Temporary Workforce Housing

Temporary Workforce Housing

Modular buildings from Modular Genius are an ideal solution for temporary and permanent workforce accommodations.  Use them as military barracks, man camps, retreat centers, campground housing, and anywhere else you need flexible, functional living spaces that provide the comforts of home.

Modular Genius is a turnkey modular building contractor. We specialize in high-quality design-to-occupancy modular buildings and have the knowledge and skills to meet your small- and large-scale space requirements, deadlines and budget challenges.

We manufacture modular buildings in a factory using the same materials as site-built buildings and abiding by the same building codes. They can be deployed 40% to 50% faster than conventionally built structures and are typically 20% to 40% less expensive.

Our wide range of services include architectural renderings, building foundations and site preparation, doors, windows and hardware, masonry, interior and exterior finishing, paving and landscaping, ramps and steps, and other elements such as temperature and sound control and handicapped accessibility.

Modular Living Quarters

Modular living quarters can be mobile or permanent. They can be used many different purposes; student housing, retreat centers, barracks for military, and more. They are a smart, fast way to expand.

In private industry, modular workforce facilities are commonly used for firefighting crews and for oilfield and mining “man camps.” They typically incorporate kitchens, dining facilities, showers, and sleeping quarters, and can be installed in just weeks at a prepared site to house anywhere from 20 to 1,000 workers.

In military settings, modular barracks and sleeping quarters can overcome long, drawn-out, site-built construction projects when living space is needed to accommodate base realignments or rapid troop expansions. 

There are unlimited options for interior design, including doors, windows, floor coverings, heating or air-conditioning, and wall finishes. Relocatable modular buildings can also be enhanced with energy-efficient utilities, eco-friendly insulation, and no-VOC or low-VOC interior wall and floor treatments to create a “green” environment.

Modular workforce housing can also be reliably designed to resist wind, snow, and internal explosion loads and meet increasingly strict code requirements for fire resistance, secondary containment, and structural strength.

With all-weather construction and many floor plans to choose from, modular buildings are the perfect way to give your staff a comfortable and protected area to sleep, eat, and work.

If you are worried about how long your modular building might last, the industry trade group Modular Building Institute estimates that temporary, or relocatable, modular buildings (not affixed to real estate) have a design life of about 40 years, while permanent modular buildings have a lifespan of at least 60 years.

Case studies:  Modular Genius built temporary housing for the U.S. Coast Guard Headquarters in Washington, DC, two-story sleeping quarters for Donley Fire House, and duplex dormitories for a Pennsylvania college, illustrating the usefulness of modular dormitories and barracks as a quick way to overcome overcrowding.
