As even more severe weather strikes the Midwest, the thoughts of everyone at Whitley Manufacturing are with our fellow-Hoosiers and Midwesterners who have been so dramatically effected by last week’s severe and unseasonable storms.

A pair of Southern Indiana communities suffered heavy damage in addition to the losses already suffered by victims throughout the region.  The National Weather Service states that the tornado that struck New Pekin measured a EF-3 on the Fujita scale, while the tornado which struck Henryville, IN measured EF-4 with winds of 175 MPH.

As our neighbors shift their focus from rescue to recovery, Whitley Manufacturing is proud to stand ready to support the disaster recovery with our line of relocatable modular buildings produced with our sustainable construction system.

Modular construction from Whitley Manufacturing can deliver flexible and high-quality commercial space on an accelerated timeline, allowing for a quick recovery and a well-supported clean-up effort.

We currently have a number of our flexible clearspan modular building components available for rapid delivery.  These flexible units feature clearspan construction, allowing for endless reconfiguration of the building and interior layout.  See our full inventory of modular buildings available for rapid delivery.

Whitley Manufacturing is a custom manufacturer of commercial modular buildings, and as such, can work with you, your architect, your town planner, etc. to design and build facilities to suit your individual needs.

AIA to create “Match.com” for Projects

Modular Buildings Steel Frame ConstructionThe American Institute of Architects (AIA) is looking to do for builders, architects, and developers what Match.com has done for the dating scene.  This service has a similar goal to the dating service:  to connect well-matched parties who otherwise might never meet.

The new site aims to connect developers of stalled construction projects and “real estate investors searching for opportunities” through a searchable online database.  AIA officials believe the service could provide a boost for the construction industry.

Paul Mendelsohn, vice president of government and community relations for the AIA says, “We’ve learned from our membership that access to credit is one of the major hurdles, so through this mechanism we hope to help find some of that funding.”  The database will categorize projects by type, location, energy efficiency, and other features.

Preliminary estimates are targeting a mid-September launch for the site with an expansion of features in the following months.  Mendelsohn states “Getting the building sector back on the streets will not only help architects and others in the industry, it will help jump-start the entire economy.”

For modular builders and distributors with potential clients whose projects have stalled due to lack of funding, this may be a beneficial resource to help clients re-start dormant projects.  Whitley Manufacturing’s sustainable modular construction system also offers an opportunity to developers with stalled projects.

If a project cannot be fully funded, a custom modular building solution can be designed for future scalability as capital becomes available.  Custom modular buildings feature accurate costing due to the modern production method and factory setting, allowing developers to control costs and minimize contingencies.  Hybrid approaches using conventional construction and prefabricated components can accelerate timelines and control costs as well.
