Rolls Royce Two Story Modular Office Building

Two Story Modular Office Building Solution


 

A new two-story office building is being assembled in Mount Vernon, Ohio for Roll-Royce Energy Systems, Inc. Whitley Manufacturing partnered with Satellite to provide Roll-Royce with a nearly 36,000 square foot building to supplement the current office at their manufacturing plant. Progress on the building is moving at a rapid pace. Currently, all 53 of the modules have been installed, and interior close-up work is moving swiftly. The employees can look forward to inhabiting their new office space very soon.

Disaster Recovery Modular Buildings

Modular Buildings for Disaster Recovery

Case study:  gustavus adolphus university

modular dormitoryGustavus Adolphus University was founded in 1862 with strong Swedish and Lutheran heritage.  The school is a highly selective, private, coeducational residential liberal arts college.  The college is guided by five core values:  community, excellence, faith, justice, and service.

In light of the storm damage and disasters afflicting the Midwest, Whitley Manufacturing would like to share a past modular construction disaster recovery story with a happy ending.

On March 29, 1998, a tornado struck the campus of Gustavus Adolphus and the town of Saint Peter.  As the tornado swept across campus, it caused at least some damage to all 59 campus buildings with total damage estimates in excess of $52M.

Whitley Manufacturing was proud to assist the school in their time of need by joining the “Rebuilding a Greater Gustavus” recovery effort, constructing a modular student housing facility for the school.  WM built Prairie View Hall for the school, utilizing our accelerated modular construction system, to deliver the finished project by the start of the next year (project timeline from early April through August).

The modular dormitory houses 54 students in double occupancy rooms arranged along common corridors.

MHC Prefabrication Report

Modular Healthcare FacilityMcGraw-Hill Construction recently released a SmartMarket Report examining the many benefits of modular construction, entitled “Prefabrication and Modularization: Increasing Productivity in the Construction Industry”.

The report focuses on how new technology, such as the Building Information Modeling (BIM) software utilized by Whitley Manufacturing, allows for increased productivity through the use of prefabricated and modular components that can seamlessly be integrated into a larger structure.

A survey of over 800 architecture and engineering professionals found:

  • 66% report that project schedules are accelerated by modular components;
  • 65% report that project budgets are reduced by modular components;
  • 77% report that construction site waste is decreased by use of modular components.

The Modular Building Institute (MBI) has made several downloads available pertaining to the report.  Download the report here.  Download the podcast here.
