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:
