Mobile Modular Updated a Movable Control Shed to Safely House Dam Controls


LaGrange Lock and Dam is a complex on the Illinois River at Versailles, Illinois. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers built the complex from 1936 to 1939. LaGrange Lock and Dam needed a Control Shed that would be placed inside the dam area to control the dam and locks. When river waters rise, the control shed needs to be moved out of the dam for safety reasons.

The Solutions

Mobile Modular was contracted to provide two 8×8 modular units for their ease of portability and quick electrical disconnect to relocate out of the dam area. The walls are composed of 3″ thick composite sandwich panels and have a 90 MPH wind load. This unit is also constructed with a 1/12 pitch shed roof, 20 gauge insulated steel doors with glass, LED lights, an electrical package for quick release during transport, and an HVAC system.

The entire modular building is soundproof due to the high noise capacity of the dam. The building was constructed on a skid mount frame, so it can easily be relocated with a forklift as the water levels fluctuate.
