Innovative Modular Solutions has been incorporating sustainable features in our standard modular buildings since long before the green building initiative came to the forefront of the construction industry. IMS has included modular green upgrades on many customized modular buildings, and has the ability to add other sustainable building options on both portable and modular buildings.

Modular buildings can be designed to contribute credits toward LEED certification. If you are planning to apply for LEED certification on your next project, IMS can provide design assistance with this process.

GREEN FEATURES IN IMS MODULAR CLASSROOM BUILDINGS

  • Bard heat pump systems to reduce energy consumption
  • Programmable thermostats to reduce energy consumption and for thermal comfort
  • Temperature control in each modular classroom for thermal comfort
  • HVAC occupancy sensors to reduce energy consumption
  • CO2 sensors for air-quality management and to reduce energy consumption
  • 410A HVAC refrigerant to support reduction of ozone depletion and climate change
  • Lighting occupancy sensors to reduce energy consumption
  • Fluorescent lighting with T8 bulbs to reduce energy consumption
  • Low VOC adhesives & sealants, flooring, paints for air-quality management
  • Formaldehyde free insulation and composite wood for air-quality management
  • Double insulated windows for energy management
  • Materials (steel, carpeting, ceiling tile, etc.) with recycled content
  • Metered faucets for water conservation
  • Buildings manufactured in factory-controlled environment to reduce waste and minimize site disturbance

 

POTENTIAL MODULAR GREEN FEATURE UPGRADES ON IMS BUILDINGS

  • Pervious pavement to reduce stormwater runoff
  • Low-flow toilets with automatic sensors (or dual flush) for water conservation
  • Metered faucets with automatic sensors for water conservation
  • Waterless urinals for water conservation
  • Graywater recycling for water conservation
  • Increased insulation to reduce energy consumption
  • Bard Quiet Climate heat pump HVAC for enhanced acoustical performance
  • Computer-controlled HVAC system to reduce energy consumption
  • Closed-loop HVAC to accommodate geothermal systems
  • Increased energy-efficient lighting
  • Solar panels to provide alternative energy source
  • Increased window area for daylighting and views
  • Light tubes to provide more natural lighting
  • Low/E glazing and sunshades to reduce energy consumption
  • Additional components made with rapidly renewable or recycled materials
  • Recycling stations to promote recycling of waste
