In 2015, after ESPN took over broadcast rights for the United States Open tennis tournament, Triumph Modular was awarded a 3 year contract to build their new broadcast facilities. The structure would need to be relocatable, durable and have the capacity for all production and personnel assets. With the challenge came a razor sharp deadline and a confined construction site.
Two buildings were constructed off-site by Whitley Manufacturing and was 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. Both buildings were designed for functionality, comfort and eye appeal. The large open rooms were suitable for staff and equipment and flexible in design for program changes.
The relocatable design was the perfect solution for a building that must be moved and set up year after year. Whitley Manufacturing built it to last. Epoxy bonding agents on the walls and the architectural metal siding made it resistant to wear and tear and road transport chalanges. LED lighting throughout the building offered comfort and energy economy. Three-phase air conditioning units were also chosen in order to increase efficiency for long term savings.
Challanging construction space was not an issue for Whitley Manufacturing’s modular technology. Triumph Modular was able to take advantage of their production capabilities, where the production process was streamlined and weather delays were not a factor. As each of these elements came together, the benefits of functionality, flexibility, durability and an on time schedule, made this project a success.
