Greenbelt, MD – A large science organization needed extra office space to support the expansion of one of its programs. Fast tracked within the federal government, the new project presented the agency with a short deadline – just a couple of months – to acquire new and modernized office space suitable for the team’s needs.
Construction required the demolition of a circa-1970’s modular four-floor complex already on site, followed by the design and installation of a new eight-floor building that included access via ADA-compliant ramps and decks. The interior of the new building would need to include cubicle space in a specific, unique layout for team members.
The organization's laboratory is tasked with the research, design and scientific innovation most vital to the agency's science programs. To support a new effort, it received modern modular space to house the team’s 30 scientists and administrative personnel.
Both before and after the award of the building contract, Mobile Modular’s Mid-Atlantic team met with agency officials many times to ascertain and address the specific workspace needs. The new plan included an eight-floor, state of the art modular building system, a structure incorporating "clear span" beams that would cross the building length and allow available work space to be reconfigured as needed in the future.
A properly planned demolition and debris clearing was followed by an efficient installation of the new building, designed per customer specification to utilize land occupied by the original modular unit. In order to accommodate the required specific cubicle layout, Mobile Modular designed the building with "clear span" beams, eliminating the need for interior load bearing walls or posts.
