Porta-King modular and prefabricated building solutions

Here are this month’s modular and prefabricated building solutions courtesy of Porta-King:


Solution #1

sol1The challenge we faced on this project wasn’t constructing a 12′ wide x 22′ long prefabricated steel shelter, we’ve built quite a few of those over the years.  The challenge was lifting this shelter to it’s final resting place that was eight floors up on top of a downtown parking garage deck.

The installation process went great!  The crane arrived early in the morning with all the necessary equipment.  The prefab shelter was waiting on the back of a 40′ flat bed truck.

About 30 minutes later our crew had completed the process of  securing the lifting straps to the factory installed lifting rings.  From there the shelter began it’s journey up to it’s new home.

The entire process took less than 3 hours.  A considerable time savings compared to constructing the shelter on-site.  As you can see from the photos this prefab shelter included full perimeter glazing and an integral roof.

sol2Once the shelter was positioned on to the top of the concrete curb our crew installed anchors to complete the installation.

Solution #2

sol3A German based manufacturer of high end ceramic filters contracted with our customer to design and build a series of robots to produce filters in their newly constructed $44 million dollar manufacturing facility in Germany. A critical element in the design of these robots was an environmentally controlled room to protect the robots from plant dust and adverse temperature swings.

After completion of the design and fabrication of the robots, our customer had to demonstrate to their customer the complete procedure of fabrication of the filters and test run the system at their facility in Upstate New York. After their customers approval, the whole system was broken down and shipped to Germany where it would be reconstructed at their new manufacturing facility.

There were several reasons our customer selected a Porta-King modular room to create these enclosures: 

  • Outstanding insulation values.
  • Durable construction features.
  • Their customer wanted enclosures with a “high-tech” appearance to compliment their new “state of the art” facility.
  • System flexibility that made it easy to change the wall configuration from solid panel to framed opening, or door to window.
  • Ease of assembly.
  • Flexibility that facilitated take down and reassembly in Germany with a 100% recapture of their initial materials investment.
