Fun Friday : Lego high school

June 12th, 2015

We are loving this Lego model created by a fifth grader at Abiqua Academy in Salem, OR. There are great details captured in the detailed minature. (The t-rex fossil at the front entrance is one of our favorites.) The close educational community of Abiqua Academy has a passion and enthusiasm for this project that absolutely radiates through.

But there’s another reason this model is near and dear to our heart. Sometimes we describe building modular as “building with grown up Legos”. And what could be more appropriate? Modular doesn’t mean being forced into use of only boxes. Modular building means only that off-site fabrication is involved in the planning & realization of a vision.

Modular construction is a type of construction – not a limitation and not an architectural style. Off-site fabrication can be coupled with any other building style – like this recent project for the Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians that combines modular with a metal framed gymnasium (another form of off-site construction!) and a timbered roof overbuild completed at site. Or how about these gorgeous, exposed industrial supports and huge windows at Fife Library?

Like Legos, the only limit to modular construction is your imagination!

Tribe dedicates Education Center

July 28th, 2014

The Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians blessed the new Education Center this weekend at an family-oriented barbeque hosted by Modern.

Kids played in the gymnasium and members mingled, celebrating in their new space & the opportunities it brings for the tribe’s future. The synergy of a steel fabricated building coupled with a modular structure creates a custom space solution that gives the Shingle Springs Band a quality facility with multi-use flexibility.

Modern considers it a privilege to have been a part of this project. Our sincere ‘thank you’ to the tribe, subcontractors and vendors who played a part in its success.


In case you missed it – watch the building site time lapse to see 4 months of sitework speed by in a minute & a half.

 

 

Congrats to one of our own!
