Champion's Modular Construction Helps Client Meet Market Demand and Site Challenges at Ivy League School

Modular construction enabled New Era Homes to manufacture the modules, deliver to the site, stage and install on the customer's podium while maintaining a weather-tight structure.

PROJECT SCOPE
  • Thirteen 1-bedroom apartments
  • Seven 2-bedroom apartments
  • Four 3-bedroom apartments
CHALLENGE
The new modular building needed to be architecturally consistent with the traditionally constructed apartment building located on the same site.

Client needed to meet a rigid schedule on a tight infill location.

SOLUTION
New Era Homes provided an exterior design that matched the existing building with some architectural components installed on-site.

A mixture of apartment types was used to meet local demand. Staging on-site was constrained; however, the entire modular structure (32 modules) was in place in four days.
