Used Modular Offices Can Help with the Retail Boom in Florida

Posted on March 24, 2016

Miami, Florida has been a hot spot for the retail and hospitality industry for the past few years, and according to the Miami Downtown Development Authority, it is about to grow by an additional 22 percent this year. In addition, retail spending in the area is predicted to grow by 5 - 10 percent over the next three years due to an increase in residents and visitors.

Now is the time for new businesses to take advantage of the upswing in the retail and hospitality industry. One of the quickest ways of doing so is by utilizing a used modular building. Pre-leased modular buildings offer developers and business owners the luxury of having a modular office almost immediately. These buildings can be utilized as sales offices, retail stores and welcome centers. By selecting pre-leased buildings, companies can open their doors sooner and generate revenue faster than having an office traditionally built.

Modular offices can be refurbished and reconfigured to include bathrooms or fitted with individual offices; these buildings can be customized to meet specific needs. Temporary modular buildings are not just limited to short term occupancy, but can be used as a long term space solution as well. See below for some of our immediately available buildings in Florida.

Modular Classrooms support the Expanding Construction Industry

Posted on March 07, 2016
The expansion of the construction industry has been underway for the past several years and 2016 is no exception to that trend. Thanks to report published by Dodge Data and Analytics, it is noted that the education industry is likely to see a 9% increase in construction among K- 12 schools due to the passing of school bonds. Modular Building Institute has also noted that larger schools with a high growth rate are more likely to use modular classrooms to help with their space needs. Texas, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Virginia and Maryland, for example, are some states that are more likely to utilize modular classrooms.
 
Modular construction offers the best space solution for schools because the majority of the construction takes place off-site creating little disruption for students, teachers and staff members. Depending on the school’s need, modular classrooms can be customized to accommodate their requirements for classroom space, offices, libraries, cafeterias, media centers, etc. Because site preparation and modular construction occur simultaneously, there is a considerably shortened completion schedule that allows for earlier occupancy.
 
There are two different types of modular buildings available to school districts, permanent and temporary. Permanent modular classrooms are designed for a specific location and offer a space solution to clients looking for a long term need. The second option is temporary modular classrooms. These classrooms are most often used for a specific time period while a facility is being built or renovated. They often benefit schools that have a fluctuating student population and offer the ability to be relocated to various campuses throughout the district as needs change.
 
In addition to these two main options, there are also used modular buildings that are immediately available. Used modular classrooms are a smart choice for school districts that have an urgent space need.  Pre-leased classrooms can be reconfigured and refurbished to meet any specific needs of the district in a short period of time.
 
At M SPACE we have a wide array of modular solutions including pre-leased buildings. Our available inventory includes classrooms and offices of various sizes.

Understanding the Speed and Versatility of Used Modular Classrooms

Posted on February 22, 2016

When thinking about pre-leased modular buildings, the first two words that come to mind should be Speed and Versatility. Because used modular buildings can be delivered immediately they offer a fast and efficient space solution. These used portable buildings offer versatility because they can be refurbished and reconfigured to meet the different needs of various customers. Used modular buildings are perfect for additions to existing structures or as standalone buildings.

Take Long Beach Island (LBI) Consolidated School District in New Jersey for example. One of their elementary schools was damaged badly after Hurricane Sandy and they needed an immediate space solution.  We provided them with 7,712 square feet of temporary modular space including eight classrooms, restrooms and administrative space with connecting decks and walkways. The used modular classrooms were delivered and installed within three weeks, allowing the students to return to their normal schedule.

Currently, LBI no longer has a need for temporary space as their current building has since been repaired. These buildings are now available and waiting to take on a new purpose for a new school. Below are a few of the featured available buildings that were used for Long Beach Island (LBI) Consolidated School District:

Permanent Modular Campus Time Lapse Video

Posted on February 15, 2016

As many of you are aware from our previous blogs, this past year we were fortunate enough to continue our partnership with Classical Academy that originated in 2010. We were initially able to provide them with a 24,304 sq. ft. temporary modular campus that consisted of 21 classrooms and an administrative office building.

By 2014 the school had outgrown their temporary campus and was in need of a permanent space solution. We once again worked with Classical Academy and provided them with a 50,000 sq. ft. modular school that consisted of 32 classrooms, 3 science labs, 2 conference rooms, guidance & administrative offices, nurse’s office, library, art & music rooms and multi-stall restrooms.

By partnering with Classical Academy on their temporary and permanent campuses we’ve had the opportunity to help with two very important milestones. Below is a great time lapse video that showcases the new permanent modular campus. Check it out!

Learn How Used Modular Classrooms can Help Ease your Space Needs

Posted on January 18, 2016

Many school districts are constantly seeing fluctuations in student population for many different reasons. When districts encounter a sudden increase in student enrollment there becomes an urgent need for additional space. At this point, many school districts will start researching what their options are for additional classrooms. Pre-leased or used modular classrooms are often the best route for districts because these classrooms offer a quick and efficient space solution. Because these buildings are ready to go they can be shipped and assembled immediately. Used modular classrooms can be used as standalone buildings or extensions onto existing facilities.

M SPACE currently has used modular classrooms, used modular dining rooms as well as pre-leased modular restrooms available immediately that are perfect for schools in Texas and Louisiana. Check out a few of our featured available buildings below.

 

Modular Dining Room: 3,264 sq. ft.

Temporary to Permeant Modular Classrooms: A Partnership from Start to Finish

Posted on December 21, 2015

2015 has been an eventful year for M SPACE. We are grateful to have had the opportunity to work on many great projects this past year.  As we reflect back at what we’ve accomplished, one project in particular stands out the most. Our most memorable project in 2015 was the 50,000 sq. ft. permanent modular school we constructed for Classical Academy.

Our partnership with Classical Academy originally began in 2010 after they first received their charter. The school needed an entire campus in a short period of time and decided modular construction was their best option. By utilizing pre-leased modular buildings, the campus could be delivered immediately and would be ready for when classes started in the fall. The final campus was 24,304 sq. ft. of temporary modular space that consisted of 21 classrooms and an administrative office building.

By 2014, Classical Academy was out growing their temporary campus and in need of a permanent space solution. Because they were satisfied with the quality of their temporary buildings and the working relationship they had with us, they again decided to use M SPACE and modular construction for their new permanent school. We worked closely with Classical Academy to design a 50,000 square foot modular school that would accommodate K-12 students. The new modular campus consists of 32 classrooms, 3 science labs, 2 conference rooms, guidance & administrative offices, nurse’s office, library, art & music rooms and multi-stall restrooms. The modular campus is also equipped with cutting edge technology such as fiber optic wiring, smart boards in every classroom and a lockdown system. 

By partnering with Classical Academy on their temporary and permanent campuses we’ve had the opportunity to help with two very important milestones.  Check out some these before and after photos of Classical Academy.
