SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA (March 28, 2016) Britco was honored with two awards at the 2016 Modular Building Institute (MBI) Awards held in San Diego, California.
Britco’s Legacy Animation Transformation Video was awarded Best in Show for Marketing Multimedia. The Legacy Transformation Video demonstrates how Britco can take a temporary modular building configuration and disassemble, redesign, transport and reconfigure it in another location as a permanent structure.
First Place for Greatest Renovation was given to Britco’s Meadowridge School renovation. The project started as a standard placement of modular buildings, then evolved over time into the addition of an innovative covered outdoor play area bridging the modular classrooms.
“As always, Britco is appreciative of the recognition that these awards bring,” said Obie Erickson, President of Britco. “We’re very pleased that the Modular Building Institute chose to highlight some of the innovation that we at Britco pride ourselves on.”
The MBI is the trade association representing companies in Canada, the United States and 14 other countries involved in the construction and distribution of commercial modular buildings. Entries were reviewed by an impartial panel of industry and non-industry construction and code experts, architects and engineers, and marketing professionals.
Building entries were judged on architectural excellence, technical innovation and sustainability, cost effectiveness, energy efficiency and calendar days to complete.
