How Metal Buildings Deliver Long Term Value To Schools

November 3rd, 2014

Did you know that Modern is also a Star Building Systems metal building representative? A combination of modular and other off-site construction methods, like metal building, can result in a great facility with maximum flexibility and a quick fabrication & installation. As your design-build company, we can turn your dream into reality using off-site construction applications that make the most sense for your use.

From Star Building Systems’ white paper – How Metal Buildings Can Deliver Long-Term Value To Schools

“An inherent requirement of any modern school building is that it be able to resist an enormous amount of daily wear and tear while retaining its functional integrity and aesthetic appeal for many years.”

For more information about how metal buildings deliver long term value to meet the challenges of increasing enrollment & narrowing education construction budgets, check out the source of this great infographic by downloading Star’s white paper here.


A Modern project that utilizes multiple types of off-site construction in synergy, the Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indian’s new education center features a metal framed gymnasium seamlessly linked to a modular academic space. A great selection of practical sustainable features can be found in this project. And you can watch it go up in a minute & a half.
