the Schofield Barracks Logistical Complex. The design emphasized
privacy and confidentiality to accommodate high-level intelligence
meetings for strategic and logistical analysis for the 25th Infantry
for the U.S. Army. The buildings line both sides of a street and
each serves a specific, sequential function. The project was awarded
Best in Show by the national Modular Building Institute.
The Army Corps

quickly. We had 150 days to manufacture, ship, deliver and install
54 modules. The Army’s original plan for site-built construction
would have required extensive removal of old housing and grading.
General contractors said that there was no way to meet the schedule.
Space was invited to present modular alternatives. That the buildings

used standard blocks and piers that went directly on the ground,
eliminating extensive site work. A temporary site was originally
planned while construction was underway. Modular construction avoided
