Savage Mountain Youth Center Modular Complex

Lonaconing, MD

The Challenge

A State Department of Juvenile Services was in need of a modular building to move students out of the existing facilities in order to ease overcrowding. The Youth Center is a six- to nine-month treatment program for male youth primarily between the ages of 14 to 18 who have been ordered by a court to receive treatment services. The youth residing attend school in the facility year round, five days a week for six hours a day. The facility had to be well constructed with durable materials.

The Solution

Modular Genius, Inc. provided a 8,640 sqft modular building that contained, classrooms, technology, media, testing and a library. The building had student restrooms, multiple offices, and a teacher lounge. The project was in the planning stages with the state for years, but was installed in less than 6 months after notice to proceed.
