Phoenix Modular Elevator was honored as an affiliate to the Award of Distinction with partner Silver Creek Industries at the annual World of Modular Conference held in Hollywood, Florida in March of this year. The World of Modular event is sponsored by the Modular Building Institute.Awards of Distinction are the modular building industry’s premier awards program recognizing design excellence in structures built utilizing prefabricated systems. This is the second year in a row that Phoenix Modular Elevator has walked away with hardware as a recognition of the product and use.
The award winning project, KIPP Academy, is a three-story, 27,429 square-foot structure which houses an entire charter school campus and related functional spaces. The building contains 18 classrooms, a kitchen, multipurpose space, administrative spaces, interior corridors and an interior elevator provided by Phoenix Modular Elevator. The building exterior features plaster with a bright color palette and aluminum glazing systems. The finished building reflects the coordinated efforts of all team members to provide a design focused experience. Due to the complexity and scope of the project, the ability to perform the work in a factory environment provided the opportunity for significant cost reductions and increased quality control measures. “We could not be happier with our second straight trophy and working with our friends at Silver Creek,” said Allison Allgaier, President of Phoenix Modular Elevator. “Our whole crew works hard and this award is proof that all the effort pays off.” This project is not the first time that Phoenix and Silver Creek have collaborated on highly successful projects. West Creek Academy and Sunnyslope Elementary School, both in California were modular building projects completed in 2017.
Phoenix Modular Elevator is located in Mount Vernon, Illinois and has been building high-quality modular elevators for over a decade. They have been placed in new, retrofit and modular applications all over the United States and Canada.
