Piece by piece: New Bug-O-Nay-Ge-Shig school comes together in...

Piece by piece: New Bug-O-Nay-Ge-Shig school comes together in...

Mobilize our factory in "anytown" USA

Modular Solutions, Ltd recently took our factory "on-the-road".  We brought our technology and experience using prefabricated construction, and mobilized near the site.  By hiring local crews, and team members we generated jobs within the local economy, and did not have the huge shipping costs frequently associated with prefabricated construction.

This approach was well received by the local tribe and agency and a 45,000 sq. ft. school will be completed by the end of the year.

When completed this will be the end result

What? An All Steel Modular Building?

We recently visited a factory on the east coast and they were completely perplexed at the thought of constructing a modular building out of steel.   With architects and developers expecting a 50+ year life cycle from their investment it is time for everyone to see there is a better way to build.

Modular Solutions, Ltd has a product line that has steel floor joists, steel roof rafters, can be set on a slab or the concrete can be poured in the plant and this facility will endure the test of time.

In locations where seismic and wind conditions are extreme this is the perfect solution.  We are seeing higher standards in the new IBC codes and this is an example of a great way to meet or exceed the energy code and structural requirements

Modular Building Windows, What Are My Choices

What Type Of Windows Can We Use In our Modular Building?

Commercial modular buildings are constructed to the IBC code, the same code as any traditional site contractor will use.   The goal is to design a building that allows natural light, but that also has energy efficiency built into the modular building design.

What to look for: The National Fenestration Rating Council offers five areas to consider when selecting windows for your new modular building.  
  1. U-Factor determines how well a window prevents heat from escaping. U-Factor ratings generally fall between 0.20 and 1.20 the lower number is best at keeping heat in. This is a great consideration for a modular church building.
  1. Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) reflects how well a product will blocks heat from the sun. SHGC is expressed as a number between 0 and 1, a lower SHGC indicating a product that is better at blocking unwanted heat gain. This is important when constructing a modular hospital or clinical facility.
  2. Visible Transmittance (VT) indicates how much light comes through the window. VT is expressed as a number between 0 and 1 the higher the VT number the higher the potential for daylighting. This is important in modular  educational spaces.
  3. Air Leakage (AL) measures how much outside air comes into your new modular building. AL rates typically fall in a range between 0.1 and 0.3 the lower AL  is better at keeping air out.  This should be considered in modular hospitality projects.
  4. Condensation Resistance (CR) measures how well a window resists the formation of condensation. CR will show a number between 1 and 100 with a higher CR indicating a product better able to resist condensation. Federal modular building projects often look at this consideration
  5. Low E Windows will cost about 10% or 15% more than standard windows, but will supposedly reduce energy loss by as much as 50%.

  6.  The federal government has a program designed to show consumers energy efficiency.   Windows are one of the products that get registered.   Look for your energy star sticker to tell you more about the window & how good the energy savings will be.

  7. There are also lots of options for coatings, screens, shutters, frame materials, and opening operation.   

  8. For more information contact our design team & we can help you make informed decisions on the best value for your new modular building.
