On Wednesday, the Modular Building Institute released the all new MBI 2019 Report. This report is the industry’s most comprehensive collection of research and findings on permanent modular and relocatable modular buildings. Besides providing an overview of the modular construction industry, it also features in-depth analysis on the U.S., Canadian, and international markets.
We would like to thank MBI for featuring us in their overview of the modular industry and in the relocatable building section. Below, check out our feature photo from the MBI 2019 Report:
Production in this region (New England and New York) went up by 4.2 percent in 2018. Particularly, multi-family projects in New York and Massachusetts increased in number. Top markets in this region included education, offices, hospitality, and multi-family. Multi-family market in this region is worth $11 billion in 2019, and will grow to over $14 billion in 2020 and 2021.
About the Modular Building Institute
Founded in 1983, the Modular Building Institute (MBI) is the international non-profit trade association serving modular construction. Members are manufacturers, contractors, and dealers in two distinct segments of the industry – permanent modular and temporary modular. In addition, associate members are companies supplying building components, services, and financing. Above all, MBI strives to expand the use of offsite construction through innovative practices, outreach and education, and recognition.

What is Building Information Modeling?Known as BIM, Building Information Modeling is a digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of a facility. A BIM is a shared knowledge resource for information about a facility forming a reliable basis for decisions during its life-cycle. Source.Read More
What Might the New Housing Units Look Like?Google plans to develop 15,000 housing units on company land within the next 10 years. Hence, time is of the essence. Modular is the most time efficient, cost efficient, and resource conscious way to build multi-unit housing. Regarding this, check out Triumph Modular’s housing development in Acton, Massachusetts. These spacious, semi-detached homes give the feeling of a comfortable suburban setting.Read More
Modular buildings are used Healthcare
The world of healthcare and medical facilities is driven by unprecedented demand. Born between 1946 and 1963, the Boomer generation is the largest cohort of Americans to reach old age. How must we provide adequate care for so many senior citizens? How can we decrease costs and make healthcare affordable for seniors, their families, and taxpayers?Read More
Chicago-based construction firm opens new manufacturing facility to address the Affordable Housing Shortage. Could this help Boston?Last week, Skender opened their new facility in Chicago’s Little Village neighborhood. Located at 3348 S. Pulaski Road, the factory will produce modular affordable housing units. Why modular? This method ensures that all units are built under controlled factory conditions, away from unpredictable weather patterns. It increases quality and lowers waste. Therefore, one can create more housing at a price that is affordable to most. Read More
Although our projects usually center around educational and commercial buildings, Triumph also does multi-unit residential development. Looking back, let’s take a peek at one of our previous projects, a multi-unit residential housing development in Acton, MA. Acton Housing Authority, McCarthy Village II is a 12 unit rental housing complex. Read More
When it comes to modular buildings, most people think first about utility, speed, and cost savings. But what about aesthetics and innovative modular? Everyone is happier when they have a good looking building with the custom features they need. Hence, Triumph is Redefining Modular. We are reshaping the modular mindset, one visually stunning building at a time.
Making Temporary Spaces Attractive with Modular
One of our proudest moments in modular innovation and construction was SproutSpace. In 2013, it was part of an exhibit on school buildings at the National Building Museum in DC. What makes the award-winning design stand out from other classroom spaces? Its adaptable configuration, energy conscious features that include passive rainwater collection and use of natural light vs electric lighting, and high air quality make it stand out from the pack. Best of all, the solar-ready butterfly roof and attractive green exterior panels make for a unique and visually appealing look.
Another Triumph achievement was our 2010 project for Harvard University. We designed, built, and installed a 5,700 sq ft childcare center in just six weeks. While this is a temporary modular building, it features alternating exterior panels in white and grey that look striking when lit up at night. Among its eco-friendly attributes are solar tube skylights to maximize natural light use and a white rubber roof that reflects solar heat. Furthermore, the building contains recycled materials for the interior walls and carpet tiles.
High-End Innovative Modular in Science
As we all know, the Boston area is one of the world’s hubs for scientific and technological achievement. Our universities are top-notch and need science laboratories of matching quality. Hence, we built the Wellesley College Temporary Science Center and were the contractors for the Harvard Pagliuca Life Lab. Built in only six months, Wellesley’s Science Center served as the base of their science learning and research operations while their permanent facility underwent renovations. Although this building was temporary, it met guidelines for Lab Biosafety Level 2. BSL-2 refers to spaces that exhibit specific controls for the containment of microbes & biological agents.
Indeed, modular lends itself so well to high-end science labs that Harvard University contracted with us to help construct their Pagliuca Life Labs. These labs allow students to explore and test their entrepreneurial ideas, and make scientific discoveries and inventions in a professional-grade wet lab.
