In 2008, Triumph installed the nation’s first truly high-performing relocatable modular classroom at the Carroll School in Lincoln, Mass.
Modular Building and Sustainability
Green building, when combined with modular construction, creates a better-built environment. Here at Triumph, we are able to create buildings that exceed building codes. Sustainable modular buildings excel in their contribution to conservation, efficiency, and human health and comfort. We believe in the green building advantage and can make a contribution by understanding the principles behind them.
Modular buildings are themselves inherently sustainable. Here, you can see the following are green building advantages you can leverage when using modular methods for your project:
- Reduction in transportation energy as a result of workers commuting to a factory instead of the job site and supply yards throughout the day.
- Reuse and re-purpose of modular buildings: they can be disassembled and the modules relocated or refurbished for new use. Thus, it reduces the demand for raw materials typically required to create a new building from scratch.
- Reduction in material waste: factory setting material procurement is well controlled, thus recycling programs are easier to implement. Furthermore, the indoor environment prevents material waste due to weather damage.
It should be added here that PMC projects are regularly meeting LEED standards today.
Whether you are seeking to meet the LEED standards set out by the U.S. Green Building Council or are trying to do your part by building sustainable, Triumph has the experience and know how to help you “go green”.
