We are pleased to announce that Triumph has entered into a strategic partnership with GreenStaxx.  This collaborative arrangement enables GreenStaxx and Triumph to meet the growing demand for more sophisticated living communities at schools and colleges using pre-engineered designs that eliminate the frustration with the lead-times, variables, disruption and cost inherent in traditional construction. Based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, GreenStaxx is an affiliate of Oaktree Development, an an award-winning developer of transit-oriented, mixed-use, multifamily developments including Thorndike Place in Arlington, 28 Austin Street in Newtonville, and Brookside Square in West Concord.

GreenStaxx provides a solution that utilizes a patented digital library of pre-designed and pre-engineered units that can be assembled like Lego blocks into a multitude of building configurations. Coupled with a team-oriented integration strategy that includes architects, construction managers, and modular manufacturers, GreenStaxx and its partners provide owners with a process that lowers costs, improves quality and reduces construction time. The detailed planning and specifications owners typically associate with Building Information Modeling, or “BIM” – especially the complexity of mechanical, electrical, plumbing and other interconnections within a building – are delivered using the GreenStaxx solution. This process builds on the work that earned the firm awards from the Urban Land Institute and Multifamily Housing Executive.

“We believe that the principles of the GreenStaxx system – which has achieved superior and replicable results in the development of modular multifamily housing – lends itself well to the production of modular student housing,” said Arthur Klipfel, founder and president of GreenStaxx. “Triumph Modular has a long-term demonstrated track record of success working with owners, architects and engineers to design and build modular buildings across the product spectrum. We look forward to building a partnership that will not only benefit our firms, but lay the groundwork to transform the student housing industry by combining the benefits of mass production provided by GreenStaxx with the speed and quality assurance delivered by modular construction.”

The expertise that GreenStaxx and Oaktree have within the multi-family market is perfectly suited to meet the demand from students and schools for these new living spaces. We’re thrilled to combine our expertise in off-site modular construction with the efficiencies inherent in the GreenStaxx pre-engineered solution.”

GreenStaxx is currently building a network of strategic partnerships with construction managers, architects, and modular manufacturers to create an ecosystem that will enable developers of all types of modular housing to realize the benefits of mass production, based on the principles of standardization, repetition and continuous improvement.

The new partnership builds on Triumph’s work with  dozens of schools and universities including Harvard, MIT, Tufts, Williams, Belmont Hill and The Carroll School.

A graduate of Boston University School of Law (90), Glenn left a legal career for Triumph in 2003. A LEED AP (USGBC) he works with clients primarily in preconstruction to form healthy foundations for successful projects. Glenn advocates for the value proposition in prefabricated forms of construction, believing in the many benefits of “activation space” or “swing space” as well in the “modularization” of permanent building construction. He also enjoys an active curriculum in architecture and building science.
