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.
Widespread growth in the oil and gas industry, particularly in the shale regions of the U.S. and the oil sands in Western Canada, has placed increased emphasis on keeping workers safe and costs at a minimum. Blast resistant modules, also known as BRMs, can do both.
BRMs are relocatable steel buildings designed to keep workers safe from a blast. Their ability to [Read more…] about Blast Resistant Modules Help Energy Firms Keep Workers Safe and Projects on Track
In an attempt to further capitalize on North Dakota’s skyrocketing oil industry, Enbridge Energy recently notified its stockholders that it will move forward with its $2.5 billion plan to expand its pipeline from the northwestern part of the state to its terminal in Superior, Wisconsin.
Wisconsin Public Radio reports North Dakota’s Bakken oil fields have experienced remarkable growth in just a few short years. Whereas the Bakken oil sands produced just 20,000 barrels of light crude per day five years ago, that number has already increased to 700,000 and could ultimately [Read more…] about Enbridge Energy to Expand Pipeline Between North Dakota and Wisconsin
U.S. energy production has taken a significant step forward in recent years, particularly through new technologies that have allowed the extraction of gas from shale formations in places such as North Dakota and Pennsylvania.
A recent report from the Paris-based International Energy Agency (IEA), for instance, indicated that the surge in the U.S. will help the country surpass Russia as the largest producer of natural gas by 2015. A release from the agency also noted that [Read more…] about U.S. to Overtake Russia, Saudi Arabia in Oil and Gas Production
An article just published by the Associated Press cites two recent studies that found the Marcellus Shale natural gas field is much larger and more cost effective to drill than originally projected in government reports.
According to last week’s report from Standard & Poor’s, Marcellus Shale could contain “almost half of the current proven natural gas reserves in the U.S.”
In a separate report from ITG Investment Research, an analysis of the region’s well production data shows that production is [Read more…] about Report: Marcellus Shale Larger and More Cost Effective Than Originally Projected
As energy exploration and extraction efforts take center stage in some of America’s most remote and undeveloped areas, rural economies are being forced to grow up fast. Civic and business leaders may find help from modular construction.
It makes sense. From the oil sands in Western Canada to the Marcellus Shale of western Pennsylvania and Ohio, out-of-state workers are flooding small towns and creating immediate needs for facilities. For energy companies and the communities that support them, modular construction is the building solution that can ease these growing pains now and down the road.
Immediate Buildings for Immediate Needs
Current resources are stretched to capacity. Adding buildings quickly is essential to keeping projects on track and towns from being overwhelmed.
Temporary modular buildings can be delivered almost anywhere and configured for virtually any [Read more…] about Modular Construction Eases Rural Growing Pains
