06/15/18: Recently, Michael Shilale Architects, LLP invited staff and clients considering modular construction to watch as a new piece of modular building was being assembled at the Jesse Kaplan school site.
This "floor-less" modular building is different from most. They have no "floor" and so are designed to sit on a concrete slab, eliminating the need for a crawl space. The individual parts are built off site and transported on trucks to the construction site. From there, pieces are lifted by a crane and gently placed down where workers will weld the sections together.
