PREFAB FRIDAY: Triumph SmartSpace
Posted By Emily Pilloton On March 9, 2007 @ 3:20 pm In Architecture,Prefab Housing | 4 Comments
As you may have noticed, many of our recent prefab posts have been non-residential, from ProjectFrog’s  modular classrooms, to Hotel Everland  and Toby Long’s interview  regarding the possibilities for prefab to expand into more commercial markets. We’re constantly impressed by the modern prefab houses being built, but also love to see prefab being applied to more public structures. New England-based modular building company Triumph’s SmartSpace  design serves as a great example- and last December they successfully installed and opened their first prefab classroom  in Lincoln, Massachusetts. The highly-innovative building system epitomizes prefab “speed, style, and sustainability ,” can be adapted to virtually any site, and ready to inhabit in as little as 60 days. And if there was any question as to the green-ness of the structures, the SmartSpace website proudly lists their Top 10 Reasons SmartSpace is Green , which include everything from recycled carpet tiles and steel to daylighting and efficient HVAC systems.
While the first built and installed SmartSpace  is being used as a classroom, the system lends itself to a variety of functions, from medical facilities to retail outfits, and more. The structures are available in 2 “stock” sizes , one of which is LEED-certified , and also offers customization services  for more specialized projects from one to five stories, 500 to 50,000 square feet. And with its impressive list  of eco-friendly and high-performance technologies and materials, SmartSpace is a great example of what prefab can and should stand for- efficiency, sustainability, and flexibility.
