At the Modular Building Institute’s annual convention in Las Vegas, the Lexington Elementary School project won First Place in its category of “Permanent Modular Construction, Education – over 20,000 square feet”! Projects were submitted from all over the country and were judged on a range of criteria including innovation, energy efficiency, and number of days to complete.
The Modular Building Institute, headquartered in Virginia, is an international non-profit trade association that advocates for, and serves, those in the modular construction industry. People from more than twenty countries attended the convention as the ‘off-site construction’ method is gaining momentum worldwide because as data shows, “On average, modular construction realizes a cost savings of 26% and a construction schedule savings of 42%”.
Congratulations to our team:
