re reminded of a similar situation just last year in western Massachusetts.
