Williams Scotsman takes the Awards


The Modular Building Institute (MBI) recognized Williams Scotsman, an Algeco Scotsman company and leading provider of modular space and storage solutions in North America, with several honors, including first place in temporary healthcare modular space and marketing.

In total, the company received four MBI Awards of Distinction for projects completed in 2010 in the healthcare, institutional, temporary office space and marketing categories.

"I'm especially pleased that our temporary space projects gained recognition this year," said Michele Cunningham, vice president of marketing for Williams Scotsman. "Temporary modular space serves a critical role for our customers -- enabling continued operations during times of transition or permanent new construction. We commend all the teams involved in these award-winning projects."
The awards honor innovation and design excellence within the commercial modular space industry.

First Place Temporary Healthcare under 5,000 sq. ft.

Also during this year's awards banquet Joseph Lopardo, vice president of modular building for Williams Scotsman, was acknowledged for his contributions as the outgoing 2010 MBI board president.
"While we are proud to highlight our successes, we'd be remiss if we didn't acknowledge the difficulty we faced as an industry in 2010. Despite challenging economic times, we believe we set a solid foundation that will help fuel future growth in 2011," said Lopardo. "During my term as president, the organization made significant strides on common issues, such as the International Green Code (IGCC). I'm confident that the incoming MBI board will continue to build awareness of our industry and fuel growth across all building sectors in the year ahead."

About Modular Buildings
A modular building is a factory-built structure that complies with the same building codes as traditional construction. Modular construction is ideal for any application including education and government facilities as illustrated above. They offer the advantages of early occupancy, portability, financial flexibility, and often cost savings. Modular buildings have established a growing niche in the construction process for organizations that need quality temporary or permanent space without the delays often associated with traditional “site built” construction. Modular buildings have also been identified as a more eco-friendly building option for those companies looking to reduce their carbon footprint.
