The Scoop: Modular Construction
A trending topic of 2016 that’s rolling into 2017 is modular construction. Tocci has built several modular residential developments, including Park87 and Chelsea Place. This year, Tocci will begin construction on 32 Cambridge Street in Boston, MA. The newly constructed portion of the project will consist of 125 modular units. It will take assembling 128 modular boxes together to create these units. Across the U.S. cities like NYC are seeing a rise in modular buildings. In late 2016, at 32 stories tall, 461 Dean Street, NYC, became the world’s tallest modular building. But modular isn’t just for multi-family developments, single family homeowners are using modular pods to expand small dwellings to create more living space for their growing families.
