Prefabricated Prison Solutions

There is a growing population in the USA that is almost impossible to keep up with, and that is prison inmates. With a tough economy, and rampant substance abuse small and petty crimes are overloading the prison system. Overcrowding is a huge problem that leads to additional challenges within the prison system. It takes on average over 24 months to design a prison addition and deal with the complexities of an addition or a new facility. Most states have adopted prefabricated prison methods. This is accomplished in many different ways.

* Concrete Cells
* Steel Cells
* Modular Construction All Steel

The fabrication time for modular prison units has had prison facilities across the USA ready to occupy in months instead of years. There are many additional design features are incorporated into a prison or jail facility, depending on the security level.

If you are facing tough overcrowding prison challenges, then contact our team of experts for a design-build solution. We will take you walk you through commissioning, and design phase through full warranty. No project is to remote or too challenging.

Cabinets-Cabinets, What Type Should I Put In My Modular Building?

At Modular Solutions,Ltd we are frequently involved in the early planning stages of an addition with our clients. One question we hear frequently is what type of cabinet should we put in our facility. The answer to that is driven by budget, functionality, use, personal taste, and schedule.

When we work with our clients during the commissioning or preconstruction phase we talk through a variety of questions to help them decide what is the best fit for their long and short term goals, and what is the best solution to meet cabinet and storage needs.
(5) Most Common Cabinet Types:
1. PREFABRICATED: This term is commonly used when there is a thin paper veneer over a compressed wood product and this is the face of your cabinets. For a really tight budget, very compressed schedule, or a low use area this type of cabinet will fit the use.
2. ALL WOOD FACED DOORS: This type of cabinet is attractive, and durable great for offices or standard daily use. They can be found "in-stock" or can be custom order depending on selection. The pricing is moderate but overall a good investment.
3. LAMINATE CABINETS: Laminate cabinets are commonly found in medical labs or doctors offices. They are washable and non-porous so they make a great "clean" option to store medical supplies. The cost is on the higher end, but when purchased from a quality manufacturer they will endure. They are usually custom order so allow a little more time in the schedule for this type of cabinet.
4. GARAGE STORAGE CABINETS: Large "BOX" stores carry these type of storage cabinets. They are surprisingly durable, and very low cost. They are not recommended for office use or high impact kitchen use, but you will see them in projects installed by owners because of the attractive cost factor and the quick delivery method.
5. KITCHEN ON STEROIDS: Everyone has walked into the box stores and seen the elaborate designs available for a beautiful kitchen area. Many of our church clients will upgrade to a more decorative cabinet system to make the kitchen feel like a home or residence. Some of our business offices will also make their breakroom kitchen areas a place worthy of a break.

Other things that are design considerations would be knobs, hardware, glazing, storage needs, plumbing, ventilation, etc. Working with our design experts we help you make an educated design choice for the best value on your project.

Equipment Lease, Section 179 Tax Benefits-Before Year End!

It is getting time for businesses that run on a calendar fiscal year to consider equipment needs, and space planning for next year. There is a little known tax incentive Section 179 that allows greater tax benefits to small and midsize companies looking to expand.

There are strategic advantages to leasing a new our used modular building versus purchasing one.
The US government has put a program together, Section 179, specifically for small to mid-sized business owners allowing them to expense or deduct their full equipment purchases from the same year tax return or “gross income”. Modular Solutions, Ltd has great partners that can help structure a tailored finance agreement which will allow you to expense the full amount, 100% of the equipment on this year’s current tax documents and you have the flexibility to pay off the remaining equipment amount either quickly, in as little as 2 years or as long as 8 years!

Enhanced Expense Limits, Section 179, 2014
This year’s deduction limit, as of January has taken a dramatic drop. The maximum equipment cost that may be written off is $25,000. The maximum amount that your business can spend to qualify is $200,000 total on equipment. For brand new equipment only, the bonus depreciation rate is 50%. However we are remaining optimistic that legistaltion may increase limits before year end.

Section 179 Background

Section 179 was originally referred to as the “SUV/Hummer deduction.” It was used to offset the cost of an SUV or business vehicle costs, which was included in the “Stimulus Act.” The Stimulus Act was created to improve the economy and although it continues to change, it is the most beneficial tax benefit for small businesses in particular.

Qualifying Property
The property must be Tangible Personal Property, and must be used for the business at a rate greater than 50%. New or used equipment is accepted. It is probable that businesses purchase Tangible Personal Property consistently: Equipment (machines, etc.), modular buildings, manufacturing tools, vehicles, software, and furniture.


Section 179 Tax Deduction is filed under IRS form 4562.Don’t forget to keep complete records of; lease agreement, purchasing details, acquired & delivery details of your business equipment!

What Is A Purchasing Cooperative?

According to widipedia, A purchasing cooperative is a type of cooperative arrangement, to combine buying power to get lower prices from selected suppliers. Purchasing Cooperatives are used most frequently by governmental entities, since they are required to follow laws requiring competitive bidding above certain thresholds. Counties, municipalities, schools, colleges and universities in the majority of states can sign an interlocal agreement or contract that allows them to legally use a contract that was procured by another governmental entity.

What types of commodity are there?
There are various types of commodities. Purchasing rules vary from state to state so many purchasing commodities choose to make a Statewide offering. For example CES of NEW MEXICO offers suppliers and services to local or state agencies who wants to be a free member of the commodity and take advantage of the time and financial savings realized throughout the state of New Mexico. The goal of CES is to provide superior services through strategic partners.

Other commodities make offerings to federal agencies. For example GSA is a national commodity, that any federal agency can purchase goods or services. Some state and local agencies recognize GSA, and others do not. The state procurement regulations dictate availability of this on a local/state basis.

Modular Solutions, Ltd is a procurement partner on the CES and GSA Schedule.
