Mobile Offices Help Organizers at the 2014 Boston Marathon

We’re honored to be a part of the 2014 Boston Marathon this Monday, April 21st. Our mobile offices are already in place as command posts and crew offices at the start line in the Hopkinton Common and the finish line in Copley Square.

Congratulations to all of the participants, event organizers and the City of Boston on the 118th running of this great race. You truly are Boston strong.

How to Build Better Mobile Offices Part 1: The Foundation

Not all mobile offices are created equal. Precision in-factory construction can produce high-quality mobile offices with all the amenities and comforts of a conventional full-service office building.

Click on the video below to watch ModSpace VP of Construction Services Sam Tikriti walk you through the first of our three-part series on how to build a better mobile office.


Be sure to check back later this week as we post the next video in this series.

ModSpace Returns to the Final Four

A new slate of teams will battle in the Final Four to win this year’s national collegiate basketball title, but one familiar team is back in force. It’s ModSpace, and this year we’re surrounding Reunion Park in Dallas with mobile offices and ModSafe portable storage units to assist Turner Sports with its production of the NCAA Finals and the March Madness Music Festival.

When the teams square off at the Big Dance this weekend, the ModSpace team will be behind the scenes helping production crews pull off one of the greatest spectacles in sports.

UConn, Kentucky, Florida or Wisconsin. Which is your pick to win it all this year?

Battleships and Construction Offices Together in Pearl Harbor

Pearl Harbor 11 Battleships and Construction Offices Together in Pearl HarborNo organization in the world is more mobile than the United States Navy. So, naturally we were intrigued by this scene that shows their ships behind a trio of ModSpace mobile offices.The three large buildings are the land-based field headquarters for the construction of the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation’s (HART) new maintenance and storage facility in Pearl Harbor.

Building in the Hawaiian Islands is never easy. ModSpace shipped 20 modular units on a barge to the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Upon arrival in Pearl Harbor, the units were connected and built out to make two eight-unit and one four-unit complexes. The three construction offices were ready in 20 days and will remain in place for the duration of the two-year infrastructure project.

For our part it’s just cool seeing these mobile offices set against a backdrop of a Navy destroyers and one huge aircraft carrier.

Olympic Host Cities Look to Modular for Scalable Building

Modular Olympics Boston2024 Olympic Host Cities Look to Modular for Scalable BuildingAs Beantown makes its bid to host the 2024 Olympics, Boston has proposed using (and reusing) modular construction to create a scalable Olympic stadium and Olympic Village.

The Olympic Games can be a double-edged sword for a host city. An influx of tourism and a public relations blitz are assured for the months up to and during the Games. On the flipside, the host city also risks losing the sizeable investment required to submit a bid to the International Olympic Committee (IOC).

After the Games the host city is often left with an overbuilt, even excessive infrastructure. Read more

Las Vegas Mobile Offices Show Off Artistic Edge

photo 6 300x225 Las Vegas Mobile Offices Show Off Artistic EdgeWe’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.

Modular Classrooms Welcome Students Back to School

kaplanprofile1 300x195 Modular Classrooms Welcome Students Back to SchoolA new school year’s underway, and here’s what we know about the state of education:

  • The generation now heading back to class is the largest since the Baby Boomers.
  • School populations are projected to grow steadily through 2019.
  • At $10 billion, U.S. spending on school construction is half of what is was prior to the recession.
  • The American Society of Civil Engineers report on infrastructure gave our schools a D+.

Clearly, there’s a gap between the need for learning space and the resources invested in building it. Is modular an effective solution? We think so, and here’s why: Read more
