Low-end fiber cement products can be found cladding relocatable modular buildings across the country.  For buildings like this, residential grade fiber cement products work perfectly well at a competitive price point.  But for a high-traffic, permanent and site-specific modular building such as a hotel, high-density fiber cement is preferable.

Or it was until we learned of the Ultra High Performance Concrete Panels fabricated in the U.S. by TAKTL.  These glass fiber reinforced concrete panels take the durability factor of fiber cement to an even higher level and introduce custom textures and patterns.

Check their products out for yourself and keep your eyes peeled in 2015 as you may just see this product cladding a forthcoming Mark Line project.

We think Vaproshield has one of the best products out there for weather resistive barriers in rainscreen envelope design.  Their self-adhering sheets work very well in the indoor fabrication environment and even further accelerate the construction process in comparison to mechanically fastened products.

Our friends at Vaproshield recently featured our collaboration in NYC on their site, saying:

WRAPSHIELD SA® SELF-ADHERED was a logical choice for Mark Line Industries and the project team. The product provides the 12’ by 40’ units superior protection against changing weather. WRAPSHIELD SA® SELF-ADHERED helps to regulate air flow to keep units cool in the summer and warm in the winter, thus reducing energy costs. The product’s vapor permeability can reduce the effects of moisture damage such as mold, mildew and rot to assist in ensuring the units’ lasting structural integrity. VaproShield products contain zero VOCs, meeting Mark Line Industries’ rigorous sustainable design build standard.
