2016 ESPN Broadcast Village – First Place Relocatable Modular Special Use over 10,000sq. feet

In 2015, ESPN took over the broadcast rights for the US Open tennis tournament. The USTA has been running our nation’s most prominent tennis outing since 1920. ESPN wanted new facilities that would meet their needs to provide its world-class brand of coverage of the event. They chose Triumph Modular in 2015 for a multi-year engagement.

The requirements of putting on this “show” are intense relative to the schedule and the overall gravity of the production. The ESPN Broadcast Village started with a two-story broadcast media complex of 15,000 square feet and a single-story building of 8,000 square feet. The needs of this client and who they host are ever-changing and dynamic. The electrical and mechanical requirements for broadcasting are highly specialized and complex, requiring effective teaming and collaborative efforts to accomplish the project goals. Triumph Modular’s solution is a building designed for quick installation and easy removal every August for the US Open. See more on the ESPN Broadcast Village project.

2011 & 2012 Harvard Yard Childcare Center – First Place and Best of Show Green Building

Triumph Modular designed, built, and installed an innovative 5,700 square-foot childcare facility on the campus of Harvard University in just six weeks. For the next 18 months, the Harvard Yard Child Care Center operated in the building Triumph Modular provided while its permanent location was undergoing renovations. 

The building features a variety of green, sustainable features to achieve the highest-quality, healthy environment for children. A focused design and construction plan for maximum energy efficiency includes solar tube skylights to maximize natural light use, sustainable “Green Guard” insulation, high-grade sealants, and a white rubber roof reflecting solar heat.  “When you walk inside, there is an immediate sense that this is a healthy environment. That’s a good comfort for parents and staff.”, said Peter Anderson of Anderson and Anderson in San Francisco, designers of the Harvard Yard Child Care Center. Triumph Modular was proud to construct a healthy, bright space for these young children, even if it was only a temporary one. See more on the Harvard Yard Childcare Center project.
