Thinking Inside the Box: A Spotlight on Modular and Shipping Container Construction
How are modular building technologies changing (or not) the way our
cities look, feel and operate? Why, how, and where would a developer
pursue these construction types?
Two Case Study Presentations:
citizenM Hotel, Seattle, WA
Mortenson Construction’s Seattle branch recently built the first full modular hotel in North America. Shipped from Europe and stacked like Lego blocks, the modular units that make up citizenM hotel offer a unique construction method in Seattle’s South Lake Union.
Speaker: Nathan Jenkins, Market Executive, Mortenson
Detroit Shipping Co, Detroit, MI
Three Squared Inc’s revolutionary technology uses steel cargo shipping containers which naturally meet all building codes to build eye-catching yet durable mixed use spaces, condominiums, and apartment complexes at significantly lower cost than lumber cookie-cutter construction. Detroit Shipping Co. is a restaurant collective and beer garden offering affordable upscale street food, two full bars, space for start-up retailers, and galleries featuring local artists.
