Gallery: The Modules: LEED Silver Modular Housing At Temple University

 
The green rooftop deck also provides residents a place to enjoy being outside and has great views of the city.

The five-story building located right next to Temple University’s main campus includes a ground floor parking garage, a bike garage, and a maintenance station topped with four stories of apartments and a roof deck. Thanks to a double-H layout, each apartment at The Modules has access to views and light. Inside there are 72 apartments with either 2 or 3 bedrooms priced at appropriate rental rates that students could afford.

The complex is aiming for LEED Silver certification under the LEED for Homes Mid-rise pilot program, and it is expected to be the largest modular LEED-certified building in the country. The project’s stormwater management system includes a rain garden, a green roof, and pervious pavers that reduce stormwater runoff by 50%. On the exterior of the building is a fiber cement rain screen facade system, that protects the building from the elements.
