Putting It Together
For some in the industry,
the words "modular
conjure up images of
construction trailers or
facilities that are
functional, if not exactly
Although this might have been
the case in previous years,
many companies today are
showing that modular-based
structures do not have to be
drab steel boxes that are quickly disassembled after use.
In this issue, we highlight
the efforts of three of those
companies in a special section
dedicated to modular construction. One of them, Vanguard
Modular, on page 28, focuses its
efforts on permanent struc-
tures for a variety of uses in the commercial
and institutional sector.
Mobile Modular (page 34) offers innovative
structures tailored to its customers' needs. "Our
modular building designs and quality have
given us the ability to expand into new areas,"
Vice President Phil Hawkins says.
Marengo Structures (page 32) takes a unique
approach to modular construction by repurposing former shipping containers into apartments and houses.
As Lad Dawson of Guerdon Modular Buildings notes in his column on page 26, modular
construction offers a number of advantages
including short construction times and low
labor costs. Construction companies should
consider these advantages and dismiss their
preconceived notions the next time they think
about modular methods.
