A marcellus shale company was in need of an office building to accommodate its growing rapidly growing business. Newly acquired land was grubbed & cleared, utilities & roads were brought in to service the companies’ operations and to provide jobs to the community.
The existing modular building was configured to accommodate the company’s work flow and assist with a positive work environment by creating a clean, well-appointed office building on their new land. A large wrap around deck, complete with an ADA handicap ramp was installed to provide employees a place to relax when not working
In lieu of purchasing a new modular building, the owner selected an existing modular building that was originally used as office space on a military installation in the mid-Atlantic region. The existing building was the perfect size for the owner and they were very interested in the cost savings that they received as a result. Local contractors were used to complete the refurbishment activities, which support the community.
The building materials selected focus on energy savings and environmental concerns that favor GREEN building. A whole-building approach to sustainability was considered during the renovations/refurbishment of the building which included sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.
