Modular Green Education Center

The Parks and People Foundation in Baltimore, MD needed a flexible educational space for workshops, training programs, and community activities that further their non-profit mission. The modular building had to be designed for transportation from exhibition at the USGBC’s Greenbuild conference in DC as a demonstration building, before being permanently sited on the non-profit’s 9-acre urban campus in a Baltimore City park.

Modular Genius provided a custom 14’ x 43’ Green Education Center to allow guests to learn more about the installed products and systems, many of which were donated by sponsors. The modular structure’s massing and exterior complement to the new headquarters while providing a contemporary counterpoint to a historic Stone House and Carriage House, all located on the restored site.

Modular Swing Space

A government agency in the process of a major building replacement needed to move its employees to an interim facility.

Modular Genius provided a 9,000 sqft, LEED Silver, slab on grade, permanent modular building. Large open work spaces, along with multiple offices, conference and break rooms, allow the
agency to efficiently continue their work. The exterior conforms with the styles of surrounding buildings and will continue to be used after the main construction project is completed.


‎Greenbuild‬ International Conference and Expo

What an amazing event at the ‪#‎Greenbuild‬ International Conference and Expo! The modular building, constructed by Modular Genius and Mark Line Industries, designed for the Parks and People Foundation by Ziger/Snead Architects and sponsored by Building Design+Construction, was on display.

Thank you for everyone involved who helped create this green space that will give back to the Baltimore Community for years to come!

Greenbuild or Bust!

The Parks & People Green Workforce Development Center modular building, constructed at Mark Line Industries and Modular Genius, is heading to the Washington Convention Center for finishing touches before display at the Greenbuild International Conference and Expo.

With the modular shell constructed at Markline, the interior and exterior was completed after being delivered to Modular Genius. Wood and metal siding, windows and doors, and interior cabinetry were all installed “off-site” with very few remaining items to be installed at the final location.

Parks & People Green Workforce Development Center

“Since 2008, Building Design+Construction has constructed demonstration buildings at the annual Greenbuild International Conference & Expo. These modular structures show how building products are actually used and installed in real buildings. Thousands of Greenbuild attendees have visited these structures.

The Parks & People Green Workforce Development Center will be constructed on Parks & People’s new campus — a 9-acre tract of parkland that was previously part of Druid Hill Park in Baltimore, MD, but separated during development efforts and left to ruin for more than four decades. Now, the site includes restored historic buildings, a LEED Platinum designed headquarters, open space that will soon feature teaching gardens and playspace, and the new Green Workforce Development Center. The new structure will be attached to one of the restored historic buildings, and house Parks & People’s youth college and career readiness program, BRANCHES. It will also serve as headquarters for the organization’s landscape services division where many BRANCHES program participants are eventually hired. The Green Workforce Development Center will be a critical piece of the new campus, providing capacity to strengthen and expand Parks & People’s programs and deepen impact in our key focus areas:

+ Revitalizing neighborhoods through hands on community cleaning and greening activities
+ Building public-private partnerships to sustain green spaces
+ Creating programs that allow children to learn, grow, and explore the natural environment

Parks & People’s new campus and buildings are intended to be public spaces, offering opportunities for rest, recreation, education and job opportunities in the underserved Mondawmin community. This neighborhood was the epicenter of the riots that broke out in Baltimore, but with this investment, is poised to be the epicenter of opportunity.

Parks & People Green Workforce Development Center is a 14×45-foot prefabricated modular facility designed to LEED standards. Set on a 9-acre site, it will be built with products donated by major manufacturers and exhibited at Greenbuild November 18-19, 2015.

Partners include the U.S. Green Building Council, the Parks & People Foundation, Modular Genius and Ziger/Snead Architects.”

Legal Support Modular Office

After reorganization of legal services, a Marine Corps base created a new support section but lacked adequate space to function under one facility.

Modular Genius provided 8,580 sqft of new modular office space that brought together the scattered operations. With an occupancy of 85 people, the building contains many different work areas and facilities to provide legal support for individual Marines, sailors, family members, retirees and other installations.
