Marcellus Shale Refurbished Modular Office

Williamsport, PA

The Challenge

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

The Solution

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.
