LODI – Meehleis Modular Buildings, Inc. took first place for its design of modular buildings used at Lexington Elementary School in Los Gatos at the annual Modular Building Institute (MBI) Awards of Distinction.
Projects are submitted from all over the globe for the annual awards. Entries are judged on innovation, energy efficiency, number of days to complete and design with a peer and professional panel of nearly 500 people voting on the projects.
Meehleis Modular’s Lexington Elementary School project was selected in the category of permanent modular education facilities over 20,000 square feet. The award marks the third time in the last two years a Meehleis Modular project has won an award at the MBI annual event.
The Lexington project was constructed with a large percentage of recycled steel and wood products. The project also received a DSA-High Performance Grant and meets Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) standards for its “green” construction and use of high efficiency lighting, plumbing, windows, and quiet heating and cooling systems.
