ESPN’s new Broadcast Complex and Administrative building for the US Open Tennis Tournament were constructed with modular technology. It was the perfect solution for their flexible needs.
Two buildings were constructed off-site by Whitley Manufacturing and were set and finished by Triumph Modular at the ESPN Broadcast Village. They consisted of a 2 story broadcast media complex and a single story administrative building. Go to the Case Study for more information, photos and floor plans.

Dennis Haley School Case Study
New Case Study added for a custom designed modular classroom building for The City of Boston Public Schools in Roslindale, MA .
Triumph Modular partnered with Whitley Manufacturing for design-build construction of seven modular classrooms at the Dennis Haley School, in Massachusetts.
Modular buildings from Whitley Manufacturing offer a flexible solution to these challenges. The modules fit seamlessly with the existing school campus.
The UPGRADE INDUSTRIAL WAREHOUSE EXPANSION
An Odessa, Texas shipping company is growing and their warehouse facility needs to adjust to changing demand. To employ its current warehouse functions, the addition will need to tie-in with the existing building. The challenge is to avoid interruption with regular business activities and to have it operational in weeks. It wasn’t certain if a clear span modular building would address these considerations.
THE UPGRADE™ CLEAR SPAN MODULAR BUILDING SYSTEM
Partnering with USA Modular, Whitley proposed the use of a new series of a clear span modular building called the UpGrade. The UpGrade Modular Building System is a high-quality, modular, steel-framed structure designed for permanent placement, with the unique ability to be physically relocated multiple times if desired.
The end walls of the modules have the ability to fold under, allowing up to 3 modules to be shipped on a single flatbed trailer. Items such as siding, roofing, insulation and electrical systems were pre-installed in the Whitley factory to minimize on-site work. Once the modules arrived on site, a crane was used to lift the modules into place, allowing the end walls to unfold. After the modules were bolted down to the slab and mate-line close-up materials were put in place, the building was ready for equipment installation and finished. Only a matter of a few hours passed from a bare concrete slab, to a finished, weather tight building.
