Modular Construction Case Study: Explorer Cabins at Yosemite

Kam Valgardson, General Manager, Irontown Modular

When faced with the question of how to expand their Four-Diamond, Five-Star lodge near Yosemite National Park, Delaware North Corporation was faced with a decision to make. They were considering two options: 1) a multi-year conventional site-built expansion or 2) building individual stand-alone nightly rental cabins. They decided to build rental cabins, but it would only work if they relied on the benefits of modular construction to shorten their timeframes, and to get to market quickly. It turned out to be the right choice. Kam Valgardson from Irontown Modular lays out the challenges and successes of this project.

Modular Design Coordination – A Partnership Approach

Troy Tiddens, Modular Specialist, neUdesign Architecture

This sessions offers a look inside the design and BIM coordination process associated with modular building manufacturing. Troy Tiddens will explore similarities and differences associated with various modular design phases and how a hybrid team may be the most effective solution. Understanding the strengths of your design team will allow you to maximize efficiencies and eliminate redundancy throughout the design development process. Many times, the best solution is a hybrid approach between “traditional” design firms and those with modular manufacturing experience.
