Box On Wheels, Isn't That What A Modular Building Is?

One comment that the modular industry hears frequently is "I don't want a trailer, it is just a box on wheels". Our goal is help you understand that while some companies in the modular industry still design and sell a "box-on-wheels" there is so much more available. Companies like Modular Solutions, LTD take pride in having an architectural staff, and building permanent structures that have 50+ year life cycles, and are sustainable and good for the environment.

I have been in the modular industry since the 80's and it has been great to see the pioneers in the industry that have built hotels, hospitals, military dormitories, and all types of permanent structures with great structural and aesthetic upgrades. Modular Solutions, Ltd has been a member of the modular building institute that showcases projects in our industry that push the envelope of creativity, and really take modular projects to a new level. There is no reason to settle, when you can have the very best.

Emergency Space Solutions, After A Flood

The Glendale Union High School District experienced torrential rain storms, causing flood conditions. When they needed emergency space they came to Modular Solutions, Ltd in Phoenix. Our team has (6) classrooms in inventory that were ready to ship and set in place. By working closely with their site contractor McCarthy Construction and with the District Modular Solutions, Ltd was able to get emergency classrooms open for children in a matter of days.

The local and state building officials and Fire Marshall had to expedite the approval and placement policy to get the buildings approved for occupancy. This is a great example of what can be accomplished when you have a great team in place and everyone has a "can-do" attitude.

Indoor Air Quality, What Is That?

One phrase that has been seen more in the modular building industry lately is "indoor Air Quality". What does that really mean?
Indoor air quality (IAQ) simply refers to the air quality within modular and traditional constructed buildings and structures. IAQ usually relates to the health and comfort of building occupants. IAQ can be affected by gases (including carbon monoxide, radon, volatile organic compounds), particulates, microbial contaminants (mold, bacteria), or any mass or energy stressor that can induce adverse health conditions. In most cases buildings being utilized for classroom or office use can be brought up to current standards by updating fresh air standards. Some occupants can be sensitive to the gases in a building (traditional or modular), and need special corrections.

When a project is LEED the category this usually falls under is Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ). This is only one of the categories, that LEED uses as a standard to provide comfort, well-being, and productivity of the building occupants. The LEED IEQ category helps address design and construction guidelines pertaining to: indoor air quality (IAQ), thermal quality, and lighting quality.

Proper building ventilation, fresh air, windows, natural & electric lighting, VOC or gas emissions, all fall under the environmental conditions inside a modular or traditional structure.

We Need Worship Space...HELP!

Worship space is very common in the modular industry. Churches and religious organizations that are growing, but not enough to build their permanent structure are looking for ways to save money and time. By using a modular building as a semi-permanent space solution the church can continue to grow and be a part of a community without having to be a "church-in-a-box" where they lease space and pack and unpack their belongings every week.

What options are available for small religious communities?

1. Lease a previously leased modular building. They payments are affordable, and the building can be installed fairly quick. When you are done you just turn it back in.
2. Purchase a previously leased modular building. If you save up for a short period of time you will find the used modular buildings are less expensive than new
3. Lease/Purchase a previously leased modular building. This is a great way if you are planning on keeping the building for other uses when the permanent building goes in.

Semi-permanent modular buildings are a bridge between meeting on your home campus, and having your dream building.
The great thing about choosing Modular Solutions, Ltd for this type of building is we can also build the permanent building when you are ready (from inception - final warranty)

Do Modular Buildings Have Safe VOC Levels?

A fairly new acronym in the construction and green industry is Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) They are organic chemicals that have a high vapor pressure at ordinary room temperature. Their high vapor pressure results from a low boiling point, which causes large numbers of molecules to evaporate or sublimate from the liquid or solid form of the compound and enter the surrounding air.

Where is VOC in a building?
VOC's usually come from things like paint, carpet glue, wall glue, cleaning solvents and other components within a building. VOCs can sometimes cause symptoms to those that are sensitive, including headaches and dizziness. The federal government has strictly regulated the levels that are considered allowable by each industry. For example, The federal government caps the VOC content in paint at 250 grams per liter (g/l) for flat finishes and 380 g/l for other finishes (low-luster, semigloss, etc.). This is the standard that many companies utilize. HOWEVER there are companies that have invested into developing NO VOC paints. You can find those in chain stores and on line.

How do we get low or no VOC?
VOC content is something that does not effect most of the population today because suppliers are making their formulas different to comply with federal guidelines, but you can specifically ask for a low or NO VOC content building and specify how and where you want that to occur. By doing your homework you can call out the brands and type of products you want in your modular building.
Look for the logos

What if we don't know what to choose?
By hiring a professional modular building company such as Modular Solutions, Ltd you can work with the design & preconstruction team to ensure you are getting an environmentally friendly and safe building.
