Modular Genius is proud to share the Modular Building Institute Building of the week, Barrie School. This “Green” sustainable Learning Studio & Research Learning Lab project was designed to incorporate new and innovative green sustainable components highly recognized by the US Green Building Council. In short, this facility embraces nearly every definition of environmental stewardship, energy efficiency, increased Eco-awareness and healthy interiors.
A Montessori School wanted to provide their students and teachers a beautiful new space to work, study, and interact in new and different ways. Tall ceilings, movable walls, and plenty of windows was required.
Modular Genius and its affiliates produced a LEED qualified Design Build modular campus on a highly accelerated time schedule. The two green buildings were 6,480 sqft and connected with decking to create a changeable and adaptable environment both indoors and out.
On June 28 Modular Genius, along with architect Hord Coplan Macht, will deliver a presentation at the Modular Building Institute (MBI) DC Modular Construction Summit on Green Schools. The topic will focus on Green Building and the ability of modular construction to achieve the goals associated with these projects. We hope to present those attending with a new look at Modular Buildings, and advocate these environmentally responsible and affordable structures.
Green Schools is now open at the National Building Museum. The general contractor Modular Genius and manufacturer Mobile Modular Express have installed a cross section exhibit to compare a traditional modular classroom to a green modular classroom as used in the recently completed Barrie School Learning Lab and Research Studio, located in Silver Spring, Maryland.
Barrie School, Hord Coplan Macht, and Modular Genius are proud to invite you to visit the Green Schools exhibit, which will run March 3, 2013 through January 5, 2014.
