Topping out celebration today. We Built this 48 unit apartment building from 120 modules that we make in our own Manufacturing Facility, then ship to our Project sites. This is the third project I have had the privilege to work on. The next project broke ground this year, and I will start setting modules in February 2019. That project will have over 700 modular structures. Today was a big Milestone, but only a small step towards the big things ahead. I have worked everyday over the past 6 weeks, Monday-Sunday, 10-16 hour days, and watched this project transform. I am totally beat, but the satisfaction of our accomplishments keep driving me forward. #butfirstvacation#modularbuilding#RADurban#ilovemyjob#americanflag#pinetree#toppingout#coffee#safetyfirst#ineedavacation#bigthingsahead
Amazon, Google, IKEA and now GC firms enter into the Modular space. WHY..? “Modular is Faster, Stronger, Better... components are built off-site which provides better controlled conditions & allows for improved quality & precision in the fabrication.
GREENER...factory controlled process generates less waste, creates fewer site disturbances and allows for tighter construction.
FASTER... Construction of modular buildings occurs simultaneously with site work, allowing projects to be completed in half the time of traditional construction.
Construction of modular buildings occurs simultaneously with site & foundation work, so projects can be completed 30% to 50% sooner than traditional construction.
Elimination of Weather Delays: up to 90% of the construction is completed inside a factory, which mitigates the risk.
SMARTER... Modular buildings built with the same materials & to the same building codes & architectural specifications as traditional built.
Beyond quality management & improved completion time, Removing approximately 80% of the building construction & reduces site disruption.
For architects, developers, & owners alike modular construction companies today can work with all levels of design.
Compact and flexible modular housing with Kokoon.
Kokoon modular system was designed by Aalto University's students for temporary housing, but the concept is adaptable for larger housing units and on an industrial scale.
The modules have proven to be relatively easy to disassemble and transport, as Kokoon has been on display in different events and exhibitions.

Figuring out what to do with the waterfront. Maybe I'll move the Palace Cinema next to the Parisian Restaurant with a 16 stud walkway in between. So the waterfront becomes a great place for a night out. Any ideas?
