Innovative Modular Solutions Receives First Place at Modular Industry's Annual Conference



​​Innovative Modular Solutions (IMS), headquartered in Oswego, Illinois, received a first place award at the annual Modular Building Institute (MBI) Convention on March 12, in Orlando, Florida.

MBI’s Awards of Distinction recognizes modular construction projects that demonstrate architectural excellence, technical innovation, cost-effectiveness, energy efficiency, and an accelerated construction timeline.

Originally, WellSpan was looking to add a mobile imaging (MRI unit) trailer to provide diagnostic services for patients at their newly constructed facility. Due to a desire to provide a more permanent option, IMS was contacted to provide a solution for a permanent building to house a Philips Ingenia Elition 3.0T X MRI.  

The building was delivered with all specialty components included, allowing for the construction disruption period to be limited to approximately 90 days, thus reducing overall construction time by 50 percent over conventional construction at a cost significantly less than the site-built option. The MRI magnet was crane lifted and installed through the roof of the installed modular building. The speed and knowledge used during this project allowed IMS to minimize any cost overruns and to help the WellSpan staff get their patients a permanent place for the MRI through this quick turnaround.  

Each year the Awards of Distinction are given to recognize the best modular building construction projects completed by MBI members. An impartial panel of industry and non-industry construction and code experts, architects and engineers, and marketing professionals review each entry.

“It is again an honor for IMS to win an award!” commented Kevin Maiden, Vice President of IMS. “We attribute all of our awards to our committed and dedicated employees, vendors and subcontractors. We are also honored to have great diverse and open-minded customers that allow the modular industry to provide a high-end product that both looks and performs very well. We are especially proud of this building because of its diverse use.”

About Modular Buildings

Modular buildings utilize the resource-efficient process of factory-built construction, where the initial construction occurs in a controlled manufacturing environment. Modular buildings can be used for both temporary and permanent applications and are appropriate for a wide variety of uses, including schools, medical facilities and commercial offices. 

About the Modular Building Institute

The Modular Building Institute is the nonprofit trade association representing companies around the world involved in the manufacturing and distribution of commercial factory-built structures. MBI provides services and promotes professionalism through communication, education, and recognition.
