modular-midrise

A key concept to understand with modular construction is that it is simply a delivery method rather than a different end product. The technology can be used to deliver everything from industrial facilities in temporary applications up to projects like East Bank Flats, an urban luxury midrise building that will occupy the top-end of the market. Situated on an urban infill site in downtown South Bend, street level retail will be constructed as a conventional podium atop which (4) levels of luxury condos and rooftop amenity space will be fabricated offsite and stacked in place. The building is engineered to support a rooftop lap pool, vegetated dog run, grill space, and sun deck.

The NBC affiliate recently toured Mark Line’s Bristol, IN facility to see the project in process. Watch video of the tour and read the entire article here:

Mark Line industries, as a victim of its incredible success (and humility) is hiring for multiple positions. Approximately 20 production positions (With $500.00 hiring bonuses after 90 days), 2 CAD drafters, and one accountant are needed to join our team immediately. Opportunities exist for all levels of experience but positive attitudes are an absolute must. Great pay and remarkably affordable benefits when coupled with a culture of caring and corporate responsibility make working for Mark Line as attractive as the buildings we create. If you’re considering a change, come to the place that thrives on a culture of innovation. Apply for any of these positions by clicking the link below:

Mark Line Industries along with Mosaic Capital Group continue to position themselves as leaders and innovators in the modular construction world. John Morrison, VP, Business Development, Mark Line Industries and Joe Blockno, Managing Partner, Mosaic Capital Group will be hosting educational sessions at the 2016 World of Modular Annual Convention and Tradeshow from March 17th t0 March 20th in San Diego, CA. Contact our sales department today and work with the group that other groups learn from!

From the Modular Building Institute:

“As modular construction has evolved from temporary facilities where blueprints for the ‘real’ building were stored, to a modern method used to construct even very complex buildings, the financial, development, design and construction aspects have similarly become more complex. Mosaic Capital Group and their family of companies, including modular fabricator Mark Line Industries, offer a unique and panoramic view of permanent modular construction (PMC) from the perspectives of every stakeholder involved in a PMC project. Mr. Morrison and Mr. Blockno will discuss the financial implications of modular construction and how it is viewed by typical lenders, REITs and private equity, the considerations of a developer, the perspective of the A/E/C team and their interface with the modular fabricator, and those of the end user, operator, or building occupant.”

Team Oracle USA needed to get their 2017 America’s Cup racing headquarters fully operational in record time to prepare for early stage racing competitions starting this summer. To help achieve this, Nadler Modular Structures shipped four custom, prefabricated buildings from Mark Line’s manufacturing facility in Pennsylvania to Team Oracle USA’s new Bermuda base at the Royal Naval Dockyard.

The time from ordering and constructing the modules to transporting them to Bermuda was less than 60 days; and once received could be installed in less than a week. The mobile structures will be used to house a variety of important services for Team Oracle USA, including: a physicians’ module, a separate medical module, a shower module, and a restroom module.

John Morrison will be moderating a panel on development with modular fabrication for Multifamily Executive this October.

The panel topic is:

Pre-Fab(ulous): The Evolution of Modular Housing            

Once considered an afterthought, this construction technique is rapidly gaining favor among multifamily developers due to its impact on construction cycle times and ultimately, on the bottom line. As the modular building industry matures, the designs are growing in sophistication and scale. Here, some of the nation’s top developers and early adopters will showcase their designs and lessons learned along the way.

Long time inspiration and champion of prefabrication and modularization, Dwell magazine (if you don’t have a subscription you should get one, and if you don’t follow the writings of former editor there Allison Arieff at @aarieff then what are you waiting for?) featured Mark Line’s project with Garrison-Architects of Brooklyn.  Go subscribe to Dwell  then follow @aarieff and don’t forget to follow us at Mark Line Modular.

modular urban housing

Our urban density interim housing prototype fabricated for NYC OEM and FEMA with partners Garrison-Architects and AMSS was recently opened to the public for the Open House NY weekend (OHNY).  The fine folks at CurbedNY took a very detailed tour of the project and had many nice things to say.  Well worth your time to take the photo tour and read the article if you haven’t had a change to see it yourself.  Photos courtesy of CurbedNY and Evan Bindelglass.  Read more here.

Popular architecture, design, and sustainability blog “Inhabitat” recently took a tour through Mark Line’s urban interim housing prototype in Cadman Plaza, Brooklyn, NYC.  The building was produced in response to the What If NYC… design competition and was partially funded by a block grant from FEMA.  Mark Line teamed with Garrison-Architects of Brooklyn, NY and AMSS of Vienna, VA to deliver the project.  The blog post also features video of the units being fabricated at our Bristol, IN facility and being test-fit together before being de-constructed and transported to Brooklyn.  Read more about our modular urban housing.
