We’ve seen our modular buildings used in some pretty innovative ways. But one of our latest mobile offices to hit the street in Downtown Las Vegas is showing far more character, and color, than usual.
The owner of Zappos.com is investing $350 million in the revitalization of the area through a project called the Downtown Project.
The ModSpace mobile office is a dramatic visual and place where developers can show their vision to prospective clients, businesses and investors. When completed the Downtown Project should give a huge boost to the local economy, including one of our favorite parts, Container Park, where colorful, repurposed steel storage containers are the backdrop for a cool new urban scene.
The 2013 U.S Open wrapped up last weekend at Merion Golf Club in Ardmore, PA. To the millions of fans that watched the event on TV, the severe thunderstorms, dramatic landscape and one-of-a-kind wicker baskets atop the flagsticks will be among the standout memories of this year’s event. What TV didn’t show was the city of 120 mobile offices ModSpace built exclusively for the tournament.
The preparation, delivery and setup of modular facilities required a carefully coordinated team effort. Territory Sales Manager Denis Mangifesta led the effort, working closely with USGA and Merion Golf Club officials and the ModSpace Operations Team.
We pulled Denis, a golfer himself; down from Cloud 9 just long enough to ask him a few questions after the last ball was sunk.
The greatest event in golf tees off tomorrow at the historic Merion Golf Club as Tiger Woods, Bubba Watson, Phil Mickelson and the rest of the fan favorites vie for the title at the U.S. Open. While all eyes are on the course, more than 120 ModSpace modular buildings will be behind the scenes helping the USGA make it all happen.
Modular buildings at events of this magnitude are standard issue these days. Just this year ModSpace was at the Final Four and the Super Bowl. But the U.S. Open is different. From the first tee to the clubhouse and beyond, our mobile offices are being used for everything imaginable, including player registration, media, merchandising and hospitality by companies like NBC Sports, Sports Illustrated, Lexus and the USGA.
Challenge: Watch the U.S. Open this weekend and count how many ModSpace mobile offices you see.
The summer season is just weeks away. Yet six months after Hurricane Sandy, some beach communities are still rebuilding. For shoreline businesses, the season drives the bulk of their annual revenue. Some that aren’t ready are turning to modular construction to open on time.
Modular Facilities Heading to the Shore
For New Yorkers, the push includes modular facilities for restrooms, lifeguard stations and maintenance offices.

Since opening late last year, the ModSpace refurb center in Elizabethtown, PA has been taking in our oldest mobile office trailers and turning out high-quality workspace. The E-town facility was recently featured in an article on LancasterOnline.com.
We completely refurbish them. When they go out the door, they look like a new, Plant Manager Randy Weaver told reporter Chad Umble.
The Final Four are heading to Georgia with thousands of screaming fans in tow. ModSpace is stepping up for The Big Dance with a fleet of mobile offices to support the surge of media and jam-packed calendar of special events around college basketball’s grand finale.

You never know where ModSpace mobile offices are going to show up next. A couple weeks ago they were seen outside of the Superdome at Super Bowl XLVII. Most recently, they appeared during the backstage interviews of the series finale of NBC’s hit sitcom “The Office”.
It sounds funny to say that mobile offices were seen on The Office, but that’s exactly the case. Where will they show up next?
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.
The ModSpace HQ is headed to Hollywood. Well, Minnesota actually. Nonetheless, the ultimate onsite office is making its television debut this weekend on Hometime, one of the longest running home improvement programs on TV. This season the Hometime team is building a new home in the Minneapolis area. They asked the HQ mobile office to help out for the duration as their onsite project headquarters and a warm refuge from frosty temps.
The Hometime premiere airs this Saturday, February 16th on PBS. Check your local listings for times.
