Modular Genius announces the beginning of a new “Green” sustainable project

Modular Genius announces the beginning of a new “Green” Sustainable Learning Studio & Research Learning Lab project built for Barrie School.

In the fall of 2012, Barrie School, in Silver Springs Maryland, plans to open a brand new state of the art learning facility. This new learning pod 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.

Built from many reclaimed materials, 20% of the building materials will contain recycled post consumer products, 2.5% of the project cost will utilizes rapidly renewable materials and 50% of the project cost will use Certified Wood. Further promoting healthy interior learning spaces all interior paints and adhesives are non-toxic. With a shared awareness of energy use and comfort, energy and water efficiency are planned to reach extraordinary levels. This is partially achieved though a user centered system but is firmly reinforced through unwavering systems that manage waste water, utilize rainwater cisterns to support moderate irrigation while supplementing non-potable water use. All of which is clearly tracked on the main dash board just inside the entry. But enough about its green components…

Referred to as studios, this adaptable environment easily converts into large group learning spaces, multiple small group collaboration areas and a large town hall lecture room. This is supported by flexible furniture, moveable wall panels that provide smart board use and support acoustic control, ideally located exterior windows that provide optimal interior layout and meaningful student views. All of which has the use technology so integrated into the environment that it’s invisible.

Modular Genius is proud to be a part of this “Innovation in Design” alongside Barrie School, Hord Coplan Macht, and Kramer Consulting. We will keep you updated throughout this exciting project!

Modular Swing Space

Think Ahead… Think Modular

Even though there may be snow on the ground, and hot chocolate in your hands, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be planning ahead.

Summer is just around the corner, which usually brings about a need of expansion due to summer camps,  summer schools, or even summer daycare programs.

Modular Genius is just the place to look into. Not only are they great at what they do, but they can accommodate any expansion program and assist in the expansion process itself.

Modular Genius can provide permanent modular needs, or temporary, its all up to your needs.

So once again, if you are going to think ahead, be sure to think Modular.
