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. Officials say the modular plan is the most cost- and time-efficient way to prepare the boardwalk and shoreline communities. New York’s $100 million investment in modular will pay for itself many Continue reading →
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 title says it all. Watch this short video and see 5 weeks flash by as ModSpace constructs a fully functional 7-unit mobile office complex. When it comes to adding buildings in days (not months), there really is no substitute.
Swedish internet service provider Bahnhof recently completed construction of a new data center in a retired nuclear bunker in Stockholm using modular building techniques. The resulting underground building looks more like a space station.
Located 100 feet beneath the surface, the space was originally built to withstand a nuclear blast. Bahnhof leased the bunker more than two years ago from the city for an undisclosed period.
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.
Robert L. Craig Elementary School in Moonachie was hit hard by the tidal surge during Sandy, as a riverbank overflowed and water levels spiked to Continue reading →
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 →
