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 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.
